Lightbulb Jack pad for 944

I've been looking to buys a 944 jack pad for my floor jack, the factory jack has a pad with a nub that fits the jack point on the car, I'm guessing that this is to ensure the jack does not slip. I donn't like using the jack that comes with the car for general repairs so I want to use the floor jack to lift the car using the factory recommended jack point marked by the diamond under the doors. In the past I thought I was OK to use the "hockey pucks" behind the front wheels but according to some recent info this tend to bend and damage the floor.

I searched the Pelican Parts site without success only found jacks but I did find something at Vertex that looks promising but I need to confirm if they are the ones.

No picture was available! I can call Vertex on Monday but I wanted to see what everyone else on the board thought of the idea.

That is probably it - looks like a hockey puck with a nub in the center to fit the hole.

Vertex is a little pricey though
