Jacking "Pucks"

I may be starting to sound like a commercial, but I just received jacking pucks for my 996tt. Please notice the hockey puck, the undersized example and then the piece received from http://www.maxspeed-motorsports.com . Comparable price, but the Maxspeed units do not fall out when you are trying to position the jack and with a hockey puck below it, there is instant complete protection. I plan to epoxy a hockey puck to the metal jacking puck to allow for plenty of room.

Nice to see an excellent product at a reasonable price.

I got the same one in aluminum (bottom left of your picture). Please don't be stupid like me, remember to remove them before you go for a ride ;-) I did but was lucky to found the missing one about 1 kilometer from home! Now I got a red flag on each of them! "Remove before flight"

Hi

These are such a good idea and appear to be a very safe alternative. I am going to purchase a couple. I jacked up my car for the first time this weekend (my2004 996 C4S) and the jacking points are a bit rusty and flaky (obviously where these pads haven't been used by the previous owner), and one is slightly deformed.

In order to prevent further rust, what is the best way to get rid of the existing, and what can I use once done (some sort of heavy duty sealant?)? Also, is it a no no to bend the deformed jacking point back into place, or is this likely to weaken it?

I plan on keeping the car for many years to come so don't want to hit snags later.

Thanks in advance.

Received them and they work fine . The magnetic points takes a a tiny bit of rotation to find the metallic points to attach but otherwise they "stick" fine. Not sure how aeroskirts or side skirts would get affected by these since it is about a 3x3" block that would actually relieve the distance between floor jack angle of contact an jack point .
