Very useful
2016 Club
I have two. Very handy for pinch welds and for giving an extra bit of rise with floor jack. Also makes the jack more versatile. And if you care, you won't scratch the aluminum cross members. I did notice a bit of spalling (as bit of flaking)on one of the pucks which was principally used to lift the car from the fore and aft cross members. So repeatedly lifting about 1200 lbs must have compressed it. The 2nd one has only be used on pinch welds and its fine.

I like this thing
I like it so much I bought two. If you are not careful though it will stick to the car when you lower the car and remove the jack. I was at the store and I thought what is that thing hanging off my car, and there it was, in all its glory, hanging on for dear life. I hate to admit it but I think it happened twice and there is an old Chines saying 'If it happened twice it will happen again'.

A must have.
If you are going to work on you Miata, or any other cars with pinch welds I highly recommend this jack adapter. Its soft enough it wont chew up the seam, but strong enough ot doesnt flex under the weight of the vehicle. You want to keep you car rust free? Start with this and dont chew up your pinch welds.

Works as advertised-- Love it!
My '02 Miata sits really low (H&R lowering springs) and it's extremely difficult to find a lift point under the car for my low-profile jack that doesn't interfere with setting up the jack stands.
This item allows me to the jack up the car using the pinch welds without damaging them and makes the entire process so much faster.
Funny story: After doing a coolant flush and thermostat replacement, I took the car for a spirited, 30-minute drive to test the system. When I got back home, I noticed I had accidentally left the puck on the pinch weld. It was on so tight, it didn't fall off!

Cheap and lovely, just buy it
You may think you may not need it, but once you use one, you won't ever want to use a jack without one. So much easier to jack up the front and rear of the car from the side at the same time. The larger opening fits the middle section of the pinch welds tightly with my "Tupperware" side skirts, and the tighter opening fits perfectly tight on the normal jacking points. I have accidentally driven my Miata to class with it stuck on, and it held on tightly for the several mile drive. Hilariously enough, I was admiring the side of my car I would normally not coming back from class and saw something weird on the bottom of my car. Oops! Although relatively inexpensive, it would've been a bummer to lose it for sure. I've also flipped it over and used it to raise the rear of my car by the differential. For weird cars like Teslas that don't have normal jacking points, this flat side would likely come in handy as well.

Perfect for an NC3
A must have for any Miata. I used it today to lift the and install a new set of wheels. It was a perfect fit on the 2013 PRHT pinch welds.

Square stock adds rigidity
Brazed similar fix years ago for jackstands, using square tubular stock. Tube stock fits the same space, but the second wall makes it far stronger, this []_[] versus this ]_[ Might be worth it on version 2.

top choice pinch weld adapter
Well built. A strong, quality made tool that is an essential item in your tool box. I use it on many different vehicles and it fits and works fabulously. I feel lost without it.

Worth every penny
This is an awesome tool, and it works for just about anything with pinch welds that you use to jack up a car with.
