As has been said in many reviews, this puck works very well on top of a hydraulic jack, to provide a fairly soft and level surface between the jack head and the jacking point of the car. I don't understand why the manufacturers of hydraulic jacks don't make such parts, as you can't really use a jack without them, but since they don't this puck is a vital accessory for any jack owner.
Be warned, however, that the puck is very tough (as it needs to be to support a heavy car), so cutting the four necessary grooves into its surface is quite hard - I had to use a cutting blade on a Dremel rotary tool at over 20,000rpm in the end, in conjunction with a tough flat-head screwdriver. It took about an hour to do this, but once done it fitted securely onto my jack.
As a bonus I'm told that you can use this to play hockey on ice, although I can't see why you'd want to. Good product.
Like a lot of people, I bought some of these pucks to use with my trolley jack to prevent damaging the sills on my car, and for this they work great.
As the rubber is very hard it was difficult to cut a groove along the centre line, I used a Dremel, a chisel and some elbow grease and they worked fine.
Regards using them for Ice Hockey, I'm sure they work fine for that too!

good to be a bit of a cheeky bugger and state that i bought these as sill protectors for jacking my car up!
cut a groove in them and they are really good strong rubber for such a job, and buying these are much cheaper than buying ready cut ones, in fact they look just the same, so save yourself some money and buy these and cut your own grooves, junior hacksaw and your done.

I've never B-E-E-N to a HOCKEY game, but, BEING an American, abroad, I've, occasionally, called a German "putz"
a "hockey puck", because, well, there's NOTHING as shockingly inappropriate as calling someone a HOCKEY PUCK!
I bought four to make my desk high enough for my knees. Great door bumper, too!
