Try the PVC pad that was suggested via link. It works great, is cheap,
and very durable!!
The AT design is fantastic...however the plastic used is much too fragile,
only used mine twice, and broke it BOTH times. We've used the PVC design
for a couple of years now, and other than needing a fresh coat of
less money, works almost as good, and is a million times more sturdy, you
cannot go wrong.
It will take you longer to find the parts at the local Menard/Home Depot
than it will to put together.
