Your point is well taken.
It just doesn't apply to this brand.

I would agree. Meyer is known to NOT cut corners. However, still curious why the chose foam and not felt....

I've got a great idea!
Since the company has such a great reputation, they'd surely be available.

Why don't you call them up on the telephone and ask them?
That way, all the speculation and wondering would no longer be an issue.

You'll probably have a hard to impossible time getting any DIY help (or even parts other than a driver) from Meyer.
They are so quality control conscious, the standard reply is 'send it in so we can bring it back to full specification'.
I ran into this a couple of times, on things i thought were an easy fix in the field.
