I've seen them at Home Depot and just found some on Amazon- not sure they are the right size, maybe also the Container Store.

that style is actually what I went onto HDs site to look for, and didn't see them, but wasn't sure what the magic combination of 'tube', 'storage', 'container' was to get to them

Agree - I started at HD and thought I'd have this reply in 30 seconds. I searched for 10 minutes before finding the right search words as you note, but knew they were out there. Not sure any of them are the perfect size, but you covered that in your post.

Know you asked for a tube but wanted to give you an alternative. I use a nylon mesh bag with a drawstring. Benefit is that I can stuff it in the little area on the drivers side trunk plus don’t have to ever worry about breakage. I have the 7 x 10 size.

Honestly I've got mine in a mesh bag like was previously mentioned as well. Very nice easy solution.

My lift pads are aluminum (2.5 inch diameter) purchased on e-bay and 4 of them fit perfectly in a 3-ball plastic can for tennis balls.
