Catalina 22 Keel Spacing

Has anyone else put the centering kit on the keel for a swing keel Catalina? I have the entire kit, with the upgraded housings but I noticed that the "pads" that go on the keel that swing into the trunk do not fit snugly.

This concerns me because that means all of that torsion is going to be on those housings (which are fixtured with very small bolts) instead of being dispersed throughout the trunk. Anyone else have this concern or any thoughts on the matter?
