you are worried about the wrong problem - the pad did NOT fall off, the metal of the bracket snapped and twisted, causing me to nearly lose an outboard overboard overboard. It happened whilst going along at about 25 knots, single handed, engine was hanging there supported by not much, was lucky it had not twisted the other way into the shaft of main engine

Will probably never use one again! And yes, it was rated for that size engine.

I placed my aux. straight on the transom with a transom engine pad fitted. Works great, leaves plenty of room for the main engine to turn. Only issue is that I had to lose my starboard towing eye.
