Floating dock bumper/cushion

Does anyone know of a good cushion/bumper etc to wrap around the large metal U-loop you see at the end of a floating doc/finger that is around the piling (allowing the floating finger to rise & fall with the tide).
The diameter of the U piece is around 3" - Something akin to a post bumper used in a gym

I like the white rubber type bumpers. I've never paid attention to brand but just get what's available locally or from online suppliers. I think the last I ordered came from West Marine.

I guess the proper name to what I'm referring to is a Pile Hoop. Approx 2.5-3" is diameter.

Could you place some C shaped bumper around it? Or I have seen 4 inch fender bumpers placed one on each side of the piling bracket.
