If not attainable, sewer pipe or gutter down-pipe bought from a DIY store will be okay. Or you can use the tubes used inside rolls of carpet.

Cutting the makeshift tubes down to size, make sure to leave about two inches of space on either end. This makes the rod ends are further away from danger, and there’s plenty of space to add padding.
