Default Spark Plug Adapter ... which one to use?

Hello

Yesterday during 100h maintenance on a buddy's RV-7A/IO-320/2x P-Mag, two of the spark plug adapter seized, when I removed the plugs out of them.

One we could rescue, one needs replacement.

For sure, we where using the "Spark Plug Thread Lubricant" from Champion, last time we installed them (shake this well and stir with a screwdriver,
the particles in this liquid are separating quick and form a thick layer on the bottom of the bottle).
Is this the right stuff to apply, or are there any better one?

There are four supplier for such adapters:
1. SDSEFI (Ross Farnham)
2. FLYEFII (Robert Paisley)
3. Lightspeed (Klaus Savier)
4. EMAGAIR (Brad Dement)

Most are known here. I have only experience with those from EMAGAIR.
When they are new, they are really difficult to engage in the cylinder (heli-coil) and need a knife and file to get them work.

Any other experience, recommendation from you, would be highly appreciated!

I'm planing to get a set for replacement and I have no connection to these companies!

Hmmm ... better use "search-function" next time. There is also some information, but not exactly as I questioned it:
