DIY Request: Intalling Oil pan heater

I do short trips in the winter. I want to protect my engine by heating the oil over night so that upon start up in the morning, the engine oil will be closer to operating temperature. A product like this:

It needs to be attached to the bottom of the oil pan. I know our oil pan is protected by a metal shield. Before I order the oil heater and remove the shield, has anyone done it before? Is there a flat area on the bottom of the oil pan to attach the oil heater?
