Half-length mini PCIe extetender

Seems like this should be an easy question with a common answer, but I can't find anything.

There are two lengths for mini PCIe cards, 50.95mm (regular) and 26.8mm (half-length).  I have a laptop that has a regular length slot and needs a new wireless card, unfortunately all new intel wireless cards are half-length.  Since the card relies on screws to be held down, I need a bracket to physically extend the card out to the mounting holes.

I would really like to make this as professional as possible since I intend to sell the laptop, but my fall back plan is to make my own out of scrap aluminum or some old erector pieces.

Thanks everyone!

Edit: Guess this is more of a challenge than I realized... MORE POINTS!

WayneATaylor: Thanks for the suggestion, but that contraption is WAY over engineered.  If nothing else, there's no way it would fit into the laptop since it adds 10mm to the height!  All I want is like a plastic bracket that clips or screws to the end of the half-length card to move the holes out to the full length location.  it seems logical that something like this would come with ALL half-length cards.

Hope this helps others.  The biggest problem was the ambiguous name of the item.
