I am trying to track down a cable with the following attributes. Please help!   :)

Lightning Cable
<3ft (preferable 1ft)
Flat (or ribbon) style
Right angled USB

Thanks shoppers!!  

The best I could find is this (but I would prefer if it was flat): http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=112&cp_id=11213&cs_id=1083101&p_id=11473&seq=1&format=2

The specific application is a car iPod connection. In my car, there is a door that conceals that USB ports, there isnt enough room for the door to close with a normal full height USB cable, but I think there could be enough room for a right angle

I've been down this road with my phone and the car, the antenna part for rural is hidden under the back cover, go figure, so I ended with a wireless antenna extender for my phone that had a magnet base and stuck it on the roof of my car
Is this to prevent lightning shock while in your car? with the ipod?
To my knowledge the rubber tyres protect you from voltage shock while staying inside the vehicle.
Is this more suitable it's in the images I posted, small flat

It might work, but I am still worried about the door being able to close. Here is a picture of the USB port / door that I am talking about.

I think the idea is to use only when in car/ keep lid open during this time and remove USB device when leaving the vehicle.
Maybe you could use some crafty stuff like peel and stick/ or just press onto the edge, as it's rubber wont leave any marks but will prevent the lid from closing fully. on the edge lid cover edge
edge rubber

peel and stick
Is this the door?
It wouldn't have any weight
is the lid coverDoes your ipad plug into the stereo or radio?
