Quick Release plate for Nex -5T

I am having problem finding a quick release plate for NEX-5T. Please help. The -5T camera has a weird contour at the bottom around the tripod screw mount which makes it hard to interface with regular quick release plate. It is slipping severely on my tripod's universal quick release plate when I am using the SEL55210 and 1.7x teleconverter lens.

I've been searching the internet and Dpreview forum archives and it seems they have quick release plates or L-Bracket manufactured for the original NEX 5 and 5N. However, since there are some design changes in the shape between 5N and 5R, the 5N release plate won't necessarily fit the 5R or 5T. I am now using some felt pads around the screw mount on the plate to help temporarily secure it but I am looking for a long term solution. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
