Tripod quick release with longer bolt / screw

I need a quick release plate with a 1/4" bolt that is a bit longer than the generic norm . A standard plate's bolt does not reach far enough to screw securely to the 1/4" female / nut thread inside the bottom of a Turns Pro camera time-lapse motor rotator. To attach securely, the bolt would have to be maybe 3/16" to 1/4"or about 5mm longer.

Many thanks if anyone can refer me to a link were an a-typical plate / bolt of this sort is for sale. I suppose a substitute might be a an extended D ring shaft inserted through a plain release plate, but I can find no plates without a bolt / shaft already in place. If I yank or pound the installed bolts out, I fear I will only crack the plastic badly.
