Old style PLM cage mount hack?

I just received (in error) a used PLM with the old style center mount post - which requires a special mounting cage with a keyed center end. I don't have one of those but was wondering if anyone has created a hack for them to adapt to Bowens, Balcar or standard umbrella? I got it cheap ($20 shipped) so before I send it back thought I would check to see if there's a work around...

I could wait for the missing part to show up on Ebay but there are pretty rare and I'd rather just have the easier V2 type PLMs around anyway...  But for $20 - can I make this useful somehow?
