Extension for Link Box Power

Has anyone found an extension cable for the Vive Link Box power plug? I purchased a 3.5mm x 1.3mm but it ended up not being the right size. I guess that's the size for the headset side of the linke box. I want to move the wall wart out of the way and use the extension cable. From everything I could find and my own measurements, it looks like the plug is 3.75mm x 1.35mm.

That's how I have it now. The problem is that now the wall wart is dragging on the ground which is putting stress on the wire connection. If I can get an extension, then the wall wart will be in the outlet and the wires can move freely.

Here is what I'm working on for anyone else running into this same issue. I just ordered the below two items from eBay:

and this from Amazon:

I don't know if these will be the right size but I'm going to find out. I will post back here what I find.

This ended up working. I cut the plugs off and attached them to a longer cable. The male connector they sent was actually 3.5mm and not 3.8mm like advertised but the female plug was 3.8mm. The 3.5mm seems to be working but I wouldn't necessarily recommend doing this :)

 

I tried ordering more 3.8mm male connectors since they're onyl $2 shipped. I'll report back if these are the right size.
