I like this idea!  I could live with this or with the threaded rod.  
Since Graydon was nice enough to send the specs on diameter and 
pitch, I might just see if I can find the threaded rod or a long bolt 
(which I can cut off...)  OR........... I might find a use for some 
re-bar and my bench grinder to make a "U" like the one you describe.  
I betcha that's no more than a 20-minute job, and I think re-bar 
would work.

(Sounds like a guy with a new bench grinder looking for an excuse to 
make sparks, right??)

Hmmmmm....lessee....didn't I see some re-bar around here......?
