seat/chain stay mounts for u-lock holders?

While not commuting specific, I expect this is the best place to ask this question.

So I've stopped throwing my u-lock in my bag and put the little bracket on the top tube. It's all right, and functional there but I'd kind of prefer to have it outside the main triangle if possible. I found this picture on the abus site: http://www.abus.com/var/ImagesPIM/ab...20c53faed0.jpg

But I can't find where to buy it online, or any sort of similar products. Ideas?

It doesn't conveniently slip through my rack(topeak super tourist) anywhere nice and neat, or at all, really.

Any suggestions for minimal/no rattling would also be VERY welcome.

It looks like this is what you want Universal Cycles -- Abus USH Bracket for Abus and Abus says it fits 15mm-35mm frame tubes depending on shims used. Universal lists a bunch of other things including Twofish universal blocks

You didn't say what kind of lock you have. Your post implies you want something similar to that Abus bracket but that you may not actually have an Abus lock, which that won't work with.
