Garmin 1/4 turn male banded mount?

All of the curved base mounts with the silicone bands for Garmins I've seen are female type. I'm looking for a banded, or stick on, curved base male mount.
I have an external power supply that fits under my saddle, on the front of the seat post. It powers my rear facing GoPro camera (carrying and changing batteries every 45 minutes or so just doesn't cut it.) It's about the same diameter as the seat post. Currently, I have a Garmin female mount banded to the post, and another banded to the power supply, with two of the flat base stick on male phone case adapters stuck together to connect them up. It would be much neater if I could use a male banded mount on the power supply, but all my searches have come up blank.
Has anyone seen on of these, and if so, could you provide a link to it?
Thanks!

There are repair mounts to fix garmin gps units, but you would have to add to them to get bands

Not ideal, but hey, it works! I used a standard female banded mount and a stick-on male phone case adapter. Some careful trimming with a scroll saw on the male mount, and it sticks very securely inside the female opening.

Wow, those are great, especially the first one! Not cheap, but they are just what I've been looking for. I can't for the life of me figure out why Garmin doesn't offer something like that, unless they only want you to use Garmin products.
Oh, wait.
Thank you very much!

Glad that was a help.
