[LitePro Carrier Block] Height?

Hello,

If someone bought Litepro's "Front Carrier Carrier Block For Brompton Bicycle", I need to know its inner height to make sure it fits a bike I'm interested in.

Thank you.

Edit: LitePro built a new model, pointing in a differerent direction.

Litepro makes two versions:Provided both fit the bike, which one would you recommend, and why?

Would something like this fit a Dahon?

How do you like it?

Does it wobble with a bag filled to the max (8kg)?

During initial installation and test, the adapter slipped/moved a bit to one side when under load due to metal on metal there's no grip, then I put in some shim (cut out some old inner tube strips) then reinstall and it has much better grip. So far no slipped but still experimenting with different load and riding conditions. See pic for details.

I made a diy version for my Xootr Swift. I bonded inner tube to all contact surfaces of the carrier with contact cement to protect the surfaces of the bike in case of any movement. By bonding the rubber, you can trim it with a razor knife.
