Locking skewers for my Dahon Speed P8?

Hey all, just wondering if anyone knew of a set of locking skewers that will fit the narrow (~80mm) front fork on my Dahon Speed P8. I bought a set of Veratomic Quick-Locks, but alas, the front one's too long; the screw thread doesn't go far down enough.

The only other set of locking skewers I've seen is on Kryptonite's website, but they are taking forever to respond to my question about the size. Perhaps someone on this forum has had the same issue & found a solution. Thanks!

You can extend the thread on the skewer with a hand die. The are not expensive and easy to use - probably a 5 minute job.
