Chromecast hdmi extender replacement

After almost 10 months of usage my Chromecast hdmi extender that I happen to have used on all hdmi lateral ports of my household TVs started to malfunction. It is giving me blank screens, apparently the Chromecast weight after all this months finally took its toll.

I wonder if anyone here knows where I can get a replacement? I know that there are port savers sold online, but the one that came with Chromecast has a very specific lenght that I think will suit me well.

Any ideas/sugestions?

This one is a bit longer than you're looking for, but you may want to consider the 90-degree style if you can.

I know some Samsungs have recessed and fairly crowded ports, but it does help to reduce the torque on the connector. Torque and twisting especially along the "short" axis of the connector usually spells death, as it strains the connector's connection to the mainboard and eventually pops the "legs" of the connector (the part that connects to the mainboard) off.

Not the kind of extender the OP is looking for... if you're going to do a balun type extender you may as well just use your device's HDMI output.
