Default Guinness tap handle replacement?

All right, the g/f somehow convinced me to get a nitrous tap... Got it all working great. The only problem is that it's a tall Guinness tap handle, and it interferes with the freezer door. I've temporarily taped the 2 door handles together to prevent accidents, but what I really need is a shorter Guinness-style tap handle.

The current handle is not the screw-on type. Instead, it has a screw on its side, which (I assume) is to remove the handle.

Any thoughts for a replacement? Doesn't have to be a Guinness brand one.

How about a vintage Guinness handle? Much shorter than the standard, and still uses the pin instead of the screw on tap. I find them on Ebay from time to time.

They make an adapter to use standard handles.

Did you find an adapter in the end? I also have a guinness tap that is too tall to fit in my fridge.
