    Assuming its the clover leaf design (which my Z3 has)...i found it impossible to buy one longer than 2m (believe me i tried). so bought one of these from Lindy to extend it in conjunction with a standard PC power cable - worked great

    Built my own with £2 worth of wood and a £20 IKEA blackout blind.
    Check the screens forum for other DIY options and links to DRH screens who seem to be fairly respected and aren't viciously expensive.
