Re-read post No5.
They don't care what you want. They care about selling stuff.
And, they don't care if you're pissed.
You asked a question. That is the answer.

2 foot long? I doubt it.
But, you could buy a 12" extension, cut it and splice in 12" (or whatever is required) using a soldering iron and some shrink tube.

The Date code is 20170201 (made in 01/02/2017)
