Recommended Shockmount for sE X1 S + PF8 Pro?

Hi there,

I bought a PF8 Pro to go with my sE X1 S and the mic holder that came with the sE does not hold and so the sE & PF8 just falls to the ground and so I was recommended the sE Shockmount and I am planning to return it because the pointy ends are protruding.

I tried the Aston Swift Universal Shockmount and through hindsight it just slips so may return that too (Others say the Rycote is stronger but I don't think it'll be strong enough for this either) and tried searching up the right Shockmount for this and all I found was these types of Shockmounts https://d1aeri3ty3izns.cloudfront.net/media/8/89643/1200/preview.jpg and will inserting the sE mic into the Shockmounts hole to this point where I am pointing my finger at keep it stable or will it just slip? https://drive.google.com/file/d/1prB1tWTruu2awLJeyxDYJifYjhJc87AQ/view?usp=sharing

There's also the Alctron MA840A Shockmount but I am unsure if it's version of the Quick-Release Mechanism will hold the sE X1 S and if it does then will it will be long enough to get to an optimal position in the PF8 Pro that it'll be stable such as not slipping or wobbling because it's not in far enough?

The sE X1 S length is 169mm (6.65 in) and the Alctron Mic on the Alctron PF8 Pro is 182mm (7.19 in) and the weight is 445 g (15.70 oz.) and the PF8 Pro's weight is 461g (16.26 oz)

By the way, I have the mic

By the way, I have the mic sideways and not straight up and unfortunately I cannot have it straight up because of the layout & size of my room.
