Extra long rear wheel skewer?

I bought a pannier rack that (by design) mounts through the rear skewer.

When I got it, I also got a Halo XL skewer so it would fit. But it was only just long enough, and now I need to fit an extra washer (to stop the mount bending inwards).

The Halo XL skewer specs state that it is for 135mm dropouts that are 10mm wide:

So now I need a skewer that's at least 6mm, but ideally 8 to 10mm longer. I've been looking for ages, but I just can't find one the right size. :(

I'd be really grateful for any suggestions! :)
