Default VESA Mount; Spacer Backplate, Extension Adapter (?)

Hello all, have a little problem with a Tri-LCD stand.

I got a Triple-LCD stand (horizontal), and I made the mistake of assuming the left-and-right mounts would angle in the monitors flush with center, so I could view with peripheral or a turn of the head. Instead, it's just flat horizontal, or the two on the side get pushed back 5-inches.

So basically, the 2-LCDs are 5-inches away from flush with the center screen.

This is what I got: Triple/Three LCD Monitor Stand Free Standing up to 26"

You can see what I mean here, how they are not flush, and need an adapter of some sort to extend the side screens about 5-inches:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Any ideas? If I could, I'd weld/solder something on, but I'm not capable. I'm just looking to do this in the most cost-effective, juryrig way.

I'm thinking some kind of backplate, like a box/brace, that can fasten 5-6 inch screws into the original holes. Does anything like this exist?

I ask because this stand cost me only ~72 USD. All the other stands I've shopped for, that would bring all 3 monitors flush and angled, cost about $300. Way out of my price range after already spending $80.

Could always check out a local hardware store and see what they have for spacers/screws. Maybe just some thin PVC pipe as spacers and long screws? I would check out what they have and go from there.

Hrmm, PVC pipe is a good idea, cheap and easy. I wonder how stable it would be, as thin as the VESA screws are. LCD's are new models, so they're not as heavy as they used to be.
