Help Indentifying Windex

Hello everybody, I recently picked up a late 80's model Compac 16/2 and am loving it. I took it out for a couple of shakedown cruises to figure out if there were any issues I needed to address. Although it isn't a necessity, one thing that I would really like is a mast-mounted Windex. It looks like a previous owner had one as there is a bracket riveted to the top of the mast. I live out in the boonies and the closest boat equipment store is two hours away--I made the trip but couldn't find a windex that would fit in my bracket.

Can anyone identify the type of windex I need based on this photo? The top has a round hole and the bottom has a small rectangular hole. I would really like to find what fits this thing rather than drill out rivets and/or make more holes in my mast.

Thanks,
Brian

I would not look too hard. A couple of new holes would be a non-issue up there.
