Where can I get a chain tug for forward facing dropouts?

After snapping my QR today (years of overtightening it to stop the back wheel moving in the dropout) I've decided I need a chain tug.

There's lots on the bay but I've no idea if they're for horizontal dropouts or what. Can someone suggest something?

I suppose you'd call my dropouts sloping forward facing, it's an old Raleigh frame (early 80's).

I got mine from my LBS.

None of those in your link would work as they all seem to be fir BMXs with rear facing dropouts.
