Does ANYONE make a 49.5" 4 rib belt?

Does ANYONE make a 49.5" 4 rib belt?

The Gatorback 4040500 has stretched out to the point where when it's wet and I put the A/C on it slips, the 4040490 is too small and won't fit, I need a 495 to fit right, does anyone make such a belt or am I just SOL.

The 490 is fairly tight to get on as the adjuster is damn near at the full taut range of it's adjustment and requires a bit of finess to slip the belt over (it just barely fits), but it's on with minimal hassel and works great.

EDIT: Note that these need to be a Gates/Napa belt. I've tried other brands of belts in the 490 length and they will not fit.

So that's the "trick" get a NAPA belt in 490. I was going to say, the Gatorback won't even come close to fitting. Oh well, looks like I'll have to make a trip to NAPA, I wonder if I can get my AutoZone employee discount there,LOL.
