Shorty antenna broke off (again!)

Great, so my short antenna broke off again this morning. Barely bumped the thing and it just snapped off. If I can't get the incredibly flimsy bolt out, I'll need a new antenna base again.
Anyone know of an antenna that would replace the base? Like an all-in-one antenna? I think that would be a lot easier than replacing the antenna base every time I bump it. :/

happened to me last winter. replaced the base and used a cut down stock antenna because the nub wouldnt come out of the shorty (tried to drill and extract) and the stock one wiggles a little.

I need to get a shorty antenna, I'm sick of it hitting my garage door when I'm driving in. (mostly because i'm too impatient to wait untill the door get's all the way to the top)
