If you are talking about the item cited in the first post on this thread, some of that here:

Then, that post is before the Mk III existed, should work fine on your Mk II.

Do you have those M5 to M6 adapters on your Nomad?  Look like these?

The kickstand adapter is basically one of those M5 to M6 adapters but has a bar on it to attach to the kickstand.


JohnR:
A low-cost and lightweight alternative if the bike isn't heavily loaded is https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B08T187GPX (effectively a Chinese version of https://upstandingbicycle.com/shop/the-upstand/. The description says "Suitable for 26/27.5inch mountain bike & 700C wheel road bike". However, I found that the provided length is fine for my Mercury with 50mm 650B tyres but is short for my new bike with 38mm 700C tyres resulting in the bike leaning more than looked prudent. I rectified this by making a 10mm insert (piece of tube with a slot down one side) to go between the two halves. I don't bother with folding it and just clip it into the provided carrier which I fitted on the side of the seat tube.

I've just bought the   Dropout Adaptor with kickstand mount & the recommended Pletscher  kick stand & the bolts are too narrow .If SJS know this why not provide the correct bolts ? What a waste of time .

Trust me even if the correct size was supplied, the spring action of the kickstand engaging and dis-engaging causes vibration to resonate down from the locating bar of the bracket and causes the bracket bolts to the bicycle frame to work loose, and quite quickly I found. That was with thread-locked blue bolts.
What you need is to purchase is 2xM5 that are just so slightly longer (I recall either 20mm can't remember off top my head), screw in the bracket and back on from the other side of the dropout area some 2xM5 washer and 2xNylon insert Lock nuts. Problem solved the above nuisance.
Do the same with the 2xM6 bolts as well that hold the kickstand to the bar, just so slightly longer and back on washer and locknut from other side.

Hope this helps  :)
