Lightstand umbrella bracket adapter

Could you please tell me what I need exactly to make my lightstand who has a top like this (See photo) be usuable with the umbrella bracket which has a fitting end and adapters like that (See photos). Is there a missing piece which I can't find anywhere. Do you know where I can find that missing item that could make my lightstand usable?

Leave the silver threaded adapter that fits into the swivel out of the equation, you don't need it here. The top part of the light stand should fit directly in the umbrella swivel where you put the threaded adapter. Turn the knob on the swivel to tighten and hold it in place.

As BrianR said, just don't use the silver removable knob. That knob can be used to mount an umbrella holder on a regular tripod when you don't have an actual lightstand available, apart from that it's useless.
