Holy cow batman , I haven't seen one of those switches in over 20 year.
We used to get our Clipsal stuff from a little indy wholesalers in South London but they closed down over 10 years ago.

Try Ebay ??

I can think of 2 options;

Install grid switches vertically
Or
Remove the machine screws from the yokes and screw through the back box with long screws
 
I would just bite the bullet and price to install a new 6 gang standard back box and fit a new 6 way grid switch

It really isn't a massive job to pull the old box out and put a new one in.
A few hours labour and the cost of a new switch.
Future proofed then for the next 50 years or so...

Wonder if you can get the pre-engraved switches with 'Boom' on them?

If you have a multicutter get that in round the sides if decor is an issue.
Slot the knockouts to get box out & new one in easier
