All that clip does is hold the drum brake in position so it doesn't rotate. If you were to put the load of a caliper on that thin piece of metal the twisting reaction would distort it immediately.

That machined adapter looks like it might do the job though. I'm thinking of replacing the band brake with a disk and that looks like the way to go.
