Brake Bleeders

I got new calipers powder coated from mikethepowdercoater, and I'm trying to bleed my brakes. The back ones went fine, but when I started on the front passenger the inside bleeder wasn't long enough to seal and the caliper and the fluid kept coming out. I just got new bleeders to replace a couple of them and no other bleeder is long enough. Does anyone know if these bleeder screws are different for the front inside? Or if they changed the size for certain years. My car is a 2011, but I don't know what these calipers came off of. Please help.

Pics please.

The factory screws and the replacement ones from racing brake were more than long enough.

A friendly FYI: If you hate bleeding brakes like I do and the whole open/push/close/repeat a hundred times, you might want to check into speedbleeders. It's a bleed screw that has a built in check valve; crack it open/push pedal all you like/close when bled. LOVE the things!!!

I've got a brake bleeder pump so now worries there, but
