Is the Cobalt's Stock Shift Knob Interchangeable?

I'm just curious, because virtually every aftermarket shift knob is meant to be threaded on, and the Cobalt's shift knob is just held on by nothing more than 2 clips. does this mean it's basically impossible to find an aftermarket shift knob that will actually fit on the stock shifter correctly?

TLDR:

Do I need to install a short shifter in order to indulge in the world of aftermarket shift knobs, or am I just missing out on a website/location that sells Cobalt compatible shift knobs? ;P
