The pipe that reaches from the plug to the bottom of the fe is screwed into it, try if a fitting fits with the threads. If so, cut away the original release valve from the plug and screw the fitting into it from the top.

It worked with my fire extinguisher but there will be some bottlenecking due to the smaller fitting.
