1/4 in. is the allowance used to make sure you can get the clevis over the plate. When specifying a clevis, you specify the grip as the plate thickness plus 1/4 in. Going the other way, you'd have to contact a manufacturer to know what their standard grip is, if they have one. I suggest you contact Bud Parka of Cleveland City Forge (216/526-1600). He's been very helpful to me in the past.
