L plate for K5 with grip-

I am looking for a swiss arca style L plate for the Pentax K5 with battery grip. Not having any luck in finding one here in Canada. I put this question out on the forum here and was informed that there is one made in Korea by Mestos; model PD K5HL I believe. Do you have any information on this?

Sadly, we do not carry a dedicated "L" bracket for the K5 with or without grip. We do carry the Kirk QRLB-T Universal Quick Release Tall L-Bracket. It's a dual-sided bracket that mounts to an Arca-Swiss-style clamp in either landscape orientation or tilted 90 for portrait mode. This enables efficient changes in the orientation of your camera, without the need to tilt your ball head and re-level the shot. In contrast to tilting the head 90, when you tilt the bracket your camera remains centered over the tripod. The QRLB-T is designed to accommodate all DSLR and SLR cameras, even those that have a battery grip attached to the bottom.

Thanks Chuck. I decided to order a dedicated L -bracket for Pentax K5 made by a company called Mestos. From what I've just recently read on this forum its quality and fit are very good.
