B&H L Bracket for K-3 II

I don't see L Brackets for the K-3 or K-3 II. Which L Bracket will allow access to the battery of the K-3 II?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

The only L bracket for the K3/K3II that I know of is from RRS (Really Right Stuff) - and it does allow access to the battery compartment.

Don't know if this one can be adjusted enough to give access to battery compartment. I'm considering getting this one.

I use the Desmond DBLP-1 QR L Plate from B&H. It works with the Bogen Ball Heads for monopod or tripods. Change the screw for more secure mount.

I have a Arca Swiss L-plate which came with the last D700 I had. It's well made, fits my K-1 just fine and doesn't block the battery door. It will block the tray on a battery grip though.
