Fotasy LPM L bracket for k-1

I have a rrs k-5 bracket I used on my k-5, then modified to fit my k-3. Great product, no question. Well, this time I wanted to try out a different L bracket so I picked up a fotasy lpm universal L bracket, from Amazon for $15. It fits and is usable out of the box, however with a few easy tweaks, I think it will work really good. One thing that it needs is a relief area for the DC/HMI cap and the other is shorting the bottom rail so the battery door will open. Boy I wish I still worked a machine shop, anyway I post pics of my final cobbled up bracket

I have one of these L brackets -- the quality isn't bad for $15.
I added a thicker pin to the center to keep the "L" part from torquing.
There is plenty of aluminum that can be machined away (the unit is overbuilt) -- I used a dremel tool and a hand file.

I have this L plate too. Really like it. I think I paid 15€ or so, it does what you think it should. I see no need in investing $150 for a plate like this.
