L-Bracket for K-3 with Grip

Has anyone found one that has a not twist ridge to secure the camera and grip?
I bought this one
GLA-01 Universal Quick Release L-Plate w/ Grip - DSLR Hunter
It is beautifully engineered but does not fit.
The K-3 with Grip needs an L-Bracket that has a distance of at least 82.75mm from the end of the plate to the center of the screw that attaches to the grip tripod hole.
I have not found a Universal L plat that fits, has a ridge that enables the grip to secure snugly preventing twist and also allows the grip battery drawer o open.
Please let me know if you have found a good L-Bracket for the K-3 with grip

Thanks for posting hat looks good - very secure. I am still hoping for a dedicate bracket like I have fr the K-5. This solution requires an arca plate for the camera and you cannot change the battery while the bracket is mounted

At least you can still slide the camera out of that clamp and change the battery without unscrewing anything. I think this one copies the design from arcatech
