yongnuo flashes on k-1

i knew that the k3II didn't allow for yongnuo flashes to work due to the shape of the body of the camera and the flash/transceirvers. i thought i was fine as my transciever is rather small. it hit me yesterday that even that has an extended lip that may make it difficult/impossible to use on the k-1 body.

anyone have any solutions? i'm not sure if this even exists, but some sort of a hotshoe extender?

I can use my YN560 III quite normally on k-3II just have to make sure that I apply a bit force when mounting the flash on camera. But when using 560tx remote trigger there is much more clearance and it mounts without any problem.

The K-1, compared to the K-3II and K-3, has a slightly more elevated hotshoe, so mounting YN flashes (or other hotshoe accessories) on the K-1 should be less of an issue:

the yongnuo 4 flash works just fine with the k1.
as does the YN560-tx

both have plenty of clearing room and functions just fine. also works fine with the 1/200 sync speed
