arca-swiss compatible plate for acratech gv2 with my K-5

I am looking for a quick release plate that I can use with my acratech gv2. Does anyone know where I can find one that has the anti rotating on it and works with my vertical grip too?

I don't think they sell a regular quick release plate for K-5 w/vertical grip. There is an ebay seller named Mestos that sells it. The part number is PD-K5H, if you are looking for one too. People on this forum told me it is also arca-swiss compatible.

I have been using the Mestos plates for a couple months now on my K5 with grip and they are well made and excellent fit. Arca-swiss/anti-twist/center point alignment mark. Both plates are for use on K7/K5 with D-BG4 Vertical Grip. Mestos is the plate brand - "dhsummer" is the ebay seller I bought from.

1. PD-K5HL - L Plate $149.90
2. PD-K5H - Standard non L plate version $49
