Flash bracket for K-1?

I need a flash bracket, mostly for K-1, and occasionally for K-5iis. Not expensive, but reliable. So far I'm thinking about this one

Vello QuickDraw Rotating Flash Bracket CB-100 B&H Photo Video

It's cheap, has pretty good ratings, and the handle is on opposite side of grip. It's hard to tell from the picture if will fit K-1.
What bracket would you recommend?

I have one that is basically the same as this, though different brand, and like it very much.

I have the Stroboframe 350 which is probably the same bracket. Works OK with the K-1 but a little cramped. The rotating camera versions are better but pricier.

Thank you, guys. I still don't know if I will use that setup, the more important to know that it fits. It's totally new territory to spend so much to enter for now.

I have the exact one that you are referring to. It works really well. I have both the K-3II and the K-5IIS and it will work with either.

I received the bracket today. It works well, and not very heavy. Good price for starting when it's unclear how often I actually will use it.
