Silly Questions about L-Brackets

I know this is going to be a silly question but does anyone know if the Kirk or RRS l-brackets for the K-1 fit the K-3II? I'm having a hell of a time trying to find a Mestos, RRS, or Kirk bracket that fits the K-3, K-5 or K-7.

I'm assuming that this was a lower case L regarding the RRS brackets rather than a type name.

Are you referring to this one?
Plates for Pentax K-1

There is a universal one from 3 legged things. : 3 Legged Thing QR11-LC Universal L-Bracket (Orange) : Camera & Photo

I suppose it will fit on the K-5 but I do not own it.

I had one of these cheap universal from Ebay. (MPU105 L Bracket Q/R Plate Universal Quick Release Plate For DSLR Cameras 404339570652 | eBay)

It fits the K-5, unfortunately the Arca Swiss fitting is poor so when I attached it to my tripod head it was just stuck on it. Which was fun.

The RRS bracket I have for the K-1 does not fit the K-5.

You need one for the k-3...

No idea if these work:
QR Quick Release L Plate Bracket For Pentax K3 K5II S K5 K30 K50 K500 KS1 KS2 | eBay

K-3 L Bracket Options -

RRS shows a discontinued L bracket for the K-3. Perhaps you can find one used.

Thank you, yes I meant l-bracket with a lowercase. And that's what I thought, that the K-1 bracket wouldn't fit.

I've tried some universal brackets but I found them lacking. That's why I'm looking for the RRS, Mestos or Kirk K-7/K-5/K-3 l-brackets but I can't find any used, unfortunately.
