I strongly advise switching to a different type of tripod mounting, specifically the Arca-Swiss system. Then you can use a custom-made bracket such as Kirk or Really Right Stuff L-bracket (or quick release plate). But you'd need a new tripod head (and likely you will end up with a new tripod). It won't be inexpensive, but you'll find that it's a vast improvement, and not just cosmetically.
