I have the new Nikon 80-400mm lens which comes with a tripod ring. However, when my D800 has got the battery grip on it, I can't use my Manfrotto tripods... The release on the head does not have space enough to open, as it goes against the battery grip.

I have looked for a "raiser" to the Manfrotto plate, but they do not produce such a thing.

Is there a simple solution to this, other than taking off the battery grip when using the 80-400mm?

Here is a pic of the combination:
