When I use the GP-E2 on my 5D Mk III with a battery grip and a Really Right Stuff L-Bracket the cable sticks out blocking most of the side portion of the L-bracket.  Does anyone know of a solution for this problem?

Would their cable relief spacer work, i.e.,

I assume you are mounting the GP-E2 in the flash hot shoe. If so the GP-E2 should communicate with the camera through the hot shoe without a cable.

Perhaps the OP is using a flash in the hotshoe, and therefore needs to attach the GP-E2 via USB?  Otherwise, there's no need for the USB cable with the 5DIII...
