What don't you think would work...logistically, mechanically, what?
While I'm not saying they won't work, there are RF Interference problems associated with certain Canon Speedlites. The problems can be overcome, but is it worth the extra cost & trouble? The easy solution is to use Phottix Odins. They essentially work like an OC-E3 cord. Here are some of the advantages the Odins have:
• 2.4Ghz frequency which solves the RF problem
• ETTL II metering
• HSS instead of PW's problematic Hypersync®
• EV adjustment (+/- 3 stops in 1/3 stop increments - 18 different levels)
• backwards compatible with other Phottix receivers (up to the receiver's capabilities)
• no melted Speedlites because of RF blanket
• they work all of the time

NOTES ON OVERALL SYSTEM PERFORMANCE:
- RF Interference: Canon Speedlite models 580EX, 580EX II, 270EX II, and especially the 430EX (not the 430EX II), emit RF interference that can substantially reduce the effective operating range of many radio slaves, including the FlexTT5. For these model flashes, please utilize the mounting suggestions on Page 30 of the original Owner’s Manual to optimize range.
Using Canon’s Off Shoe Cord OC-E3 to separate the flash from the FlexTT5 greatly improves range (4 – 5x). Adding a ferrite choke on the cable near the flash increases range similarly. Placing the FlexTT5 above the flash by 18” or more, and angled as pictured in the manual on page 30, improves reception dramatically. All three of these simple solutions combined provide the best reception.
The Canon 430EX II and 550EX do not emit significant RF interference. These flash models provide the best range performance. The 420EX, 270EX and 220EX are somewhere in-between the “quiet” flashes and the “RF noisy” models and may perform acceptably. All Speedlites can benefit from the suggested techniques as they provide the best opportunity for optimizing your lighting and your radio reception independently.
