Pocket Wizard Plus III and Canon 580EX

Just bought 2 PW Plus III's yesterday to trigger my 580EX's and found that my 580's do not have a plug-in for my PW's.

I also thought I'd be able to fire my Quantum T5DR with the PW's, but nope, it doesn't have a plugin either.

Does anyone have any idea what I need to fire my flashes with my PW's?

Thanks in advance!

A hot shoe with a PC port should work just fine I think for the flashes. Something like this hotshoe from Gadget Infinity is what I mean. There are lots of options and I'm not advocating this model, it was just the first thing that popped up on my google search.

Edit - Actually I would not suggest that model because it does not have a light stand adapter, but you get the idea.
