Looking to use 580EXii's with Photogenic 3x4 softbox

I use that big and beautiful light with my photogenic studiomax II lights but on some shoots I would love to be able to use speedlights but have no idea how I would mount the softbox to a light stand without the moonlight/speed ring.

I saw a post where someone used a GAry Fong and attached it to the speed ring and provided an avenue for  speedlight attachment but supporting the soft box is the primary task at hand...

Any ideas besides buying different lights?
