You can use a pancake connector for every other jack only. For instance, input (1) and output (1) and expression, if you wish. They'll run semi-parallel to the floor but not completely, if that makes sense. So if you're running mono, no worries. On my small board I run mono and use the Reverb.com patch cables on my H9 with no problem. They have the same connector as the link you reference.
FWIW, on my larger pedal board I run pre/post (which requires both input and output jacks) and an OX9 in the expression jack, so I use the George L cables with their right angle connectors. Works very well. Hope this helps.
