EM-5 - Remote Shutter release

Maybe this problem exists on PEN cameras and the solution is well known but as I never used a PEN...

Does anybody know how a remote cable release can be connected when the EM-5 is used on a tripod in portrait-orientation with a "L-plate"? As far as I can see, the camera's connector cover & microUSB socket will become inaccessible.

(I use a ReallyRightStuff L-plate on my E3. The E3 layout made Remote cable access difficult, but not impossible, in portrait orientation. It seems like the EM-5 takes this problem to a new level.)
