Cage / Accessory to mount mic to EOS M6 without blocking flip screen?

Recommended Posts

I know the Canon M's don't have the biggest fanbase here but I thought I'll ask anyway :)

I am looking for a small cage (or other accessory) that allows me to mount a normal coldshoe microphone sideways to the camera. Reason is, putting anything on the normal hotshoe will make the flippy screen unusable so I can't put mic there. 

The smallrig 1658 looks interesting:


Here's a pic of it I found on the m3 which has almost the same dimensions as the m6:


I can leave out the top piece and screw a coldshoe to the cheese rod but I'd prefer something that fits even tighter to the m6 and doesn't have that empty space to the side. Also can I even use this cage without the top piece for stability? 

If possible I just want something that I can screw into the tripod hole that allows me to put the microphone to the side.

Any ideas?
