How to fit a hero 4 into a karma grip harness for hero 5

Hello everyone.

So yesterday I got my karma grip, I didn't realize we need to buy the harness for the gopro hero 4 separate (completely my bad, I didn't read everything) so yesterday I bought the harness BUT shipping is going to take 5 to 7 days, I'm leaving next Saturday December 17 to South America for an entire month.
I need to find out a way to attach my gopro hero 4 black to the harness of the hero 5 in case I don't get the shipping before Saturday 17. I don't want to return the karma.
I checked in all my local stores and nothing, I check eBay, Amazon, procam, etc and nothing.

So before I break this harness to fit my gopro Im asking you people or somebody knows a way to fit the gopro 4 on the gopro 5 harness?.
I saw 5 screws where the conectors are located on the harness, maybe if a take those screws out it work (yesterday I didn't want to do nothing like that, new toy everybody it's extremely carefully and don't want to do any damage to the new toy... Yeah that's true but now I need to find a alternative if I don't get the harness on time. I don't mind to break this one, take the conector out somehow)

I'm not buying the gopro 5 not even the 6 or 7 in the future, I'm Okey with my hero 4.
Yesterday I put the hero 4 on the edge of the harness and it fit Okey, the harness grab the hero 4 but it's pushing the recording bottom the entire time. So I close the harness "click" and the camera Start recording right away lol. I don't want to used like that but if I don't have other option I will.

Any ideas before I start taking pieces apart?

Thanks for the help gopro forum!!!!

Make a video of what you are going to do and share it. the Harness cost 30.00 right? Did the store give you the options for a hero 4 grip? Hero 5 grip? Or is it just a hero 5 grip only?
If you can snap a picture of the harness maybe we all can understand more clearly?bpm it.

I not cut things that close, shipping opions were there , if asked? Rubber band the sucker

Is it possible to take the side door off and then band it? the second pic withthe ports really says it all. Wonder if removing the two bolts will get the harness off but still need a housing on it. so Iguess its best to wait till the very end and then tear into this. Use it like you have it with a rubber band then breaking it.
