How can I attach an external battery to my Hero6 while it is in its case? The port cover can't open.

I drilled a small hole in my (helmet-mounted) Hero4's case to allow an external battery cable to be attached for all-day recording.The power port cover on the Hero4 was easily removed, not so for the Hero6. How can I run an external battery cable to my Hero6 while it's in the case?
