And, here is the re-configured Portrait setup:



Just make sure that you have clearance for the "clamshell" to open and for the Key to be used in either case.
In the portrait you will need spacers on top of rubber isolators and longer bolts for fixing the spacers.

Especially, if you accidentally bent the back plate while fastening it.
