"universal" portrait grip?

Does anyone make something that's like a battery grip but only has a shutter release button for cameras that don't have battery grip contacts (like my K-70)?
I read about the Dicain Grip for K100d, but it doesn't seem to exist anymore and I think it was pretty sculpted to one camera.

Universal L-plate + some sort of Arca-Swiss clamp grip?

thinking of where the connection would come from if there isn't anything under the grip for electrical contacts...

I know there's wireless options, but do you want a highly critical contact/action to be based on a wireless connection?

It doesn't need to be wireless, all it needs is a couple inch long cable that goes to the wired shutter release on the camera.
that's how the Dicain was and how this nikon grip is.
