    I'm not aware of one, but I have seen posts from time to time on how to do the mods yourself if you can operate a soldering iron. Here is a guide for the RM-CB1, but it should be the same for the RM-UC1:

    Also, the Chinese clone of the RM-UC1 (MA-J made by JJC) available on e-bay has a socket you can plug in an extension cable (meant to trigger two cameras at the same time, but I imagine it will work to gang together two releases and give you longer length). I thought it might be a mini-phono plug, but that is too big. If you find out let me know, because I've wanted to extend my RM-UC1 to be able to capture birds at a feeder.

    Here is an ebay seller of the RM-UC1 clone and you can bareley see the extension cable on the side:

    I have a different version of the clone remote made by the same JCC company http://cgi.ebay.com/JJC-Remote-cord-...QQcmdZViewItem

    See the Multi Connector post in the keepers forum for pinouts and a photo of the inside of the above remote.
