Installed My Backup Camera

So I found a semi-good deal on a backup camera. Chrome Hitch Cover with a built in CCD Camera, not the crappy CMOS. $48 shipped. Surprisingly gives a very good picture for less than $50. Only problem is I have to unplug the camera if i want to use the hitch (but I rarely tow anything with this truck). So I'll have to do a little surgery and add a connector at the back. That's another project for the future. I'll get some pics when I go back outside, it's just too bloody hot out there

How hard would it be to take that cam out of it's housing? Kind of defeats my purpose of wanting to use it to hitch up if it's in my receiver.
