Removal of the 3rd brake light section, need help

I'm looking to remove that section which is connected to the 3rd brake light inside the car. Im going in to get my windows tinted on tuesday and I want to make sure theres no chance they cut around it and instead will tint the entire window. I've looked everywhere and cant find any how to on it so does anyone know how I can remove that piece?
