Accidentally got Docking Port Sr on backwards. Any easy solutions?

Question

I've gotten a Sr size Docking Port facing the wrong way. Before I deorbit the whole thing and start again, I need to check something:

If I can fly it up, can an engineer detach a new Sr Size docking port from one ship, and reattach it to another. For that matter, if I get an engineer up there, can I get him to reverse the docking port sr itself?

 

EDIT: Never mind. Tried it myself. It can be carried. Took some juggling, but I saved the mission.

It can grip it by the husk!

 

Anyway, I'm glad that worked out for you.  The orientation of the Sr. docking port (and correcting it if it's put on backwards) has been a point of contention since ... it was introduced, actually.  For all I know, it's one of the reasons KAS was developed.  It's nice to see that stock in-flight assembly has offered a way to deal with that.

Found that the small octagonal struts are perfect for putting way stuff you can not surface mount, second very nice part is the small ladder segment, an kerbal can carry it and put down to have someplace to work.

It's not a question of where he GRIPS it! A forty-five kilogram Kerbal can't carry a 200 kilogram Sr. Docking Port!

Oh... wait... he did? Oh. Nevermind!
