yea your right >.< your gonna have to desolder the board to get the switches out.
PCB mounted is fine, its plate-mounted that's the issue. On the worse note, your Ducky Shine (mine as well) is dual PCB plate-mounted. That means that it does have pins and also must be desoldered to remove. There should be a video online of someone disassembling their Ducky YoTD so check that out. One thing is that with the newer ones, they put a sticker over one of the holes to get access to screw so you void your warranty, but that's only good for a year anyway.
If you plan to go this route, make sure to pick up a decent soldering iron (Weller is a great brand), good electronic solder that's thin (less heat transfer to other heat sensitive parts), and also a good desoldering iron. I've heard the radioshack ones are decent, they are about $15, but you can always spring for a $200+ one with an electronic vacuum pump lol.
