Reversable remote on Atlas Code 83 WYE ?

Finally started putting the track pieces together but ended up with a right remote and and #4 LH turnout ? I got the right amount of remotes specified in Atlas's track plan of 5 LH & 5 RH . Atlas's site says the WYE will take either a LH or RH remote which looking at the back of the WYE is correct as it has the place for either remote to snap into. The problem comes into hand that the "T" section is only on one side of the turnout for the remote to connect too. Is the "T" piece reversible ? If it is I can use the last remote on it that doesn't fit the LH turnout and the one currently on the WYE on the LH #4 turnout. If not I will need to purchase another remote.

Pop the points out of the throwbar, remove the throwbar, insert it from the opposite side, reinstall the points.

Thanks Paul. Should have that mentioned on the back of the Wye packaging. I didn't want to ruin the Wye. Much appreciate for the reply !!
