installed garbage disposal - dishwasher drain plug

I had someone replaced and installed a new garbage disposal. He forgot to knock the drain plug out on the garbage disposal for the dishwasher.

It appears that all I have to do is get a screw driver and give it a tap with a hammer without taking the garbage disposal off. Could someone confirm this?

Its alot more trouble for taking the whole garbage disposal off the sink and placing it back since I dont have the neccessary tools and sealants to put it back in place without leaking.

Yes that is al you have to do. Just make sure the piece doesn't go inside.

It's relatively trouble free to just call the guy back who didn't finish the installation properly.
