open lift gate glass from inside?

i saw that a german member installed a switch to operate the glass from inside the trunk... perfect for camping. How would i go about making this work? Could it be done with a rocker switch? or does it need to be a push button?

I havnt looked into this, but being that the factory button is momentary, just enough to energize the relay to release the locking mechanism, a rocker switch could work as well but it would supply constant power which is not necessary because the window has the lift struts which immediately raise the window enough to prevent it from re-locking.

so a push button momentary would be your best bet to make sure you dont prematurely wear any parts out
