To take down the TV is a large effort.  I would prefer an adapter.

Is there a device that can take the HDMI output of an Apple TV 3 and convert it to component?

I have heard that there are few devices that can go from HDMI to component, and that if there is one, it should be powered.

Thanks.

HDMI to component is possible, however you need to consider that Apple TV 3 is HDCP compliant. Therefore, the HDMI converter needs to be HDCP compliant.

Be careful which one you purchase, some of the products make specific references to the 3rd generation Apple TV.
