I had the same tower.

Loosen the lower knob, see red circle in pic. Allow tower to fold towards the bow. I used a towel or 3í tallish pole to hold the tower just off of the upholstery.

If you pull the upper knob, you will also need an allen wrench. PIA.

I undo all 4 and slightly rethread them back in on the outside so I don't lose them and just fold forward. 1 minute 1 man job.

I wish this was that easy. The lower knobs were broken and the studs seized. Been using the two nut method to slowly remove them. Itís pretty bad.
