Default Tap adjustment question

I've got a tri-tap and went to remove the tap from the tower to do a cleaning. I didn't break it but the piece that the tap attaches to (that is attached to the tower) is loose and I don't know how to tighten it.
Is there a way to remove the very top of the tower......the round cap that covers the tower to tighten the post? I don't want to have to unscrew the tower and remove the hoses to tighten it. Luckily, it doesn't leak so I can use it until I figure this out.
The arrow is pointing to the area that is loose. Sorry for the crappy pic.

The cap on the top of the tower should be able to lift off. They are not normally held down by anything other than gravity. This gives you access to the shanks (the part that is loose).
On the inside of the tower will be a nut to tighten the shank back down to the tower. You will probably need to get a tower nut wrench due to the tight space inside the tower, here is an example.

Good luck!

Tap the edge of cap up to remove use a small piece of wood so you wont scratch chrome. Inside you need to remove foam and you will see the shank and nuts just tighten
