@pokeefe Thanks for reaching out!

Typically, all that is required is for you to pull the bottom piece out of the end of the pole. It may take a bit of work, depending on how firmly it is stuck in there. Be very careful using pliers or a vise to stabilize the pole because you could damage the pole. Perhaps @rdalton6 could weigh in here?
