Okay, I feel stupid here. But I can't get this top closed for anything!! It is a hinged top of sorts. The hinge should slide down the back of the table in a long groove. But there is no sliding, there isn't a release of any sort on the table back or underside - can't figure it out. Tried spraying some WD40 on it, didn't help. I have posted a couple of pictures below so if anyone out there has a table that closes in this way - maybe you can let me know the trick to getting the top closed? The 3rd picture is the wood thing that comes out and supports the table when it is opened - it should slide all the way back in. But - this is as closed as I can get it!
