If you have a flexible measuring tape, like one that you can get at a fabric shop, you can measure the circumference. Then divide that by Pi (3.14159) and that should give you the diameter. You can also use a piece of string (non-stretch) and wrap it around and mark it, then measure with a ruler or measuring tape.

depending on how your tower collapses you can get a measurement where it breaks... I can pull down one of the side legs and get a measurement as the mount has an L cut and I can easily measure straight across

Wrap a strip of paper around the tower leg. Mark where it touches itself. Then flatten it out and measure. Divide by 3.1416. Congratulations, you now know the diameter!

Cheap Plastic Caliper from Harbor Freight for 99 cents I think it was and I used the dang thing all the time!
