There's no way you're angling a regular shafted screwdriver in there to
adequately tighten screws.
One could undo the catch that limits the angle of swing, but I still don't
expect it's going to swing far enough to get the frame out of the way, let
alone the PCBs and motors still in the way.

See? It's impossible to mount it without severe danger! In an effort to
promote public safety, just send all your 7970E's to me and I will keep them
somewhere that no one can get hurt on them! ;)
