    The flush valves, both the flapper and the tower can be remove with a Philips head screwdriver.

    The tower that lifts and drops, with the chain attached rotates out counterclockwise from the flush valve.

    The securing blocks pivot inward for removal and inserting, and then swing out to hold the flush valve to the bowl.
    A Philips head screwdriver is all you need. The picture here doesn't show the rubber seal that sits in the groove there.

    If you're removing a flapper on an existing toilet, sometimes a box knife is good for cutting off the rubber flapper, being careful to not harm the pins.
