Remove Your Door Knob
- Locate the hole underneath the doorknob shaft. You should see a tiny slot or hole.
- Push the tip of a narrow screwdriver into the hole.
- Tug on the knob and it will slide right off.
How do you remove a door handle that has no screws showing?
If you can’t see any screws, don’t worry, they’re there. But you’ll have to take the knob off first. There should be a small latch near the base of the knob or handle, probably on the exterior side of the door. Push this latch in, and pull the handle off the door.
How do you take off a front door handle?
Hold the doorknob as tight against the interior mechanism as possible and slip your flathead screwdriver beneath the lever. Push the lever in the opposite direction from what you used to remove the knob. Slide it all the way until it can’t go any farther. At this point the doorknob should be locked back in place.
Can’t take door handle off?
Depress a button with a paperclip or thin tool if there’s no screw. If you don’t see a screw head inside the slot, straighten a paperclip or grab a thin, pointed tool, such as an awl. Insert the paperclip or tool into the slot as you gently pull the knob away from the door.
