Removing Old Door Knob/Fixture


I can't figure out how to remove door knobs from an old door knob fixture. Images of the knob/fixture can be seen in the URLS below.

From what I see there is no latch to engage to remove the knob. You will see a little hole in the shaft that connects to the knob with a little hole in it. I have tried putting a paper clip in it to see if it engages anything without luck.

Anyone have any experience with this kind of hardware or any thoughts?

Looks to me like that set screw requires an allen (hex key) wrench, but someone stripped the corners out a bit.

It's a set screw as suggest but be carefull it may be metric.
Make sure the wrench you use fits perfect. If not you'll just round it off.

Thanks, ya'll hit it on the head. Can't believe I missed that. Was able to remove the knobs and other components after reading your replies. Thanks again.
