Thanks Guys

Thank You so much for the answer about these door locks.

Just moved into a house and was half way to replacing the door lock when I got stuck.

Gainesborough knobs - Sheesh!

Turning the trim plate counterclockwise worked for me. Yay! (I wore a vinyl glove.) Both sides came off the same way.

The knob has been half off for a year. The door rattled. I began making adjustments, but could not completely remove the knob--until today. Put it all back together and the door still rattles, but at least we don't have to open and shut it for guests with a folded up paper towel!

Making out the brand name was difficult but worth it. Other websites insisted I must depress the missing detent!

Thank you!

Thank you

I too had a problem with the Gainsborough and my sister in law has a house full of them. With some non-slip matting and the "counter-clockwise" knowledge it is such an easy job to get to the hidden hardware.
