Mobile Home Door Knob Removal...


I live in a 10 year old double-wide trailer. Two of the bedrooms have dummy door handles, of which I was going to change out for locking handles. Problem is: door handle caps cannot be removed. they can be loosened but do not come off b/c of the door handle. i see screws but cannot get to them with-out cutting the caps off and ruining the old handles. are these handles ever supposed to be removed?

There are a few different styles but they all remove.
Can you post a picture of your problem? That almost always helps here.

Not familiar with that style myself, but it looks like there are screws there. There may also be a 'release' tab holding the knob to the shaft that may be released using a flathead screwdriver.

I have see that style before and what you have to do is slide the plate back to oringal spot and look for very small indent tab and get slotted screwdriver and push the indent tab in and it will come out then you can able do the rest.

Merci.

This pic shows how I get mine off. Yours look like they may be the same. Take that little set screw out and it slides right off.
