Remove door knob - no screws visible ?


Thread the bushing back in toward the chassis to cover the O-ring. The bushing is probably hiding the poke hole for the knob retainer. No, the knob doesn't thread off no matter how strong you are. There is definitely a spring loaded retainer holding it on. In the at rest position, the retainer should be facing what would be the edge of the door.

really? why would you need to take the other knob off. can't you mount the piece in the door with only one knob off. its not like you need to slide it in backwards or something with both knobs off. i see no need to remove both knobs unless the mounting screws are behind the other one.

I did thread the bushing back on and indeed there is a poke hole in the bushing but I can't find the retainer anywhere on the spindle

Thanks for everyone's ideas but I am still stumped

I am thinking the poke hole is only for a way to hook the bushing so you can thread it on and off without marking the bushing with a tool.

maybe SPS-1 was correct but I don't think I have the same Knob as he does

Once you get the hole lined up properly with the retainer and release the retainer using the proper diameter paper clip or wire you'll laugh at how easy it was to remove the knob.

I think you are really over thinking the process. Having said that, I have had a few of these types of handle-sets that were harder to remove than others due to the retainer or shaft being bunged up through abuse or old age.

BTW, the threads you see on the shaft are for the escutcheon plate, not the handle.

MY problem is I can't find the retainer.

and yes its old and I would bet banged up a bit as I have been pushing on the thing with a small metal punch. ( maybe the punch is to large??)
