Having trouble with a pesky door knob. How do you take off an interior door knob? There is not a push button or other type of lock on the door. (It’s a bedroom door – but no lock.) I was able to pop off the decorative sleeve – but there appears to be a second plate under the sleeve. I thought I’d find a small slot to push in to pop off the knob – but no go.
I have never had a door knob I’ve not been able to pop off. I need to get this off so I can paint the door. (I know I can tape the knob and paint around it – but it never is as nice as doing the door in one nice sweep of the brush/roller.)
The people who owned the house before me was a lock smith – so I don’t know if he used something special or not. But I’m fixing to just rip off the knob and get a new one!
Any help/ideas would be appreciated.
