Door Knob Removal in About a Minute!

Door knob removal in about a minute
I have replaced all of the mismatched door knobs and hinges on my basement doors. I had no idea how to remove a door knob without visible screws so after ruining a perfectly good door I did a little research. I've since learned how and want to share how easy it is.
While changing the doorknobs and hinges in the basement, I ran into some trouble removing the door knobs with no visible screws holding them together.
See that little button, it needs to be depressed with a small screwdriver or something, you can then pull on the handle and it will come off.
With a flat head screwdriver, find the indent in the face plate and slide it underneath and gently pull up around the perimeter. It may pop right off or it could be stubborn and make you talk nice to it. It will come off, I assure you.
I have more videos on how to replace the hinges and tips for hanging a door all by yourself.

      @Valerie So glad! I had so many door knobs to replace, I knew I had to find the "trick". It really is easier than I thought.
