I'm attempting to remove this door handle with no success. I cannot figure out how to remove the plate on the front. It seems impossible to just pry it off.

How can I remove this door handle? Also, is anyone able to identify this door knob such that I can find its manual?

EDIT: I was able to remove the rose by turning it with channel locks. I was also able to determine that this is a Karcher door level/knob. However, I cannot remove the spindle and thus cannot remove the latch. How can I remove this spindle?

    The latch does not remove until the handle and mechanism removes. Are you working on the correct side of the door? One side is made tamper resistant and has no accessible fasteners. – Harper - Reinstate Monica Sep 25 '19 at 23:20
  • @Harper Both sides of the door seem very similar, hard to tell which side might be more accessible. Is there any photo I could take to provide better context? – Some Guy Sep 25 '19 at 23:28
  • It looks very similar to this handle from B&Q diy.com/departments/… – GamerGypps Sep 26 '19 at 10:02

In the hole in the bottom of the handle there is a screw, an allen or slotted, that has to be loosened to remove the handle. Then the other handle should pull out with the stem. The slide bolt then can be pulled out since you've already removed the screws.

  • I removed a screw in the handles on both sides, but they don't seem to budge. Is there supposed to be something deeper? – Some Guy Sep 25 '19 at 23:24
  • Try grabbing both handles and twisting them back and forth while trying to pull them apart. – JACK Sep 25 '19 at 23:33
  • also, see if you can turn the round silver covers – JACK Sep 25 '19 at 23:35
  • Twisting and pulling doesn't seem to do anything. If I turn it enough the whole mechanism turns, but obviously I don't want to do that as it may damage the door. – Some Guy Sep 26 '19 at 0:03
  • The round silver covers don't really turn either. They seem to be almost part of the whole thing. – Some Guy Sep 26 '19 at 0:03
