I’ve got a Schlage door handle that I want to remove so I can tighten it since it's loose on the wall, but I can't for the life of me figure it out. All the instructions online talk about these magical little pin holes you press and the handle comes sliding off. Mine has two little holes but pressing on them with nails does nothing. Any ideas?

  • maybe the nails do not depress the tabs far enough

  • Having recently dealt with a similar situation (loose knob), I found that the round portion that is supposed to go against the door needs to be pulled away from the door to expose the screws that need to be tightened. In my case, this thin cover plate was over thicker metal that made up the meat of the knob. I used a flat head screw driver to lever the cover off. I don't know if this is the case with this lock (so I will not add an answer).

  • I will also note that my lever had a small hex screw that I could loosen to remove the handle. In your photos, I think I see something aligned with the lever (not the two small holes you highlighted).

You might be able to rotate the plate and then slide it onto the handle. If that works, maybe you will see something to help get the handles off.
