After several hours I've been unable to remove my Kwikset deadbolt eventhough its unscrewed. There is NO set screw on the knob. I've even tried pliers to separate from the deadbolt without success. Its likely I'm missing a simple step, but I can't figure it out.enter image description here

  • Have you tried turning the latch to a different position then pulling? I know their knobs are like that where you need to turn the doorknob before you can pull it out. Sep 6 at 16:38
  • Thanks for the comment! In short, yes, I have. The bolt still moves freely when knob is turned eventhough its unscrewed.

  • Its fixed. I used two screw drivers to pry it off slowly. Only took 5 hrs to figure out. 🤦‍♂️
