    Door handle loose ( no release button? )

    hi all

    im having an issue with dismantling a door handle to re tighten it. the door handle has no screws so should have a release button but inside the only visible hole appears to be no button but a flat head hole deeper inside. ive tried to push things inside treating it like a button and also a flat head screwdriver to turn the inside hole but neither seem s to work.

    anyone have any ideas?

    ill try get some pictures just need to find a way to photograph it properly.

    What type of door handle is it? interior door or exterior? Pictures would be great but if it's an interior door with circle type handle it might have a small Allen key to undo it

    more than likely some sort of grub screw holding a cover on

    neko you see that outer ring in silver that should pop off using s o something like a small screwdriver , under it should be screws

    that slotted screw in the handle should hold the handle on too

    i tried that too it seemed very stuck on and i didnt want to force it to much, ill try again

    whats on the end of that grub screw in your hand , the end we cant see in your pic ??

    once that grub screw is out of the handle completely tap the shoulder of the handle with something like a large plastic screwdriver handle a few times , they do stick because theyve been on for years

    On my handle the larger circular cap - your picture shows some white paint on it - has a screw thread. You won't be able to pry it open. Twist it anti-clockwise.

    ​Your a legend. The cap is off now I just need to navigate the rest!

    there were two golden flat head poles in there and i can only get 1 out.... they dont have threads it seems. need to suction the thing out hah.

    neko have you tried tapping the handle once the grub screws out ?

    that worked too hah.

    turns out the paint (whoever painted the door didnt remove the handle first) held the whole thing down fairly firmly.

    pried it all off popped screws and inside was a hex hole to tighten the handle.

    thanks to all who contributed you have saved a headache!

    you may want to soak the outer ring in brush cleaner to get the paint off
