Flush Round Sliding Door Pull Removal


Anyone have a really good technique for removing those round flush closet sliding door pulls?

I am thinking or either drilling out center so I can get mini pry bar in and lightly pry away from recessed area or driving screw into it and using pliers. Use a thin razor blade to separate paint from edge first with either attempt.

Any other ideas that have worked?

Doors were recently painted and painter somehow scratched them they are ORB finish so I am not sure I can touch them up. These have the barb no small nails holding them in. They went in fairly easily with just a push with my hand.

thanks

Nail set into the barb should be a good start.

So your trashing them and replacing them right?


I like your approach, otherwise a sturdy spackle knife and hammer to collapse it inward

Nothing beats slipping with the razor and leaving a 2" gash....

Glad you avoided it.
