I have looked behing the knob but I can't see anything that looks like a plastic clip. Also, does it pull all the way out or just partially out?

The model # XXXXX XXXXX Also, when I look behind the knob I can a part where it looks like a metal band goes around and narrows down on each end where it meets. Is this the area where the clip is? Is the clip usually clear or is it dark? I appreciate your patience, Bryan.
