So this handle is designed to come off if you grab the handle and yank straight to the left with a hard quick sudden jerk. Now I do want to mention that sometimes installers will remove the handles to get it through the door way on your house. When they re-install the door handles sometimes they put the handles on upside down so if that's the case then the handle will yank straight to the right in order to remove it.
