Usually this is quite an easy problem, just open the cupboard or drawer the knob is connected to, take a star screw driver and tighten the screws of the knob from the inside, this should solve your problem.

Depends on type of hinge, If it swings back open after you closed it then either the cupboard is not level (old style hinge)...
Or the spring inside hinge is bad/broken and not holding it closed. If the door opens back just a bit (1/2 inch or so) see if hinge has adjustable screws.
Remove the knob by pushing in the small pin on the edge of the knob shaft. Then use a screwdriver in the small inset on the edge of the handle cover to pop the cover off. Tighten the 2 screws under the cover, replace parts.
The knob part has a small slot on bottom side near the brass plate. Get on the floor and look up. Locate slot. Take a photo so you can enlarge what you see.
There is a metal tongue that is clicked down into the slot. This holds the knob from coming off. Use small screwdriver to push up the tongue at the same time you are pulling to remove the knob.
Once the knob starts coming out, you have to pull screwdriver out of the way. Knob comes off. Brass plate covers the screws. Use screwdriver on edge of brass plate to remove. Notice brass place has small indents where a screwdriver can fit.
Once plate and knob are off, you have access to screws. Take photos as you go so everything goes back smoothly.
When putting knob back, the tongue might have to be pushed so knob goes on. Push knob into place until you hear tongue click into slot.
Hello there: the first thing that you need to do is use your tool if you have it and on the door knob look for a flat silver slot and press in on it and the door know will come off. Next use the pointed tip and look at the plate that covers the door hole and you will see a small hole put the point in the hole and just like a wrench turn it to the left to loosen it just like a nut and it will loosen up now just spin it off ond there will be a plate under neath this top plate so take this off. next you will be able to push the know out and this will release the lock assembly Now you are done this is a very easy door knob to work on ok? just replace the new door knob following the instructions ok? I really hope that this has helped you out ok best regards michael
I agree with your Hacksaw method. Very easy and very fast. You are going to want to replace the knob anyway so this does not happen again. Just Hacksaw that knob as close to the door as you can without damaging the door. From there you are on your way to access to the parts of the lock. Now you can replace that knob and never have this trouble again!!!! One less headache in Life......Hope this helps you ........Joe
It's actually quite simple, all you need is a drill and the right size or drill bit.
Choose a drill bit a about the size of the hole required, if you are not sure, choose a smaller size, it's easier to make a hole bigger.
Take apart the old knobs, from the inside of the cupboard, use the drill make the old holes bigger.
