Help removing Pella door handle

A home owner from Massachusetts says:
Hi Tom from Swisco,

I bought a new replacement latch from Swisco for my older style Pella screen door. I got the single screw out of the inside door handle but that doesn't seem to release the handle. It's still attached at the bottom.

I don't see another screw and it doesn't seem to lift up or to the side... What am I missing??

Thanks very much!

The handle is held into the door at the bottom with a type of plug. You should be able to just pull it out once the screw is removed.
