How To Remove A Ring Doorbell

  • Step 1: Use the Ring Screwdriver (or a 6 point star head screwdriver) to unscrew the two screws at the bottom of the doorbell.
  • Step 2: Pull the doorbell up and out of the bracket.

Your Ring Doorbell should now be off your wall and ready to charge. It’s pretty easy to put it back on too – you just have to do the reverse of the above steps. However, if you are looking for something more permanent (maybe to move the entire doorbell) you will need to follow some more steps once the doorbell is off.

You will need to use a screwdriver to remove the screws in your bracket, and pull out any of the wall plugs that you have used to secure your bracket to the wall. You might then need to fill the wall with filler or silicone so that the wall isn’t damaged. Once you have the bracket and the doorbell itself off, you can easily move it to a new location or sell it if you are looking to do that!


The Ring Doorbell makes it easy to remove the unit itself or uninstall the entire device from your home, creating a pretty easy way to charge or move house with your Ring Doorbell.
