This door is secured, sir!

I've got Weslock doorknobs in my new house... which I can remove easily
, except for the ones with privacy latches, like the bathroom doors. The privacy latch is a little button on the side of the door with the collar that's supposed to rotate so that you can access the screws underneath it. How do I get it out of my way?

Obviously, I need to either remove the privacy button, or I need to get it set deep enough that the collar can rotate over top of it and I can access the screws underneath it.
I've tried unscrewing it from the far side of the pin, and I've tried pushing it in, pulling it out, rotating it with pliers, and pretty much everything else without any success.
Suggestions? It's probably ridiculously simple, but it's sure got me.
