Exclamation Help with hinges

I am in the middle of hanging my door back in my bathroom. I bought new hinges because I could not get the paint off the old ones, but this one does not seem to have the pin that comes out. There is a small hole at the bottom, but I stuck a screwdriver up there and could not push it out. Is this something I'm doing wrong, or do they just not come apart???
The package says 3 1/2" 5/8" radius round corner hinge. Made by Brainerd (085 03 2383).

The small hole at the bottom will normally accept a #8 or #6 finish nail. Drive the nail into the hole and the pin should come out.

It is possible that you have captive pin hinges, but not likely for interior doors. Captive pin hinges have pins that cannot be removed.

Hope this helps.

I use a 1/8" drift pin to pop the hinge pins out.
