HELP! I have weird door hinges.

I'm trying to remove the hinge pins from this door but they seem to be double sided and the whole screwdriver/hammer thing isn't working. These are literally the only ones like this in my whole apartment and I don't know what to do.

Welcome to the forums!

Take a stiff putty knife [screwdriver may work] and hammer it under the top of the pin. Once the pin comes up a little you can change the angle and finish driving the pin out.

Use a pin punch and hammer through the hole in the top photo to get it started.
