How to pull the dial off a dimmer switch?

Not sure how to pull the dial off this dimmer switch so that I can put a cover plate over it.
I don't want to yank it hard in case it breaks, anyone recognize this and how to get it off?

I don't know how else to remove it besides yanking it. Why not completely remove the dimmer, if you aren't going to use it?

The knob just pulls off. I have 2 of these old dimmers in my house.

Just force pull it off. If it breaks you can buy replacement knobs.
