Storm Door deadbolt removal

This pertains to a Pella storm Door w/ deadbolt lock:

I removed the handle assembly and door lock, but when it came time to remove the deadbolt i had a problem. The screws on strike plate from the edge of the door are removed but the plate itself won't budge. There are no other screws holding it in place that i see. Is there something i'm missing before i go commando on this. I'm pretty sure that once the plate is removed, all i have to do is pull the clip pins to get the deadbolt assembly out or am i wrong? Any help would be appreciated?

Once you remove the middle screw in the plate, the deadbolt knob will pull out the inside. Once that is removed, the assembly will pull from the door.

All of the screws including the center one has been removed but the plate still won't budge. Is there anything from the inside of the assembly holding it secured?

Pella uses several different types of locks... I wonder which one it is? Are you still having difficulty?

Have you pulled the lock turning thingy out of the side of the door?

I always hate it when the original poster doesn't post back. It makes you wonder if he ever got it out! LOL

If the handle and square bar has been removed, and the tumbler and thumbturn have been extracted, there is no reason why the latch and deadbolt would not just come straight out of the mortise. there is nothing else holding it in.

I'm guessing the OP figured it out, since it's not that complicated.
