    I have a door where there is no key - have drilled cylinder and unlocked the door but there is no euro cylinder securing screw beneath the faceplate and no hole for one - does this mean that the fixing screw is accessed from the glazing channel - have changed dozens of cylinders previously but I have never come across this - it is a single leaf conventional door so no mullion or meeting stile to confuse - any advise appreciated cheers from happy harry

    without a picture i can't be sure , but I would guess that when the door is unlocked and all the locking points retracted you will see a small hole in the locking plate in line with the cylinder, If so it is an allen key to undo . It is not uncommon for the rail behind the locking plate ( that operates the mechanism ) to slip and hide the hole, so if its not visible, operate the handle up and down and see if a hole appears....
