Question about Garden
The exterior faceplate is not the thing that fastens to the door, it just supports the lock cylinder and covers the hole in the wood. Inside the door the cylinder has a thin plate with two screws going from the inner door surface into the back of the part you put the key into. Removing the big nightlatch block you will see a metal tang on the inside sticking out. The two screws will be just to the left and right of the tang and so you can draw the lock cylinder inward from there, which will squeeze the outside faceplate bezel into the front door surface. These are great locks, I am installing one from the 1940's which even opens up to let you reverse the bolt angle and make the door open outwards if you want to for big industrial shop doors.
