That comes out very small on my computer. I guess there are no 'fixing pins' on the rear? Don't know what to suggest apart from 'some sort of adhesive' - sorry that's not very helpful.

Am I correct in thinking the deadlock will be identified by locking the door and seeing the one which moves (not the deadlock)? Would further pressure move the deadlock and confirm it?

I guess easier in effort, but possible more 'distance push' on the button? Does the bar (that the plate is attached to 'rotate'?)
