Removing double keyhole cylinder deadbolt with no visible screw holes on either side of door.

How do I remove a double keyhole cylinder deadbolt with no visible screw holes on either side of the door?  Bought a new house and changing out the locks.  Front and back doors have deadbolts with keyholes on both sides, cylindrical style.  There's no visible screws on the deadbolts.  How do I take off so I can replace with new ones?

What brand is it?  Can you post a picture of both sides of the door, perferrably from a couple of angles?

 

Generically, some locksets use a trim plate to cover the screws.  Look on the underside or where lock meets the door for a small hole or little groove.  It will be on the inside of the door.  Push into the hole with a straightened paperclip or gently pry with a small screwdriver in the groove.  That should pop off the cover and reveal the screws holding the two halves of the lock together.

Thanks!  I'll try what you said.  It's a Schlage deadbolt just like the picture.  As you can see, there's no screws visible to unscrew.

Hi, I have a one of those lori super guard Jimmy Proof Door Locks. The key broke off in the lock and I wanted to take the lock off my door, but there are no visible screws.
