Default Loose deadbolt bezel

I have a Stanley, French door with an Arrow (?!) lockset and deadbolt. The
deadbolt (DB) is loose and the bezel will turn but not tighten. On the
interior side of the DB are two steel pins which are below the level of the
brass colored bezel. I tried prying the interior side bezel as well as
turning but nothing has changed. Are any of you familiar with this
construction and how to correct it? The last time this happened I called a
locksmith who repaired it while I was away. It can't be that hard but I'm
lost. As always, TIA!
Chuck

If it is the Arrow I am thinking of, the inside rose has a disk that turns
when you turn the inside key and when you turn the key the screw holes will
be exposed. A #1 Phillips can then be inserted in the holes to snug up the
screws.

If you are not part of the solution, you are not dissolved in the solvent.

Chuck -
I can't figure out what you are talking about.
Any chance you can point me to a picture?
Put one on some website and post the link or find a good picture already
on the web.
