Euro lock with key left in and still open from outside
Is it possible to buy a euro lock that can have the key left in and still open it by the key from the outside? I don't want to use a thumb turn lock

Yes, best option is to go to a good locksmith and ask for a cylinder with an emergency/convenience feature this is the name for the feature that enables the lock to open with a key in the opposite side, the abus e60 is one of them, a lot of the time ones online won't state whether the lock has this feature hence easier to go to a dedicated shop where they can help.
