The Keys of the Locke family are a wide variety of magical keys that are found hidden throughout the Locke family home, Keyhouse Manor. The original Keys were crafted by Benjamin Locke during the eighteenth-century Revolutionary War. After Benjamin, many more keys were made by others, including: Harland and Tyler Locke, even Hans Riffel.
During the war in 1775, soldiers found and opened the Black Door in the Drowning Caves, thereby releasing demons. In order to seal the door shut, Benjamin crafted a padlock and a key from Whispering Iron — which he claimed had been tempting him. He later crafted numerous other keys, so did many of the Lockes that followed him; these keys remained with the Locke family and were often used by them.
Note: ⸸ indicates that the key solely appears in the Netflix series; they are not mentioned nor appear in the graphic novels.
These keys have not made an appearance in the official comics but appear in merchandise, promotional tie-ins, and/or non-canon materials.
These keys can be seen in art but were unused. Note that the names are not official.

Locks that hint at potential Keys Edit
These are locks that are seen in the art that could hint at the existence of potential Keys. Names are not official.
- Mailbox Key (lock seen in Dog Days). The lock can be seen on the mailbox that is shaped like Keyhouse and possesses the Keyhouse logo. Artwork made by Gabriel Rodriguez has confirmed its debut for World War Key.
- Radio Key (lock seen in Dog Days). A keyhole shape can be seen on the old fashioned radio that the two sons of Mary Locke listen to with their dog.
- Stained Glass Key (lock seen in Omega 2). Assuming the keyhole on the Glass Ceiling is an actual keyhole and not just an image. Much like how the keyhole for the Giant Key was also a glass window.
- Cat Key (lock seen in Small World). A lock can be seen on the collar worn by Jean and Mary Locke's pet cat, Tiberius.
- Snow Globe Key (lock seen In Pale Battalions Go #1). In this panel revealed by Gabriel Rodriguez via Twitter. To the left of Fiona Locke on the desk; there's what appears to be a Snow Globe with a miniature Keyhouse inside. At the base of the Globe (although it's hard to make out) there appears to be a keyhole/lock.
- Saturn Clock Key (lock seen In Pale Battalions Go #1). In this panel revealed by Gabriel Rodriguez via Twitter. What appears to be a tambour clock with the symbol of Saturn on its right hand side, there's an Infinity Symbol where the 12 should be. The key in the clock doesn't appear to be the Timeshift Key.
