How Keys Work: What happens inside when we turn the key


Ever stopped to think how keys work when you’re opening a locked door?

This gif accurately shows how a key matches a lock. You can even see before the key enters that the lock is built to allow keys only with matching keyway grooves (the lines down the length of the key). This is why sometimes a key will enter a lock but won’t turn.
