Item #: SCP-005

Object Class: Safe

Laconic Containment Procedures: It is not dangerous, but required one or more Level-4 Personnel to approve removal from its containment.

Laconic Description: This is a key that can open any lock, ever, anywhere, as long as the user knows that the object is a lock. If the user does not know it's a lock, SCP-005 works about half the time anyway.

Additional Context: SCP-005 was posted by a deleted account in June 2008, making it one of the oldest on the wiki.

It is inspired by the idea of a "Skeleton Key", which is the term used for a master key that can open many locks.
