Ghost Key Power Description
: Allows the user to become a ghost when used in conjunction with the Ghost Door. Upon passing through the doorway, a living creature's body will fall dead backwards onto the floor of Keyhouse
(not forward through the door to the exterior of the house), but their spiritual essence will take on a ghostly form. To return to life, the ghost must pass through the Ghost Door again in order to wake up in their body again. If, however, the Ghost Door (with Ghost Key) is closed while the user is a ghost, they become a ghost permanently.
Upon becoming a ghost, the user gains other benefits not directly imparted by the key or door, but imparted by the nature of a ghostly essence.

gave it to him with a very oddly phrased message about its importance. Tyler
wears it on his baseball cap. Rendell
also gave the Anywhere Key to Kinsey
so perhaps all the Locke children have secretly been given a key.
