18 Distinct Key Designs

From Robust Forceful Keys to Literal Unlocking Accessories

— May 10, 2014 — Art & Design
Whether you're someone who always forgets to lock the door or are always on the lookout for ways to bling out your locks, these key designs will provide a few pieces of inspiration. Guns, pop culture and ease-of-access are all things that people have thought of when trying to upgrade contemporary keys to something more distinct.

The acoustic guitar key for example is shaped like the instrument, so for anyone who plays this could be the ideal gift to yourself. The design actually does look like a real guitar, except in miniature form of course. Other designs include pot leaf-shaped keys for all of the stoners on your life. While the parents may not approve, this could be an appropriate present for a few friends who have been known to dabble in the stuff.
