A skeleton key (also known as a passingkey) is either a key that has been altered in such a way as to bypass the wards placed inside a warded lock or an American term for a lever or “bit” type key. The term derives from the fact that the key has been reduced to its essential parts.

The term “skeleton key”, in a more general sense, is also sometimes used in reference to a key or similar object capable of opening any lock regardless of make or type.
