American Sign Language: "key" or "keys"


Hold an imaginary "key" between your thumb and index finger and twist it twice in a lock.


KEYS (side view version):


Signing Note: If you use just a single twist, the sign becomes a "verb" that means "lock" as in, "I locked the door."

LOCK / to lock / lock it


Sample sentence: YOUR KEYS, YOU LOSE BEFORE? = "Have you ever lost your keys?"
