What is an arrow key? The Postal Service defines an arrow key as:

A distinctively shaped key used by carriers to open mail-receiving receptacles such as street collection boxes and panels of apartment house mailboxes equipped with an arrow lock. The bow (top of the key) is stamped with an image of an arrow below “U.S.P.S.” Arrow keys are accountable property and are subject to strict controls.
