The Spare Key,[1] also known as the Lon Lon Ranch Key,[2] is an item in The Minish Cap.

Location and Uses

When Link visits Lon Lon Ranch, he discovers that Talon lost his key and cannot get inside his House, leaving his only Spare Key inside and locking both him and Malon out.[3][4] Link must enter Talon and Malon's House while Minish-sized in order to retrieve the Spare Key, which is inside a Jar. After showing the key to Talon, he will thank the young hero, allowing him to pass through his House whenever he needs to reach Lake Hylia.[5][6] This also allows Malon to go to Hyrule Town and start selling Lon Lon Milk for 100 Rupees.[7]
