The Tank Hatch Key was a key used to unlock the hatch entrance of the Contessa's tanks.


Sly had to pickpocket two of these keys from the Contessa to gain access to one of her tanks,[1] which he and Bentley later used to break into cell block D and free Murray.[2]

Stealing these keys were tough, as the Contessa had bodyguards by her side. Sly had to either lure them away from her, or take them out quietly in order to steal the keys from her. Along with the keys was the tank patrol schedule, which he and Bentley also needed.
