Well, in this phrase you need to know that Schlüssel is masculine (<-- der Schlüssel) and becomes den Schlüssel since it's singular, masculine, accusative (<-- the direct object here). "das Schlüssel" doesn't exist:

Singular Plural
Nominativ der Schlüssel die Schlüssel
Genitiv des Schlüssels der Schlüssel
Dativ dem Schlüssel den Schlüsseln
Akkusativ den Schlüssel die Schlüssel
