Annoying lockscreen sounds.

From time to time, my lock screen is exposed, and every time it's touched, either in my pocket or by incidental contact, it makes a little dinging noise. I want that to STOP. I want my locked phone to be completely silent, save ringtones and message tones. Is there a setting that will kill off this noise, or at least let me select what it is (think silent.wav)?

Thanks!

OK... I decided to take another look at it, and all wasn't what I thought it was.

Settings -> Sound & Notifications -> Advanced Settings -> More -> Sound Effects: You'll find this:

Notice this does not say "sounds while screen is locked," but "Play sound when you lock and unlock the screen." I thought this was for the click when you lock and then again when you unlock. It is, but it's also the sounds made BY the lock screen while locked.

Thanks!
