(1260) Review: MultiPick Elite Bogota-7 and Tension Kit


LockLab is Fan funded!  Help pay for stuff to review, break and talk trash about, and maybe even give away when we’re done.  Join the Tribe!

looking for the tools used in LockLab videos?

My vises are made by Panavise, a U.S. Company.  The one with the wide jaws is the model 350.  The smaller one is the model 301. Both have the 312 Base mount – www.panavise.com



  1. You’re teasing me with the give-away’s. If you’re going to give away the rakes & tensioners, May as well include the lock too! “You’re the Barometer” I use for comparing my skill set, so I’d like to see if I’m raking that lock nearly as well as you! If I win that is 🙂

  2. Hey Bill, love the videos, love the reviews. Is there anywhere to find a listing of picks? Thinking of a chart with profiles of the picks, their names, and general purpose. If you know of one can you add that as a link sometime please?

  3. Bill I love your shows! I'm a seasonal worker and I have been watching all winter on the PS4 app but you can't read or write to the comments section. Watching the picking part got me so intrigued that I picked every lock in my house with just 2 small pieces of broken street cleaner brushes that I picked up for cleaning engine parts, I just recently found a 25mm piece metal almost the size of a sheet of paper, so far I have made 2 double ended picks by eye, one small hook, a w, a bogota, and a city rake(sort of), and surprisingly they work! I live in an apartment building so all the work was done on the couch, it took a week to cut, dremel , file and sand to get both to a mirror finish by hand, so not easy work to do outside of a workshop! You have got my wish list up to $300 at the Lock Pick Canada site! Stop making me want to spend more money!! lol Keep up the great work!

  4. Hey everyone, here to ask you guys for some advice. I have been trying to pick this padlock and no matter how much tension i apply the pins just wont stay at the sheer line. Im a noob at this and i would really appreciate your advice.

  5. Great 🐈 cat hair review Bill and, some pretty nice Multipick Bogota picks too lol 😂 Love the etching on these, makes for a nice looking kit. Also, like that they're serial numbered picks, so you can order just the picks you want (should you be on a budget) and, just need to replace the one pick, rather than a whole set. A fair enough tensioning set as well and overall, not badly priced. Great little video buddy and, as always thanks for the heads up on this great two bits of kit. 😁👍

  6. Any thoughts on the best set to get for beginners? I'm looking for a set with a decent amount of rakes and standard picks to get started. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

  7. Nice looking set, just getting into picking myself so looking to get a good set to start out with one way or another and this would be a nice start especially for the tension set.

  8. The springy shutter lock tensioner is useful for fitting into the top of the keyways
    also. Bought a cheapy pickset and found that springy tensioner perfect for a lot of
    locks. Holds itself into place mostly. Watching these to hopefully one day build a
    challenge lock.
