Bogota π

SerePick is showing off a new product that they may bring to market soon called Bogota π. SerePick has created other Bogota sets in the traditional pick form factor like the Titan Flats set. However, these are around 3.14159265359” (hence the name) which makes them very compact.

The Bogota π set includes a Hook, Double, Triple and Quad Bogota along with a flat double-sided tensioner. Currently, only a few sample sets have been created. They will hopefully go into production soon.

SHOT Show E&E Kit from SerePick

Oh no! You’re pinned down by a talkative product rep who is bending your ear about how awesome the Taurus Judge is. Its time to put your SHOT Show E&E plan into action and this SHOT Show exclusive, custom kit from SerePick just might help (if the Taurus rep has physically restrained you in some way which I doubt they would, but still… you never know).

This kit will only be available at the SHOT Show and you are going to have to track down Matt at SerePick to get one. They will cost $50 or you can potentially barter for them (I suggest good bourbon or maybe comfortable walking shoes, those would be worth a mint on the show floor).

The kit consists of a compact plastic case and several other useful items…

  • Bogota Nano Entry Toolset
  • Quick Stick X2
  • EZ Decoder X2
  • Polymer Universal Handcuff Key X2
  • Steel Split Pawl Handcuff Shim X2
  • Glue Dots X2

You will have to add your own pocket change because the dime in the photo is just there for scale. This kit is tiny.

SerePick Bogota Nano Entry Tools

Every time SerePick makes the Bogota Entry Sets smaller, I think there is no way that the new smaller version can be as useful as the already compact full-size version and every time I try them, I am amazed at how little they actually give up to the full size set.

Nano Titan Bogota Entry Tools

SerePick is outdoing themselves this time. The new Nano Bogota Entry Tools will be available shortly. These things are TINY. They are made from titanium so they should be very, very discreet. You should be able to stow these just about anywhere.

These should be available at SerePick.com soon.

Review: SEREPICK Entry Cards

SEREPICK Entry Cards will look familiar to those of you who have followed JTT for a while. We have already reviewed the titanium versions of these cards that are exclusively available at ITS Tactical and Vigilant Gear. Titanium has certain benefits for this application but lower cost isn’t one of them. So, if you have been looking for a way to get the same functionality at a lower price, these new stainless versions may be just the ticket.

SEREPICK Entry Cards in Cases


The SEREPICK Entry Cards are basically, complete lock bypass toolsets that are contained withing a credit card sized piece of stainless steel. They are made from stainless steel and are available in 2 versions: V1 and V2.

V1 contains 2 complete sets of Bogota Entry Tools: 2 Bogota Rakes, 2 Bogota Single Hook Picks, and 2 tension wrenches. These are all you need to bypass most locks and you essentially get two uses out of a single card.

V2 is for more advanced users and expands on the capabilities of the V1 by providing a single, more complete set including a Bogota Single, Double, Triple, Sabana and traditional hook along with a double sided tension wrench.

Both versions come with a clear plastic sleeve to protect the card and the contents of your wallet.

Observations from Use

I have reviewed many Bogota Entry Toolsets in the past and I am always amazed at the shallow learning curve that they provide. These sets allow beginners to bypass locks with very minimal instruction. As the user becomes more practiced and better understands the mechanics of what is actually happening in the keyway, they start to find that locks can be bypassed with increasing speed and ease. You can’t replace practice but you will likely have some luck with these sets even if you aren’t extremely skilled.

The most difficult part of bypassing locks, at least for me, is achieving the proper tension on the lock. Unfortunately, these sets may work against you just a bit in that area. The tension wrenches just don’t have the “touch” of a proper wrench or even the regular Bogota Entry Tools. That is to be expected though from a compact set like this that is only intended for emergency use. I prefer the wrench in the V2 set since it has a bit of extra length.

You should not expect the rakes to move through the keyways as smoothly as a regular Bogota Entry Tool. Those are basically hand worked to a high degree of polish. That is impossible with these sets since they are laser cut and intended to stay in the card form factor until they are needed. They do smooth out a bit initially as they are worked in the keyway.

If you have a set of normal Bogota Entry Tools that you can practice with but wish you could carry them in a very wallet friendly format, these are for you. If you do not already own a Bogota Entry Toolset, I wouldn’t recommend these since you will have to tear it apart to actually practice the techniques involved. Once these cards are dissembled, you can continue to use the tools but never put the card back together.

Help SerePick Fill Their Mondo Patch Panel

At JTT, we love us some OC Tactical Patch Panels and we love us some SerePick lock bypass tools. So, naturally, we got a kick out of this.

Our friends at SerePick posted a picture of their new Mondo Patch Panel from OC Tactical but it is looking pretty bare right now. If you send SerePick one of your Unit/Department patches to fill their patch panel, they will send your one of the embroidered patches and one of their slick new PVC glow in the dark Field Eyes. Check out the SerePick Facebook Page for details.
