(414) Review: Goso 18-Piece Dimple Pick Set (Barely Adequate)


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!

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. Brilliant Channel – just subscribed and very impressed ! Your opening titles look excellent. I keep getting the back slip indication on a padlock I am trying to pick on pin 3 – will that definitely be a 'bobbin' type pin – getting very frustrated as I can't get past it – do you force this pin back past shear line. I've successfully picked a lot of padlocks and this is only a TriCircle small lock. I don't want to strip it down just yet. I have tried raking but the warding is curved and I can't get a smooth run across the pins. Cheers and have a great day !

  2. PP,
    Making them is the best way to go – I'm thinking about a video on it. You, however, are lucky because they sell the Souber kit in the UK pretty "inexpensively". It is an excellent kit but the handles are crap and it only comes with a single, left handed curved flag. Works great on UK MTLs since they are left-handed, but sucks for everyone else.

  3. thats the set i brought years ago and i still havent picked a dimple lock with them and now i know why lol i rarely come across a dimple lock and some poor quality ones can be raked which is my main attack unfortunately but i think its about time i got some decent tips made and i can get to work then. do u recommend making some bill?

  4. For that price it might be worth trying to use Kasenit Surface Hardening Compound on a few or even the entire set. If nothing else it might make them last a bit longer. Would not take too much to find out and certainly won't cause them to become any softer.

  5. I have the GOSO set and Sauber set. I uploaded a video other day using the Sauber picks to single pin pick a Mul-T-Lock. Now whenever I used the GOSO picks a lot of the time the pick got trapped between pins and had to use a bobby pin to push all pins down so I could get the pick out. I do not have that issue with the Sauber ones so stick with them.

  6. Great review. This is the set I have. And it do need a lot of finishing to be useful. The first "tension tool" you hold up, is great for zeroing disc detainer locks. Beside from that I see little use for it.
