Set luggage lock

Sometime ago, I bought a hard case luggage bag which has a combination lock. However I have lost the instructions on how to set the lock and have been too scared to use the luggage in the event someone scrambles the dial and I am unable to access my luggage. The numbers on the dial have always been in the 000 position. I would greatly appreciate some instructions if possible, so I can finally use the luggage!

The lock is currently set to 000. To set your own combination and with the lock in the 000 position, open the case and on the inside of the lock mechanism you will see a red tab. slide this tab to the left and then move the digits on the front to your desired code. ie 123. then move the red tab back to lock in this new setting as your own personal combination. close the case and then move the digits away from our setting of 123 and this locks the case. only if the digitrs are 123 in this example will the lock now open.

For older models follow directions above but push open latches all the way towards the handle...this opens the tumblers to a neutral position to re code!

Pegasus handle without lock has locked

before you put it together are you able to turn the nob with the return spring in it? I may be that you have the shaft going in the wrong side. Turn it and try it without putting it in the door. One way it will do as you are saying and when you turn the shaft 180o it should work.
