    Try asking your questions again in the proper category since the expertise in this area is tripods and cameras, not luggage. If you ended up in tripods after starting in luggage, contact the FixYa staff to correct the problem. The other categories experts will be much better at answering your specific problem than the photo guys.

I forgot my combination for my samsonite briefcase

Hello my name is Troy Ruff, I run a small production company called, Ruff Productions. The issue is when I move the head slowly it makes a popping sound and it ruins the shot every time. This has to be a defect. I bought this about a year and a half ago and it started doing this about 6 months in, I keep really good care of my stuff and have used it maybe fifty times. I spent around $1800.00 and I really need this fixed, I do a lot of short films and some feature films. Please let me know what I can do to get this fixed as soon as possible. Thank you for your time. Troy Ruff Ruff Productions 559-907-0000 web:

I need to put a new combination on my briefcase. It has one combination in the middle

When you open the briefcase on the inside to the right of where the combination is in the center there is a metal lever sticking out.
Push this lever to the left and hold it there while you change the combination numbers.

When you let the lever spring back to it's normal position, the numbers set will be the new combination.

I have an old Samsonite briefcase which is locked and I have lost the key. Is it possible to get a replacement key?

Keys are surely available; check the Samsonite website. Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on your perspective, most of those types of locks are primitive and can often be opened with a number of other keys of stamped steel.
If you just want it open, I would go to the nearest locksmith and give him $5 to pick it. You might also get a replacement key from the same place.

I do not know the combination of my samsonite hard case suitcase

I tried working through the series of possible numbers and at the same time gently pressing the lower part of the lock to see if it would open. After a while I used a claw hammer which I gently inserted the claw beneath the lower portion of the lock and again gently prised it and at first go the lock opened and no damage done that I can see. I have not reset the lock yet.

Samsonite Briefcase, fogot the Combination Lock can not open it

There is no quick fix, it wouldn't be very secure if there was.

There are 999 possible combinations remaining and if you start at 001 you'd be extremely unlucky to need to go through all of them. Try 999 straight away though, sometimes the tumblers can appear to be set to 000 when they're actually at 999.

Suitcase number locked combination forgotten

f'lite Samsonite combination lost and stuck locked:
I removed the lock unfastening the 2 torx screws from the case.
Next I removed the pin that holds the RED tab thingy in place and the spring ( all this does is pushthe assembly to the right when a number is moved..... Take a picture of this before you dissassemble it. push it allthe way through..if you have fat fingers you are screwed. Anyway, remove the red thingy, and then carefully lift the remaining plate out taking note of the orientation.

First of all: the solution is aligning the cogs to 0-0-0 like from the factory. This is easy to do. when you remove the plate above , carefully do so without launching the dials and the spring into matter.

Look at the bottom of the plate and notice there is a notch that will correspond to the cogs still in place on the lock assembly that should still be in place.

The cogs sit on a spring that sit on the backside of the dials with the numbers you can see when locking the suitcase.

Here is the meat:

1. with your finger or something turn the cogs until the black dot aligns outmost.
2 align the cogs so that notch will correspond to the orientation on the plate you just looked at. (that's it)!
Carefully replace the plate with finger pressure and actuate the latch-it should be unlocked and at the 0-0-0 position. If not repeat 1 and 2.

Push the pin through again, through the red thingy and the spring. BAMMM! you just saved your self a zillion dollars...still having trouble...mail this to me and for $15. I fix it for yaz....
