SOURCE: I lost my keys to

file an old key with a small 'L' tip or do the same with a hacksaw blade. The tip should be appx 1/2" x 1/8" with the 'L' on the tip. Try several tip sizes. Spray some oil inside first.

SOURCE: I can't open my samsonite luggage...the combo is stuck but I can

Turn your suitcase upside down. At this position all your numbers look upside down. Now with the help of a torch light you should see a small gap above the rotating thing (the one with which you change your number) Take the first rotating thing and rotate from 0 to 9, at some particular number you can see a small hole inside the small gap which I have mentioned before. Do the same for the next 2 rotating thing.
When you are done you can see the small hole(a tiny spring like material is seen in the hole) in all the three small gaps.
Now you can open the number lock.

I have an old samsoniate vanity case bought about 16 or 17 years ago - it is open but locked with a combination which i have long since forgotten. Can you help me to reset it please


I don't know what you mean by open but locked, however, these locks can be changed to a new combination by sliding a stud inside the case (under the wheels) and holding it while setting new numbers on the wheels. I don't think this works unless you start with the wheels in the position of the old combination, though.

How to Unlock an American Tourister Suitcase's Number Lock

<b>• Place the suitcase right side up and look at every number wheel to find a hole at the bottom.
• Bring the holes of the three wheels in the same position.
• Now keep holding the button as to unlock and rotate the 1st wheel and reduce its number by 1.
• Repeat the same process with the rest of the two wheels.
• Again start with the 1st wheel and reduce another 1 position.
• Repeat the same process with the rest of the two wheels.
• Attempt the whole process for the third time and your suitcase will get unlocked.

How do I set a new combination if I don't know the oldone. Tehe suitecase is open. tks Leo


What follows are Samsonite's own instructions. Note that they don't work on the new Samsonite CURV though, but you didn't say which case you have:-

"The following are the lock picking instructions you requested from Samsonite Consumer Relations.
1. Position the luggage so that the numbers on the wheel are
right-side-up as they face you and set all three wheels to “0′.
2. Starting with the wheel on the left, to the right of the wheel,
look into the narrow space between the right side of the wheel and
the body of the lock. Look down into the shaft. (If you have a
safety pin, straight pin, or thin nail file, place that in the
narrow space.)
3. While looking down into the shaft, rotate the wheel slowly. You
are looking for an indentation (a square notch). When you find
the indentation, stop and write the number down. (If you are using
a tool, the tool will fall into the indentation.)
4. Follow the process for the remaining two wheels.
5. Try to open the piece of luggage.
6. If the luggage still will not open, please try the following:
a) If the number on the wheel is over 5, subtract 5 from the
number showing. For example, if the number showing is 8 turn
the wheel to 3 because 8-5=3.
b) If the number is under 5, add 5 to the number showing. For
example if the number showing is 2 turn the wheel to 7
because 2+5=7. The numbers showing on the wheels will be
your combination.
If you still have a problem with the combination lock, contact the nearest authorized repair center to your zip code for repair assistance. Our warranty and repair information can be viewed at http://www.samsonite.com under the heading “Customer Service Repair Centers” for your reference."

Please note that I've simply cut and pasted this answer from an identical question from a few days ago, but it did resolve the question and there's no point in me re-inventing the wheel. If you want to see the original question and answer then please click here.

Please remember to rate both my answer and also whichever of the answers in the original question you wish to vote for.

How is the camera mounted on the tripod? I do not kow how to screw camera onto mount base


Hello,

Cameras have a threaded hole underneath. See this photo:

10ef583.jpg Tripods have a threaded screw with a large thumb wheel to lock it in place. See this photo.

That's all there is to it. Good luck.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Missing a screw!


Hi Jonathan.
You can get the part you need (QB-4W) off the web. The part doesn't have a wheel, it's called a quick release plate. It's going to cost about 12. usd. Here is just one site you can find it.

Hope this helps.
