If it is locked shut then all u need to do is get a flashlight and shine it directley into the little crack on the right side of each wheel. Once u have done that on the first one u will see an indentation that looks like a square and it should be face up and dead center for each wheel. You will b able to tell when you have all 3 lined up and that should b your combination. Well if for some reason that does not want to work all you need to do is -5 from the first number of your comb. then go to the second one and +5 and do the same to the third one and this will bypass the faulty combo and will allow the springs underneath the wheels to align right so that you can open it right away. This is the factory default way to get around a combo that will no longer work.

How to reset a combination lock for samsonite luggage?


if the suitcase is open, look for a little red tab on the inside. Move it to the other side of the little window, then change the combination. If the suitcase is locked, you will have to try from the outside to find the correct combination

Roncato suitcase forgotten my combination and cant open the suitcase


I have a Roncato hard shell with a 3 digit combination lock under the handle. I set the combination YEARS ago, had a young child play "horsey" on it, and turned all the numbers! The suitcase was locked and I had forgotten the combination. I followed the instructions in answer 2 above and it worked! I didn't have to add or subtract 5. I used a small sewing needle and a strong flashlight - the indentations were easy to see.

I have a Samsonite suite case that has not been used for some time many a few years due to forgetting the combination code. Can you help as i am now in need of another suitcase and do not want to have to...


You can open combination locks by pulling on them and then rotating the rings until you feel the mechanism "give".

I'm not sure if this would be too successful with a suitcase but it is worth a try. Use a screwdriver to gently pull along the axis of the lock and rotate one furthest away from the catch.
Rotate it until it goes slack and then feel for the next one along and repeat.

Continue until all the tumblers have loosened, when the lock should open.

Some patience and practice needed.


Good luck!

I have Samsonite suitcase with the lock type B. When I used it last time, it was working. Now the code system doesn't work at all. I carefully followed the instruction to lock it but the code doesn't work,...


did you do this...
STEP 1 Turn the number dials to the previously set combination, or to "0-0-0", the factory default combination for Samsonite luggage.
STEP 2 Locate the reset button, usually placed to the side of the combination dials.
STEP 3 Press the reset button and hold it while rotating the number dials to the desired combination. Set this to a sequence easy for you to remember but hard for others to figure out.
STEP 4 Release the reset button after you set the numbers to the new combination.
STEP 5 Test the combination by turning the dials to the new code to open the lock.
if you did this then I'd contact Samsonite Customer Service at 800-765-2247.
Happy New Year

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.

I HAVE THE TSA COMBINATION LOCK ON A SAMSONITE GRAVITON G LUX


I can't answer the problem - but am interested as we had an identical failure on holiday in South Africa. We had to force the case open as the lock and the mechanism seemed to have come adrift in that when moving the lever with the correct combination - the case neither opened or closed. I'm sending it back to Samsonite under warranty to hopefully get it repaired/replaced. I rang the UK number listed on the Samsonite website. Bit disappointed as Samsonite should be more reliable - particularly given the price of the case, at £295, isn't exactly cheap.
