I just used the following solution successfully...
thanx to whomever posted it.

Email from Samsonite in response to my plea for help:
Dear Sir/Madam:
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.
We appreciate your loyalty and will continue to design products that are reliable business or travel companions.

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.

SOURCE: 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.

How can i open my old samsonite briefcase combination unknown


1. Pull the sliding side latch to the side,
as you would if you were opening the briefcase normally. Holding the latch in position, lightly roll your fingers
down over each numbered wheel to identify which one is the tightest. The tightest wheel will give the least when
you gently tug on it with your fingertip.
2. Set the tightest wheel to "0." Check the tightness of the other two wheels; if they still feel loose, click the zeroed lock to "1" and feel the other two wheels again. Keep going in this fashion until one of the other two wheels feels tight. When one of the other wheels becomes tight, the first wheel is set at the correct number.
3. Move on to the second tightened wheel, continuing to hold the side latch in place. Set it at "0" and check the final loose wheel. Keep adjusting the second wheel, as you did with the first until the third wheel feels tight.
4. Set the final wheel at "0" and adjust it until the briefcase's top latches pop open. Make sure the sliding side latch is still being held in place.
5. Reset the combination to numbers you'll remember in the future. Write them down and store them in a safe place, just in case.

Can it be used as external hdd


Yes it can be used as an external hdd.

This is the only procedure i know and i hope you'll be satisfied.

Things You'll Need

Screwdriver

1

Locate and purchase an IDE to USB cable conversion kit. Insert the driver CD that came with the kit into your computer's CD drive. Follow the instructions on the installation prompt that will appear on your computer's screen to install the conversion cable driver software.

2

Power off the computer once the driver software has finished installing. Remove the power cable and all of the other cords from their ports on the back side of the computer.
3

Set the entire computer case on its side so that the left side panel is facing upwards. Check the back end of the case to determine if the side panel is locked with two case screws or only a metal latch. Disconnect the panel from the case either by removing the screws or by pulling upwards on the latch.
4
An IDE Cable

Pull the side panel off of the computer case and set it aside. Locate the drive that you want to connect with a USB cable. Remove the screws holding the drive into the drive bay. Disconnect one end of the IDE cable from the motherboard, but leave the other end connected to the back side of the drive itself.
5

Remove the drive from the drive bay with its connected IDE cable and set it outside of the computer case. Set the side panel back onto the case and re-attach the metal latch or case screws. Plug the cables back into the computer ports and power the computer back on.
6

Insert the end of the IDE cable that used to be connected to the motherboard into the IDE port on the conversion cable. Plug the male USB end at the other side of the conversion cable into any open USB port on your computer.

Have a nice day friend and i hope this would satisfy your needs.

How to take the outer casing off a maxtor one touch external hard drive


  • Feel along the back and bottom side of your Maxtor external hard drive. Depending on the specific model of hard drive you have the unit may have screws or plastic latches inside the case. Pull of the warranty sticker and check to see if the screws are located underneath it if you don't see any screws anywhere else. Pull out the rubber stoppers at the bottom of the external hard drive case and check if the screws are located underneath. Remove the screws if your model of Maxtor external hard drive has them. Insert a thin and flat object such as a flat head screwdriver between the seams of the two sides of the case if there are no visible screws. Run the flat object around the length of the external hard drive case until it hits a plastic latch. Wiggle the object up and down until the latch disengages. Continue sliding the screwdriver along the sides until all the latches are disengaged. Pull the two sides of the Maxtor external hard drive case apart to reveal the actual hard drive enclosure inside. Remove the screws holding the hard drive into its metal cage. Pull the existing hard drive unit out the metal cage and replace it with the new hard drive. Reassemble the unit and plug it back into your computer.

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.

Combination changed


Contact Samsonite and ask if there is a default code. If not, and the kid can not open it, you have a lot of combinations to try > SORRY!
Did you try to pick/pop the latch with a bobby pin or paper clip?
