I forgot the combination numbers of how to lock my suitcase

If your suitcase closes with a zip, then it can be opened with a normal biro (the ubiquitous cheap Bic office biro works particularly well). Simply hold the biro so it points parallel to the zip, with the nib end pointing into the zip teeth (I find about 60 degrees works). Then press down. The pen disengages the teeth of the zip, and you can pull them apart by running the pen or your finger along the zip. Apps For PC

Recover the combination to a lock for a suitcase, it's locked solid and I can't remember the combination!

Presumably it is a three digit code, so all you have to do is start at 000 and progress steadily towards 999. if you make twenty attempts per minute, it should take less than an hour, and is far less destructive than other suggestions offered.

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.

My suitcase is open but since I dont have the lock combination (3 digits) I can't close it (not lock it, just close the case) . The combination changed when the case was open - is there a way to reset it ?

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.

My Samsonite suitecase is open, I forgort my lock numbers, how can I set up new lock numbers?


look behind the lock
there is a tiny part (like a stick shift) sticking out of a square about 1 cm across
move it to the diagonally opposite side
reset code
return shift to old position
For those without the little stick shift part, try this: With the case open, and the current combo in place, hold down the shackle (the little grey or black button beside the combination numbers).

While holding this shackle down, rotate the numbers to the number YOU WILL REMEMBER.
(Holding the shackle down allows the numbers to tumble without moving the divots.)

Let go of the shackle -these numbers are now associated with the divots.

Now your combination should be set to the number you wish.

Hope this helps,
