To all of you who have the "TSA007" locks:
This lock cannot be open without the "right" code.
The keyhole you see, is ONLY for customs in airports around the world.
This is so that they can open your'e luggage without breaking your'e suitcase...
Sorry folks!...but the only way you will get it open, is to break your'e suitcase...

    Can I buy a key?

    It was a confirmation to what I thought ! We should all sue TRITON for selling locks that ARE NOT RESETTABLE !!! They mention "Re-settable 3 dial for extra security" but they don't give instructions inside the package explaining HOW TO RESET or HOW TO SET THE COMBINATION !

    Not true. They're very easy to pick using the TSA entry point using a standard picking technique -- apply twist and rake the pins. However, you can find the combination with just a flashlight.

    Sweet, you managed to open it! To reset the lock, try looking under the clasp at the numeric dials. There is a gap under the dial where the latch can go in to release the clasp. Try to align them all again. These gaps move when latch is engaged and dial is turned; this sets a new numeric combination.

Somehow my lock got locked with the hasp not inside the lock mechanism. I was able to use a paper clip to trigger the tumbles then turn the mechanism. Once I had it unlocked I was able to reset the code using the reset procedure.

It's easier to pick these locks using the TSA master lock than finding the combination, but there is a way of finding the combination.

Shine a light on the edge of the lock and rotate each tumbler, slowly. If you look underneath each dial, you'll see there is a double groove that moves into position as you turn the dial. Each tumbler appears to have two elements that rotate but only one of them looks like a square groove viewed from above.

Turn each tumbler until the double groove lines up. In my case, this gave me 204.

You then subtract one from each tumbler so they all move around by one position, i.e., 193. This is the combination.

You can now push the hasp down at the 90° position and turn it to 180° (directly opposite the closed position) and set the new combination.

In my case, I think somebody accidentally put the lock into set mode and scrambled the combination so picking it didn't help me.

My samsonite luggage with a four digit lock was opened by US customs and since then the case can be opened by pushing the open button whatever digits appear on the lock. Can this be fixed?


Most likely they pried it open and snapped the locking mechanism inside. Definitely not repairable, but you might be able to replace the entire combination lock. If you think the luggage is worth the expense, you could send it back to the manufacturer for repair.

It is usually unwise to lock suitcases these days when traveling by air. Especially on international flights. It's better to just use a zip tie, which can be cut off easily without damaging your luggage. That way you can tell that your suitcase has been tampered with (Cusoms & TSA will usually tag it anyway), so you can make sure nothing is missing, but avoid damage to your luggage or locks. Those locks don't really provide any security anyway.

So, if the latch still works, leave it alone and use the zip ties (through the zipper pulls) the next time you travel.

Eminent luggage lock


TSA lock on Eminent Osmosis Luggage, three digit TSA lock (HOW to change it to YOUR personal number)

Put the code numbers to '000'
Take the lock levers OFF the lock
Push the round opening button UPWARDS.
IMPORTANT :
KEEP holding the button UP until you have changed the numbers
Change the TSA code numbers to what YOU want
Release the round opening button
Now your case combo lock numbers have been changed.

To lock the case put the two lock levers into the holes, spin the numbers and your case will be locked.
To UNLOCK the TSA code spin the numbers to YOUR lock code, push the lock button UP and, hey presto, your case will open.

If you forget your NEW lock number you will NEED to go through ALL the numbers, starting at '000' to '999', to be able to open the lock/case.
REMEMBER to PUSH the ROUND OPENING button UPWARDS on EVERY number change.
Only THEN, when it finds YOUR correct three digit number, will it eventually open the suitcase/luggage/baggage.
Good luck

You can have the locks changed but, that will cost almost as much as new luggage. They will have to be kept unlocked and a TSA strap will be needed around the suitcase.

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.
