Re: change luggage key combination

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 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.

Re: change luggage key combination

To find combination -find thin plastic package from battery/toy/anything in a plastic shell, Cut stip about 1/4''wide-1''long. Start on either end left or right. Slip plastic in slot beside each dial as you turn the dial feel for a flat spot on the shaft that goes through the dials. Stop on the flat spot for each dial. The flat spot is small so pay attention. These numbers are your combination . Open your case.Takes only seconds once you know what a flat spot feels like. Works on cases that are locked closed or open. GOOD LUCK

Re: change luggage key combination

I had the same problem, basically I went through all combinations starting 000, 001 ,002 etc. Ok it took a couple of hours, my fingers were sore but cheaper than buying another one !

Re: change luggage key combination

I am sorry but the solution above was totally innappropriate, samsonite suitcases are expensive. I got mine as a B-day present and i am not prepared to buy a new one.
Does anyone else have any practical suggestions?

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

How do get the zipper on my large Samsonite suitcase fixed?

There are a few things to go wrong, you did not mention what's wrong. I suggest going to You Tube and type - ZIPPER REPAIR - there is lots of good step by step videos.

My 1st choice if you can't do it yourself is try a local Luggage only store at the Mall . They all should have repair contractors if they do not do it themselves. They may also be able to return it to Samsonite for repair.

My 2nd choice would be to try a local Automotive or Marine Trim Shop. They should be able to fix or replace any zipper. If it can't be fixed they will tell you so. Good luck.

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.

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 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.
