Hi,

if there are only 3 digits, then you have less than 1000 combinations. you can try 1 or 2 combinations per second, so it shouldn't take you too long to come across it. start with 000, then 001, then 002 and so on until you get the right combination. even if its 999, it should only take you 15 minutes to get that combination. if its 4 digits, then you're looking at about 10,000 combinations, which will take you more like 2 hours. good luck!


I wouldn't start trying with less than 120 - never seems that they'd put two zeros or two ones first.

Check the samsonite website or call their customer service line.

Good luck..

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!

Please tell me how to set teh lock code for my samsonite silhouette 11 HS....no instructions were included! help!!


Sure... here're the instructions - open the suitcase, then open the zipper in the modesty pouch (it is mounted on the backside of the suitcase, along its entire length), and then from in there, take out the plastic packet. In the plastic packet are labels, warranty information, AND voila - the instructions to set the combination lock... :-)

I would tell you here too:
1. Open the suitcase

2. Look at the inside back of the lock - you would see a red color tab, and two markings - A

I just opened mine. I also knew the the password and the suitcase wasn't unlocking. If you are all sure that u know the password. Then put some oil in the lock. wait for 1 hour... This will help. If it doesn't work then.. Put the lock code and push the clips manually with a pait or scissors or a small blunt knife.. Don't worry the lock is just stuck. After all it's a vip and not samsonite
