    It's simple actually. Check for screws inside of your bag and unscrew them which is holding the lock on outside. Once unscrewed you will have the lock in your hand. Roll your numbers to check 3 numbers having grooves in same position and allows the unlock grooves fit in. Once you have got the 3 numbers grooves allowing the unlock button fit in, check the combination number it allowed. There you go, now you know your combination lock number. This method is for locks which do not have a reset button on outside of the lock.

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.
• Bring the holes of the three wheels in the same position.
• Now keep holding the button as to unlock and rotate the 1st wheel and reduce its number by 1.
• Repeat the same process with the rest of the two wheels.
• Again start with the 1st wheel and reduce another 1 position.
• Repeat the same process with the rest of the two wheels.
• Attempt the whole process for the third time and your suitcase will get unlocked.

    Thank You, Soumya Bose. Your suggestion worked with the lock in our American Tourister combination lock. Just to be clear this lock is attached/glued to the suitcase. No TSA002 diesignation.
    Couple of key points to note:
    We found out was that the holes are visible when more than one number is selected. The holes show up in the center, left of the slot.So, we selected the numbers such that the holes are lined up in the same orientation ( in our case left of center of slot).
    We also started with the suggested sequence with the number that is farthest from the latch. It might have worked starting with the number closest to the latch, but we do not know!

You can try 999 combinations but it's time consuming. Easiest way is to use a very fine blade with pointy tip and insert on right side of number wheel. Each wheel has a smaller wheel next to number wheel which is not visible. Now turn wheel and when you feel blade has pushed in make a note of the front number. Do the same to other two wheels. Let's say you got code 123, so to open it code will be 678. Basically opposite numbers, if you write it on a piece of paper numbers 0-9 you will be able to find opposite numbers.

By mistake I have locked my american tourister luggage bag and now I can not open it I forget the 3 digit combinations. How I can unlock it


Few standard combination locks are machined to such a high degreee of precision that when the lock is put under strain one or more of the numbered rotating dials is not left a little loose while the other(s) become tight.

It is a matter of slowly turning the tight dial or barrel until it becomes loose. At this point the lock will move a little as long as it is kept under strain and one of the other numbered barrels that was previously a little loose will become tighter and so it is time to slowly turn this barrel and repeat until the lock releases.

Practice on something like a cheap cycle lock and you will discover the trick that is increasingly difficult as the quality of the lock improves.
It takes a light touch and lots of patience. So far I have even opened a quite expensive combination padlock this way but it relies on imperfect manufacture. It would be quite impossible to use the technique on a perfectly made combination lock.

How to change the 3 digit code of my samsonite ?


Luggage manufacturer Samsonite offers a variety of business, personal, travel products and accessories. Many Samsonite pieces such as attaches and other bags include a three-digit, built-in combination lock. When purchased, the locks are set on a factory default combination that you can change as often as you wish.

STEP 1
Turn the number dials to the previously set combination, or to "0-0-0", the factory default combination for Samsonite luggage.

STEP 2
Locate the reset button, usually placed to the side of the combination dials.

STEP 3
Press the reset button and hold it while rotating the number dials to the desired combination. Set this to a sequence easy for you to remember but hard for others to figure out.

STEP 4
Release the reset button after you set the numbers to the new combination.

STEP 5
Test the combination by turning the dials to the new code to open the lock. If the combination does not open the lock, repeat Steps 1 through 4 and test the lock again. If you still can't open the lock, contact Samsonite Customer Service at 800-765-2247.

How do I can unlock dial lock


The master dial lock is the world's best selling combination padlock.The lock uses three digit combination of 40 numbers.allowing for 15,00 possible variations
.Follow these step to unlock dial lock. 25284217-gdc3ufgmlwaqnv2deqjxyac2-5-0.jpg With the Combination Step 1 Turn the lock until the numbers read right-side-up. Roll the left-most dial until the first number of your combination lines up with the scored hash mark just to the left of the dial.
With the Combination Step 2 Roll the middle dial until the appropriate number lines up with the number to its left. Do the same for the right-most number. Your three-digit combination should now show, left to right, lined up with the scored hash marks.
With the Combination Step 3 Pull the body of the lock away from the U-shaped metal ring without turning any of the dials. The lock will click open to expose a hook. The hook spins 360 degrees so that it can be placed onto, and taken off, luggage.
Forgotten Combination Step 1 Pull the body of the lock and the U-shaped ring away from each other to put pressure on the mechanism inside the lock. Pull the body of the lock away from its attachment, or, if the lock is not attached, apply pressure on the U-shaped ring away from the body of the lock with your fingers. Keep holding a firm, steady pressure.
Forgotten Combination Step 2 Roll the dial closest to the U-shaped ring slowly, while keeping steady pressure on the mechanism. The dial will get difficult to roll over three consecutive numbers, and one of those numbers will click. You should feel and hear this small click, and that is the first number to your combination.
Forgotten Combination Step 3 Repeat Step 2 with the middle dial, and then the farthest dial. Leave the dial set when you find the click, moving onto the next dial. The combination will reveal itself, letting you pull the U-ring away from the body of the lock.
Resetting Your Combination Step 1 Hold the body of the lock so that the numbers face away from you. Set the combination and release the U-shaped ring.
Resetting Your Combination Step 2 Turn the hook of the U-shaped ring counterclockwise 90 degrees until the notch on the stem of the hook and the hole on the body of the lock line up. Push the stem of the hook down into the body of the lock as far as it will go.
Resetting Your Combination Step 3 Turn the hook another 90 degrees counterclockwise while it is depressed into the body of the lock.
Resetting Your Combination Step 4 Roll the dials until you have your new combination.
Resetting Your Combination Step 5 Turn the hook 90 degrees clockwise and raise the stem out of the body of the lock. Turn it another 90 degrees clockwise and push it back into the locked position. The lock now uses your new combination.

    Please check out this page: http://www.vipbags.com/support/luggage-care-faqs

    VIP provides assistance if you forgot your combination code. If this is not an option, first try all the combination, 000, 001 etc. Birth dates, last/first three digits of your phone number, car number etc. If this is not an option either, take it to the luggage seller, they can break the lock. If everything else fails, then you need to cut it open.
