I have the same problem. But none of the answers helped me. My case bought 2017

• Ayan Bose Aug 11, 2017

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.

• Komal Shamihoke Nov 09, 2015

this trick was not much of help.... Basically I went through all combinations starting 000, 001 ,002 etc.

• Rajan Ramaswami Mar 27, 2016

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!

• Babulal Dholpure Apr 23, 2016

It was a great help, it took me 40 seconds to execute it after reading your help.

God Bless you

Same problem

• Sebastian Schwiebert Oct 01, 2018

I understood that only after opening the lock. And yes. if you place the suitcase that way, that you look directly onto the wheels, NOT the numbers, than you'll find little wholes under each wheel when it's number is correct.

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.

### Is first bag free

To both questions, "It depends on the airline."

While there are standard baggage sizes across some of the major carriers, it is prudent to check the airline you will be traveling upon regarding luggage fees, size allowances, and just what can be carried on and what must be checked. Plus, you have to know what you may carry in carryon luggage, what you can not take, and what can not be carried in checkin luggage. And weight is a factor as well.

### 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.

### It's locked and everything imp like my clothes atm etc is inside I am using this bag for first time but it's not opening up

Dial the three wheels to 0-0-0, which is the default combination setting for American Tourister and Samsonite luggage.

### I HAVE FORGOTEN THE CODE COMBINATION OF vip LUGAGE TROLLEY BAG SO PLEASE HELP

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.
