I just used the following solution successfully...
thanx to whomever posted it.

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 http://www.samsonite.com 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.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

I have an old samsoniate vanity case bought about 16 or 17 years ago - it is open but locked with a combination which i have long since forgotten. Can you help me to reset it please


I don't know what you mean by open but locked, however, these locks can be changed to a new combination by sliding a stud inside the case (under the wheels) and holding it while setting new numbers on the wheels. I don't think this works unless you start with the wheels in the position of the old combination, though.

My Samsonite suitecase is open, I forgort my lock numbers, how can I set up new lock numbers?


Hi,

look behind the lock
there is a tiny part (like a stick shift) sticking out of a square about 1 cm across
move it to the diagonally opposite side
reset code
return shift to old position
For those without the little stick shift part, try this: With the case open, and the current combo in place, hold down the shackle (the little grey or black button beside the combination numbers).

While holding this shackle down, rotate the numbers to the number YOU WILL REMEMBER.
(Holding the shackle down allows the numbers to tumble without moving the divots.)


Let go of the shackle -these numbers are now associated with the divots.

Now your combination should be set to the number you wish.

Hope this helps,

Karlos
