F'lite Samsonite combination lost and stuck locked:
I removed the lock unfastening the 2 torx screws from the case.
Next I removed the pin that holds the RED tab thingy in place and the spring ( all this does is pushthe assembly to the right when a number is moved..... Take a picture of this before you dissassemble it. push it allthe way through..if you have fat fingers you are screwed. Anyway, remove the red thingy, and then carefully lift the remaining plate out taking note of the orientation.
First of all: the solution is aligning the cogs to 0-0-0 like from the factory. This is easy to do. when you remove the plate above , carefully do so without launching the dials and the spring into space....no matter.
Look at the bottom of the plate and notice there is a notch that will correspond to the cogs still in place on the lock assembly that should still be in place.
The cogs sit on a spring that sit on the backside of the dials with the numbers you can see when locking the suitcase.
Here is the meat:
1. with your finger or something turn the cogs until the black dot aligns outmost.
2 align the cogs so that notch will correspond to the orientation on the plate you just looked at. (that's it)!
Carefully replace the plate with finger pressure and actuate the latch-it should be unlocked and at the 0-0-0 position. If not repeat 1 and 2.
Push the pin through again, through the red thingy and the spring. BAMMM! you just saved your self a zillion dollars...still having trouble...mail this to me and for $15. I fix it for yaz....

There is a better solution than all these posted here.
Turn your suitcase (Samsonite F'LITE comfort) upside down. At this position all your numbers look upside down. Now with the help of a torch light you should see a small gap above the rotating thing (the one with which you change your number) Take the first rotating thing and rotate from 0 to 9, at some particular number you can see a small hole inside the small gap which I have mentioned before. Do the same for the next 2 rotating thing.
When you are done you can see the small hole(a tiny spring like material is seen in the hole) in all the three small gaps.
Now you can open the number lock. :-)
