Contact Samsonite and ask if there is a default code. If not, and the kid can not open it, you have a lot of combinations to try > SORRY!
Did you try to pick/pop the latch with a bobby pin or paper clip?

Is there an owner's manual available on line for a Stebco Attache Case Model P-16? I need to know how to set the combinations on the dial lock system.

I couldn't find the manual for your particular briefcase, but please read the instructions on the attached link. It should help you since most briefcase combination locks work the same. Hope it helps.

How to Change the Lock Combination on Briefcase

1 Answer

How do you set your own combination for the locks on the briefcase,there were no instructions with the case

  • 1 Turn the lock to the correct combination and open the briefcase.
  • 2 Look at the lock. There should be one or two pins that you can slide with your fingers. If there is one, simply push it in. If there are two, push them together. It may be the same button you use to open the case.
  • 3 Change the lock to an easy-to-remember value, such as 000 or 123, to test the lock. Release the pin.
  • 4 Close the briefcase and turn the lock to another value. It should not open. Now turn it to the test combination. It should open right up.
  • 5 Repeat Steps 2 and 3, but this time choose a number that will be easy for you to remember, but hard for someone else to guess. Write down your new combination and keep it somewhere safe.

    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.

    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.

    Change combination on a presto lock on a briefcase

    Enter the correct code and open the case. Now push the button you use to open the case to the open position and hold it there, now push in the clamp and push the opener more and it will lock in place. Enter the new code and push the clamp part again to set it. Do to other side now.

    Harldline safe not opening

    Sure blame the poor kid.
    Think about it, what good would a safe be if by pressing a few keys the combination was changed?
    As with any combination safe you need to clear the combination by turning one, two or three times in the opposite direction before entering the combination.

    Now say your sorry to your kid.

    How do I change the combination code for the glove box if there is not a way how would I find out what the combination is

    I assume you know the current combination and can open it. To set the combination to a number code of your choice you must first remove the red plastic guard over the yellow tab next to the combination dials. Push the glove box release lever to the right to open the glove box. To change the combination:
    1. With the glovebox open, hold the release to the right and slide the yellow tab up. This locks the release open and permits you to reset the code.
    2.After resetting the code, write it down in case you forget it.
    3. Slide the yellow tab down and the release will return to the closed position.
    4. Close the glove box and move the dials off the code you set to lock it.
    This is all from the 89 Pontiac Owners Manual. Good luck, hope it works.
