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.

What follows are Samsonite's own instructions. Note that they don't work on the new Samsonite CURV though, but you didn't say which case you have:-

"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."

Please note that I've simply cut and pasted this answer from an identical question from a few days ago, but it did resolve the question and there's no point in me re-inventing the wheel. If you want to see the original question and answer then please click here.

Please remember to rate both my answer and also whichever of the answers in the original question you wish to vote for.

Turn your suitcase 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.

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.
