  • 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.

    How can i open my old samsonite briefcase combination unknown

    1. Pull the sliding side latch to the side,
    as you would if you were opening the briefcase normally. Holding the latch in position, lightly roll your fingers
    down over each numbered wheel to identify which one is the tightest. The tightest wheel will give the least when
    you gently tug on it with your fingertip.
    2. Set the tightest wheel to "0." Check the tightness of the other two wheels; if they still feel loose, click the zeroed lock to "1" and feel the other two wheels again. Keep going in this fashion until one of the other two wheels feels tight. When one of the other wheels becomes tight, the first wheel is set at the correct number.
    3. Move on to the second tightened wheel, continuing to hold the side latch in place. Set it at "0" and check the final loose wheel. Keep adjusting the second wheel, as you did with the first until the third wheel feels tight.
    4. Set the final wheel at "0" and adjust it until the briefcase's top latches pop open. Make sure the sliding side latch is still being held in place.
    5. Reset the combination to numbers you'll remember in the future. Write them down and store them in a safe place, just in case.

    Set combination lock

    Step 1:

    Step 2:
    Press the reset button and hold it while rotating the number dials to the desired combination.

    Step 3:
    Release the reset button after you set the numbers to the new combination.

    Try that :)

    There should be a reset pin hole near the unlock buttons of the suitcase. Just use a pin or something to reset the lock. Set your code, write it down, and there you go!
    Hope it helps!

    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.

    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.
