Question about Health & Beauty

1 Answer

My Samsonite oyster suitcase doesn't open. I can't find any "lever" or "button" to try to reset numbers. The suitcase has been forced open, but the lock w/numbers remains in one position and so I can't properly shut the suitcase (without having to pry it open again).

Hi

Squeeze down on the lid to release pressure on the lock and gently pry the lock up. Also look behind the lock on the inside of the case 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 (some move sideways toward the numbers and then up to hold it in place) 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.

*For those with combination locks on a zipper hard-shell, try this:

On the bottom edge of the casing surrounding the lock there is a small button. With the combination set to the current "open" numbers, depress the button with the end of a pen or something similar. It should "click" and stay depressed. Now turn the combination settings to a new number YOU WILL REMEMBER. Next, pull on the release button. The button will snap back out and the numbers you have set the combination to will now be the ones that open the lock.

*For those with neither one of the above options:

Try pushing the latch that usually opens the case towards the center (where the handle is) and set the new code while keeping the latch pushed towards the middle.

The latch usually opens the suitcase with the right combination when pushing it away from the middle (towards left and right) for setting the code you need to push the latch in the opposite direction (towards the handle).
Once you have the new lock code set, release the handle and you are done.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

How to reset a combination lock for samsonite luggage?


if the suitcase is open, look for a little red tab on the inside. Move it to the other side of the little window, then change the combination. If the suitcase is locked, you will have to try from the outside to find the correct combination

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.

I HAVE THE TSA COMBINATION LOCK ON A SAMSONITE GRAVITON G LUX


I can't answer the problem - but am interested as we had an identical failure on holiday in South Africa. We had to force the case open as the lock and the mechanism seemed to have come adrift in that when moving the lever with the correct combination - the case neither opened or closed. I'm sending it back to Samsonite under warranty to hopefully get it repaired/replaced. I rang the UK number listed on the Samsonite website. Bit disappointed as Samsonite should be more reliable - particularly given the price of the case, at £295, isn't exactly cheap.
