Luggage manufacturer Samsonite offers a variety of business, personal, travel products and accessories. Many Samsonite pieces such as attaches and other bags include a three-digit, built-in combination lock. When purchased, the locks are set on a factory default combination that you can change as often as you wish.
Turn the number dials to the previously set combination, or to "0-0-0", the factory default combination for Samsonite luggage.
Locate the reset button, usually placed to the side of the combination dials.
Press the reset button and hold it while rotating the number dials to the desired combination. Set this to a sequence easy for you to remember but hard for others to figure out.
Release the reset button after you set the numbers to the new combination.
Test the combination by turning the dials to the new code to open the lock. If the combination does not open the lock, repeat Steps 1 through 4 and test the lock again. If you still can't open the lock, contact Samsonite Customer Service at 800-765-2247.
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. :-)
No. That's part of the whole purpose of TSA passkeys; they're held securely and only at ports. If it were easy for anyone else to get hold of them the locks which are TSA approved would become pointless.
You only have three options if you do not want to return to the airport:-
1. Get a locksmith;
2. Cut the lock off/drill it out;
3. If your lock is usually key operated (not a combination) then there will be a number next to the lock barrel (not the TSA number, that just tells the TSA which of their passkeys to use). A Samsonite dealer can order the correct key for you using the number and some even keep them in stock.
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.
