I just opened mine. I also knew the the password and the suitcase wasn't unlocking. If you are all sure that u know the password. Then put some oil in the lock. wait for 1 hour... This will help. If it doesn't work then.. Put the lock code and push the clips manually with a pait or scissors or a small blunt knife.. Don't worry the lock is just stuck. After all it's a vip and not samsonite

There are no more than 1000 lock combinations. Try out one by one. In my case I broke open within seven minutes. Its easy and won't cause any damage to the lock.

How do you reset a lock on a hot tuna case please

Picture the scene, you've just arrived at your hotel in an unfamiliar city after a long flight. You put your suitcase on the bed and slowly turn the numbered wheels of the three-digit combination lock. You press the button to get access to your case but nothing happens. The metal zipper tags remain firmly trapped in the lock's clasp...
A locked suitcase with TSA approved combination lock
Getting locked out of your luggage is something that happens to even the most seasoned travellers at some time or another. Luckily the ubiquitous, TSA approved, 3-digit combination locks used by brands such as Samsonite, Eastpack, Antler and American Tourister are easy to open without damaging either the lock or the case and without any special tools.
By following the steps described below, you will be able to quickly open the lock and re-program the code to a new 3 digit combination which is easier to remember.
A 3-digit TSA007 combination suitcase lock
How to Unlock Your Suitcase When You Forgot the Combination If you look closely at the lock from above, you will see that to one side of the 3 numbered thumb-wheels there is a small disk (see photos below).
I have found that the best way to see the disks is by using your mobile phone's camera.
Select the video camera and shine the flash down into the lock then zoom-in to see the disks more clearly.
Starting with the first thumb-wheel of the lock, turn the wheel one click at a time until you see a notch in the disk as shown in the photos.
Once you have lined up the notch of the first wheel you then repeat the process for the second and third digit until the notches of all three wheels are lined up (see the photo of the blue suitcase).
Once all three notches are lined up, turn the suitcase so you can see the numbers.
Note, this is NOT the combination code.
The notch is not visible on either disk
Write down the numbers on the first line of a blank sheet of paper.
On the next line add 1 to each digit.
Repeat this 8 more times until you have a list of 10 3-digit numbers as shown in the photo below.
Try the codes one at a time until you find the one which opens the suitcase.
Once the case is open you can change the combination for one which is easier to remember.
With practice, the entire procedure takes less than 2 minutes.

Video: How to Quickly Open Your Suitcase Lock When You Forgot the Code


When writing this article I used 2 different suitcases, both of which are fitted with TSA approved Travel Sentry combination locks. The locks are slightly different models but the procedure is identical.
I made the video using the older, blue, suitcase because the notches in the green plastic discs are easier to see than the notches in the black disks of the red suitcase.
The code which opened the red suitcase was 2 clicks away from the position with the disks lined up. The code which opened the blue case was 8 clicks away.
If none of the codes which you have written down work you should check that you lined the notches up correctly. As can be seen in the video, there are normally two positions where the notches are visible. Make sure that all 3 notches are lined up in the same position. You can see that in the video I lined up the disks at the right-hand position.
The notch on the left disk is now visible

How do Combination Locks Work?

The 3-digit combination locks used on suitcases are designed so that you can change the combination to a unique code which only you know.
To do this, you have to first set the lock to the current combination. You then press a small button (normally using a ballpoint pen) which frees the numbered thumb-wheels from the locking mechanism (currently in the open position).
You can then turn the 3 numbered thumb wheels independently to a new combination before pushing the larger button (the one which is used to open the lock). This re-connects the numbered thumb-wheels to the locking mechanism, activating the new code.
The method described above relies on the fact that part of the locking mechanism itself is visible (the notched disks next to the thumb-wheels). This makes the number shown on the knurled thumb-wheel pretty much irrelevant. Once the disks are aligned you simply need to rotate them around until the lock opens.
The notches on all three disks are lined up

What Are TSA Approved Locks?

The TSA (Transportation Security Administration) is a US federal government agency responsible for the security of travellers that was created in response to the September 11 attacks.
All luggage is scanned before being loaded into aeroplanes and if any prohibited items are detected it will be opened by airport staff and the items removed.
TSA approved locks, identified by the red diamond shaped Travel Sentry logo, can be opened using master keys. The locks are often incorporated into suitcases but TSA approved padlocks are also available.
If your suitcase can't be opened with a master key then, if they need inspect your luggage, airport staff will open it by force, cutting off padlocks etc.
To save confusion it's a good idea to note down the numbers
In theory the keys are only available to airport staff but in reality anyone with a 3D printer can print out their own master keys.
Is it Really worth Locking my TSA approved Luggage Lock? As we have seen, the 3-digit combination locks fitted to most modern suitcases offer very little or no security. At best they stop your suitcase from opening accidentally during transit, preventing your dirty laundry from spilling out on the baggage carousel.
Some suitcases (including the red suitcase in the photos) have small metal hoops incorporated into the zip-pullers allowing you to use a padlock to lock your suitcase. Although at first glance this may seem to add a second level of security, in reality, it's a waste of time. As shown in this video, zip closure suitcases can be opened quickly and easily using a ballpoint pen.
Once the lock opens you can change it to one which you can remember

Eminent luggage lock

TSA lock on Eminent Osmosis Luggage, three digit TSA lock (HOW to change it to YOUR personal number)

Put the code numbers to '000'
Take the lock levers OFF the lock
Push the round opening button UPWARDS.
IMPORTANT :
KEEP holding the button UP until you have changed the numbers
Change the TSA code numbers to what YOU want
Release the round opening button
Now your case combo lock numbers have been changed.

To lock the case put the two lock levers into the holes, spin the numbers and your case will be locked.
To UNLOCK the TSA code spin the numbers to YOUR lock code, push the lock button UP and, hey presto, your case will open.

If you forget your NEW lock number you will NEED to go through ALL the numbers, starting at '000' to '999', to be able to open the lock/case.
REMEMBER to PUSH the ROUND OPENING button UPWARDS on EVERY number change.
Only THEN, when it finds YOUR correct three digit number, will it eventually open the suitcase/luggage/baggage.
Good luck

I HAVE FORGOTEN THE CODE COMBINATION OF vip LUGAGE TROLLEY BAG SO PLEASE HELP

Please check out this page: http://www.vipbags.com/support/luggage-care-faqs

VIP provides assistance if you forgot your combination code. If this is not an option, first try all the combination, 000, 001 etc. Birth dates, last/first three digits of your phone number, car number etc. If this is not an option either, take it to the luggage seller, they can break the lock. If everything else fails, then you need to cut it open.

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.
