By mistake I have locked my american tourister luggage bag and now I can not open it I forget the 3 digit combinations. How I can unlock it

Few standard combination locks are machined to such a high degreee of precision that when the lock is put under strain one or more of the numbered rotating dials is not left a little loose while the other(s) become tight.

It is a matter of slowly turning the tight dial or barrel until it becomes loose. At this point the lock will move a little as long as it is kept under strain and one of the other numbered barrels that was previously a little loose will become tighter and so it is time to slowly turn this barrel and repeat until the lock releases.

Practice on something like a cheap cycle lock and you will discover the trick that is increasingly difficult as the quality of the lock improves.
It takes a light touch and lots of patience. So far I have even opened a quite expensive combination padlock this way but it relies on imperfect manufacture. It would be quite impossible to use the technique on a perfectly made combination lock.

I have a Brinks padlock model TSA007 it has a keyhole but it didnt come with a key, can i purchase a key just for backup?

That key wont do anyting but allow TSA to open that lock. You cannot get that key because it is a master key that opens all those locks and it is restricted.

I have a mazda 323 1994. i put a ignition in it but now the key wont turn. ?????

If you put a new ignition switch in it is possible that the pins in the barrel are sticking and are not moving as they should.. take the key out and put powered graphite in the key hole and move the key in and out a few times and that lubricates the pins.. If it still will not turn then best check that the key is correct for the barrel .

Unlock scooter seat

Try some lock cleaner\ lubricant, use liberally, press down gently on the seat locking latch. If that doesn't work try shocking the mechanism with my favorite tool, a rubber mallet. If the key turns that part of the mechanism works. Put the key in to the release position. Go to where the latch is, use a bright light, see if the latch is engaged, Usually this kind of lock uses a hook latch. The hook is literally apart of the key barrel so if the barrel moves the latch hast to be moving too. Check the chair itself that its not stuck. WARNING Lubricate with pure silicon spray only it wont stain your chair. Lub all rotating joints and see if you can move it.
Hope this helps

Just purchased a verbatim 4gb usb drive in a plastic case with a little red and green padlock on the side of the case, how do you open it??

From what I have seen on Google images there should be a plastic slider down the middle that needs to be moved to the Green padlock. The Red padlock will mean data locked the Green open.
