SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: How do you unlock a TSA COMBINATION LOCK WITH fogotten. number?

The only way to reset a TSA Combination lock is to turn the numbers until you get it. The good news is that you only have 1000 possible combinations. Start at 0 0 0, then 0 0 1, 0 0 2, etc...

There are posted videos on YouTube that talk about how to reset locks with unknown combinations but they are specific to the brand of the lock; assuming they aren't fake videos anyhow.

Samsonite luggage


That keyhole is so that TSA can open that lock and take it off. They only time they would do that is if your are flying on a plane and the bag is in checked luggage and it needs to be searched.

TSA locked our TSA002 lock on our samsonite bag when they inspected it. We do not have a key. TSA said we needed to go back to the airport, but is there a way to get a key?


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.
