To all of you who have the "TSA007" locks:
This lock cannot be open without the "right" code.
The keyhole you see, is ONLY for customs in airports around the world.
This is so that they can open your'e luggage without breaking your'e suitcase...
Sorry folks!...but the only way you will get it open, is to break your'e suitcase...

    Can I buy a key?

  • anna achilleos Apr 28, 2011

    It was a confirmation to what I thought ! We should all sue TRITON for selling locks that ARE NOT RESETTABLE !!! They mention "Re-settable 3 dial for extra security" but they don't give instructions inside the package explaining HOW TO RESET or HOW TO SET THE COMBINATION !

    Not true. They're very easy to pick using the TSA entry point using a standard picking technique -- apply twist and rake the pins. However, you can find the combination with just a flashlight.

    Sweet, you managed to open it! To reset the lock, try looking under the clasp at the numeric dials. There is a gap under the dial where the latch can go in to release the clasp. Try to align them all again. These gaps move when latch is engaged and dial is turned; this sets a new numeric combination.

Somehow my lock got locked with the hasp not inside the lock mechanism. I was able to use a paper clip to trigger the tumbles then turn the mechanism. Once I had it unlocked I was able to reset the code using the reset procedure.

It's easier to pick these locks using the TSA master lock than finding the combination, but there is a way of finding the combination.

Shine a light on the edge of the lock and rotate each tumbler, slowly. If you look underneath each dial, you'll see there is a double groove that moves into position as you turn the dial. Each tumbler appears to have two elements that rotate but only one of them looks like a square groove viewed from above.

Turn each tumbler until the double groove lines up. In my case, this gave me 204.

You then subtract one from each tumbler so they all move around by one position, i.e., 193. This is the combination.

You can now push the hasp down at the 90° position and turn it to 180° (directly opposite the closed position) and set the new combination.

In my case, I think somebody accidentally put the lock into set mode and scrambled the combination so picking it didn't help me.

How can I open a Mia toro carryon with a combination lock?


Is this the TSA 3 digit combo lock on the suitcase? I found a couple of Youtube videos that show how to determine what the code is for your lock. Some of them have a reset button but this technique I think works just as well. Give her a gander.

Hope this helps, if its not the TSA lock let me know. I will find a good hack for you. If this did work let me know that too. Thank you.

Take it back to the airport and ask to speak to TSA and tell them that it was opened with the master key. Have them return the lock to its original position by turning the key.

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 a somesonite 30in hardshell , uprite about 20 yrs old. has 2 key locks, as well as combanation center lock. question how can i set these locks so that, they are TSA excessable locks??? PLS. Help ...


You can have the locks changed but, that will cost almost as much as new luggage. They will have to be kept unlocked and a TSA strap will be needed around the suitcase.
