Email from Samsonite in response to my plea for help:
Dear Sir/Madam:
The following are the lock picking instructions you requested from Samsonite Consumer Relations.
1. Position the luggage so that the numbers on the wheel are
right-side-up as they face you and set all three wheels to “0′.
2. Starting with the wheel on the left, to the right of the wheel,
look into the narrow space between the right side of the wheel and
the body of the lock. Look down into the shaft. (If you have a
safety pin, straight pin, or thin nail file, place that in the
narrow space.)
3. While looking down into the shaft, rotate the wheel slowly. You
are looking for an indentation (a square notch). When you find
the indentation, stop and write the number down. (If you are using
a tool, the tool will fall into the indentation.)
4. Follow the process for the remaining two wheels.
5. Try to open the piece of luggage.
6. If the luggage still will not open, please try the following:
a) If the number on the wheel is over 5, subtract 5 from the
number showing. For example, if the number showing is 8 turn
the wheel to 3 because 8-5=3.
b) If the number is under 5, add 5 to the number showing. For
example if the number showing is 2 turn the wheel to 7
because 2+5=7. The numbers showing on the wheels will be
your combination.

How to reset a combination lock for samsonite luggage?


if the suitcase is open, look for a little red tab on the inside. Move it to the other side of the little window, then change the combination. If the suitcase is locked, you will have to try from the outside to find the correct combination

I have Samsonite suitcase with the lock type B. When I used it last time, it was working. Now the code system doesn't work at all. I carefully followed the instruction to lock it but the code doesn't work,...


did you do this...
STEP 1 Turn the number dials to the previously set combination, or to "0-0-0", the factory default combination for Samsonite luggage.
STEP 2 Locate the reset button, usually placed to the side of the combination dials.
STEP 3 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.
STEP 4 Release the reset button after you set the numbers to the new combination.
STEP 5 Test the combination by turning the dials to the new code to open the lock.
if you did this then I'd contact Samsonite Customer Service at 800-765-2247.
Happy New Year

My suitcase is open but since I dont have the lock combination (3 digits) I can't close it (not lock it, just close the case) . The combination changed when the case was open - is there a way to reset it ?

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.

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.
