AMAZING!. it works!

a magnifying glass held steady to the Right of the tumbler helps. and a desk lamp so you don't have to hold a flash light too.

000 is the default... but if the lock gets "accidentally" changed here is what you do...

Answer
  • Use a flashlight to look into the rotating numbers.
  • Watch to the inside of the number you are turning and you will see a piece of metal that moves with the number.
  • Turn the 1st rotating number one at a time, while watching that metal piece, eventually you will see a divot come around. LEAVE THE NUMBER IN THAT PLACE.
  • Continue with the next two rotating numbers, watching for that divot.
  • When all three have the divot, viola, that is the current set combination.
  • In some cases the divots may be hard to see. Set all three number divots to look the same. Then cycle the three tumblers together one number at a time, trying to unlock after each number turn. You may have to try ten times to unlock.

To RESET THE COMBO:

  • With the case open, and the current combo in place, hold down the shackle (the little grey or black button beside the combination numbers).
  • While holding this shackle down, rotate the numbers to the number YOU WILL REMEMBER. (Holding the shackle down allows the numbers to tumble without moving the divots.)
  • Let go of the shackle -these numbers are now associated with the divots.
  • Now your combination should be set to the number you wish.

If that doesn't work for you, you might as well get a new set of luggage. (I know, sad, but true) I would suggest going for a discounted set since luggage can get really expensive. And this time try remembering the combo.

Follow-up:

I was able to open my suitcase using the answer above. Here are a couple of tips:

The little hole or divot in the shaft was to the right of the wheel and hidden unless one pushes the wheel to the left while turning it. When all the shaft holes are lined up the lock would open by pushing the release mechanism tabs on either side of the lock.

Note that the release mechanism does not open by squeezing the center latch tabs together or pushing them apart. Instead one must move BOTH together to the right and the word OPEN will appear.

It is simple to find the model number for a piece of Samsonite luggage. Just open the suitcase, and you will find the number in the bottom-right corner of the lid.

The Samsonite Aeris suitcase does not come with a standard lock and key. You must use a code to open it with. The code usually comes with the suitcase when it is purchased.

Yes, HOWEVER- if it is locked, and TSA needs to inspect the inside of the luggage, they CAN break it open. You should leave it unlocked.

Put your ear to the luggage and twist the lock. Or if that doesn't work than use a chainsaw. Ha! Ha! Ha! I'm kidding! I hope I helped! Ooh! Or call the luggage store!

To open your VIP luggage that has a number spin lock just spin the number to the position of your combination. Your luggage will then open. This is very nice luggage and the spin lock is a very convenient feature.

Use the key that came with the suitcase.

With infinite patience, since the Samsonite factory for one doesn't keep track. Most people don't however use a totally random number for fear of forgetting what they chose. Birthdays are very popular so you might first try the owner's or the birthday of close relatives of the owner. Trying every possible birthday will only take 365 tries at most. After that, try a crowbar.

As a former luggage store owner I saw this problem a lot. Most luggage repair shops and a few that sell luggage will know how to open it. Basically it involves using a small device to "pick" the lock. There are some other ways, but I couldn't explain them here. You last choice would be to start at 0-0-0 and try the lock, then goto 0-0-1, try the lock, 0-0-2.... until you get to 9-9-9 and realize that the lock is actually broken and it will have to be broken open and then repaired. It may take a while, but it works. I hope if you try that method, it's not 4 digits.

The best way to open a combination lock is to enter the combination. If this isn't possible, a hacksaw or bolt cutter may do the trick.

The American Tourister Suitcase is made by Samsonite. It has a lock that consists of three dials, that form a combination chosen by the owner. If the owner forgets the combination, he can try to pick it open with a safety pin (one can find instructions for this on the Internet) or take it to a Samsonite Repair Center.
