Hi I have just reset the combination (3 thumbwheels, 0-9 on each thumbwheel) on a pair of CARLTON SUITCASEs. These are the hard shell type with 2 wheels, 2 cam-action side hook/clasps and 1 cam-action top combination hook/clasp with folding handle.

TOOLS- 1 bright light(I used a pencil LED torch), 1 thumb (preferably still attached).

METHOD- have the case facing you, so you can read the CARLTON on the lock, shine the light on the righthand side of a thumbwheel, if you look closely in the half millimetre gap, you can reflect light from metal below. if you push the thumbwheel round 1 full turn, you will have noticed a slot which didn't reflect. Align all 3 slots, and read the pattern. Because this isn't the combination, but the barrels are in the right order, so keep them in this pattern, then rotate all 3 thumbwheels at once. When the slot aligns with the internal mechanism, the button will retract and the case will open. This procedure takes about 30/45 seconds. Once the case is opened you can reset the combination in 10 seconds. On the underside of the combination unit is a metal tab, slide tab to the right, reset the combination, write it down in a safe place, slide metal tab back to the left, finished. I hope these instructions are useful, and i hope your not an airport baggage handler...

How do you get the combination to a combination lock when the combination was forgotten?

There isn't really a way to unlock it if the combination was forgotten. You should always right down the combination the first thing you do, and hide it somewhere.IMPROVED:It depends on the type of lock. There might be a code of the lock and many times a locksmith can determine the combination of a lock with that or by other means. If it is a Master Padlock there is a technique for that which can be found on YOUTUBE.

If you have forgotten the code to your suitcase's combination lock, you can either use a hammer and screwdriver to disengage the latch, or if you have an immense amount of patience, you can set the dials to 0-0-0 and increment them, one digit at a time, until the lock opens. If you are quick and agile, you may be able to open the lock in ten to twenty minutes, however, if it is a four or five digit lock, it might take you several days to a week.
