I just bought a suitcase, so the combination is 000 (I didn't touch the numbers) and I locked it by mistake. How do I open it?

enter image description here

  • If you know the combination why not use it? Also you can open it by forcing a ballpoint pen into the zip and then pushing it along. This does not damage the zip and you can close it again afterwards. – Calchas Oct 30 '16 at 21:28
  • I dont know combination, it was all time 000 when I buy it but I dont know how to open ..ps: I add image – Chymmi Oct 30 '16 at 21:31
  • Take it to TSA maybe? – DavChana Oct 30 '16 at 21:32
  • You can buy TSA keys if you want them ... – Calchas Oct 30 '16 at 21:34

    Been there, done that. Start with 001, 002, etc. It should take about 10 minutes to go through all the combinations with the three dials. Immediately write down what opens it :-) – Giorgio Oct 30 '16 at 21:45

First, these numeric locks are useless, see this video on how to Decode Luggage Locks. Second, your image is blurry but if I see it correctly that's a TSA 007 isn't it? Well, here's a video on how to pick TSA 007 locks.

Edit: How to unlock a briefcase lock and figure out combo another video on defeating the numlock.

Edit2: if you have a 3D printer, here are the TSA keys.

  • I didnt change combination, so I am looking for factory combination but obviously its not 000 – Chymmi Oct 30 '16 at 21:39
  • I edited a little, you can easily defeat the numeric lock. – chx Oct 30 '16 at 21:40

    Also theintercept.com/2015/09/17/… But all these links shouldn't be any surprise. If there is one master key in every airport in the USA, I can guarantee one is "lost" every day and crooks have been selling copies to each other since three days after they were distributed. – WGroleau Oct 30 '16 at 23:39

    Or, if you want security, keep it on (or in ;-) your body at all times. – gerrit Oct 31 '16 at 11:12

The default code is 000 but you have to open it by pressing down on the small button and then pulling open the mechanism.

ALL you need to do is keep on 000 and press the tsa lock towards the lock. It should open. I just received my replacement suitcase and had to go online to see why it also won't open. No instructions are ever given from the company .
