Samsonite luggage, a trusted name in the travel industry for over a century, has been the go-to choice for many travelers worldwide. Known for their durability, style, and innovative features, Samsonite suitcases are designed to meet the ever-changing needs of today’s globetrotters.
One such innovation is the luggage lock combination, an essential feature that ensures the security of your belongings while in transit. Setting a unique combination for your luggage lock not only deters theft but also provides peace of mind knowing your personal items are safeguarded.
A question asked more often than you think: “I need to change the combination on my Samsonite luggage bag but I don’t know how.” Although all our cases do come with handy instructions to help you create your own combination code on your new luggage, we thought we would provide you with a video to make life a little easier.
Understanding Samsonite Luggage Combination Lock
A Samsonite combination lock consists of a three-dial code that can be set to a personal combination, eliminating the need for a key. This three-digit lock is designed to be user-friendly, allowing travelers to secure their belongings and access them quickly when needed.
When you purchase a new Samsonite suitcase, the combination lock is preset to a factory default setting, usually 0-0-0 or 1-2-3. It’s crucial to reset this to a personal combination as soon as possible to maximize the lock’s effectiveness.
Below are two options: a step-by-step guide and a video guide.
How to change the Samsonite combination from 000 to your own number
1: Rotate the three wheels on the lock to the current combination and open the luggage.
2: Dial the three wheels to 0-0-0, which is the default combination setting for American Tourister and Samsonite luggage
3: Press and hold the reset button on the side of the lock inside your luggage.
4: Turn the three wheels one at a time to a new, three-digit combination and release the reset button

Tips and Warnings
When choosing a secure combination, avoid easy-to-guess sequences like 1-2-3 or 0-0-0. Instead, consider a significant date, a lucky number, or any random sequence that would be difficult for others to guess but easy for you to remember.
Remembering your new combination is critical. Consider writing it down and storing it in a safe place at home, or use a secure password manager app on your phone. Just make sure not to store this information with your luggage.
Regularly changing your luggage combination enhances its security, especially if you frequently travel or use your luggage in shared storage spaces. This regular change makes it harder for anyone who might have observed your code to access your suitcase.
A word of caution about lost combinations:
if you forget your combination and can’t open your lock, you may need professional assistance. Some Samsonite models have a reset button, but others might need a locksmith or even a replacement lock. Therefore, it’s crucial to store your combination securely to avoid such inconvenience.
