SAMSONITE SUITCASE, combination lock
We have a samsonite suitcase with a three digit lock on it. My daughter has changed the code inside the case and locked it. Tried every combination from 0 to 999.
Any suggestions gratefully received.

If you've really tried all the combinations then there's no hope, but probably you've passed it and not had the wheels exactly in line. These locks are not very sophisticated, and it's usually possible to decode them by working on one wheel at a time, looking for the position where there is a bit more play than the others. The difference is small - just move it sideways with your fingertip and watch. When you're convinced about the first wheel, move on to the second and third - but you may have to back-track once or twice. Be patient - good luck!
