If you receive your bag locked, please set it to 0-0-0 and slide the lock, where the universal TSA key would go in. You’ll find a little reset button to the left of the three digits for resetting them to something you can remember easily. You shall also receive the lock instructions with your luggage purchase. Like all Samsonite products, the Freeform also comes with a limited warranty of ten years for defects in workmanship and materials. The thing with the warranty though, is in case of a problem you need to ship it to the company for an evaluation, can’t be taken to a store. Samsonite will not replace the wheels or other damage if you can’t prove it is not because of misuse. But overall these are very good quality suitcases with a premium look and feel by Samsonite, a global brand that you really can’t go wrong with.
