Rimowa Luggage Lock

 




Rimowa’s TSA approved locking system is an invaluable tool for keeping your packed goods safe from any handling outside of airport security. Here are a list of ways in which you can properly set your lock, or troubleshoot lock issues if a problem occurs:

Salsa Air & Salsa Deluxe Lock Setting

Salsa Air Lock Step 1: Find out the current code for the luggage piece. If you have a new piece of luggage this is usually pre-set to 000.

Step 2: Before beginning to set your lock remove the clear plastic covering that may still be covering your 3-digit tumbler.

Step 3: Find your zipper pull lever. It is the small circular lever located right next to the triple digit tumbler. Pull this lever counterclockwise- if you have the Salsa Air, rotate whichever direction is most comfortable. It is multi-directional- as you prepare to enter your new lock code.

Step 4: As you continue to hold your zipper pull lever, begin to rotate each digit of your three-digit code into the tumbler. Make sure that each digit is securely centered on the dial. When confident that your code has securely been imputed, release the lever pull. You have now successfully set your lock.



Limbo, Topas, Stealth, and Titanium Lock Setting

Salsa Air Lock Similar to the Salsa Air and Salsa Deluxe locks, these collections’ locking systems only slightly differ. They contain a dual-action locking system, which means you must set two locks on your trunk*. You will also be holding down a button rather than a lever when setting your locking mechanism.

Step 1: Find out the current code for the luggage piece. If you have a new piece of luggage this is usually pre-set to 000.

Step 2: Find the small push-button located right next to the triple digit tumbler. Push this button in, and hold it as you prepare to enter your new lock code.

Step 3: As you continue to hold the button down, begin to rotate each number of your three-digit code into the tumbler. Make sure that each number is securely centered on the dial. When confident that your code has securely been imputed, release the button. You have now successfully set your lock.

Step 4: Repeat process on the second lock closure to ensure that both locks have been set correctly.

*While both locks are independently functioning, it is up to you to decide if you prefer each lock closure to have a separate three digit combination. While this increases your luggage’s security, it also may be more challenging to remember. Choose at your own preference.

Resetting Your Lock

There are a few different reasons which you may be needing to troubleshoot when trying to reset your lock. If you need to reset your lock to a more convenient combination you may review the above steps, taking into account that the number must be set to your previous combination before beginning the process of setting your combination.

However, If your lock combination will not open it may be for any one of these three reasons:

1. You have forgotten the luggage combination, in which case you may call our Kaehler repair center to replace your lock.

2. Occasionally, when opening your bag to check its contents, the TSA may accidentally roll their finger across your combination tumbler, thereby changing a digit on the lock. To check and see if this is the case, simply try opening your bag by attempting your combination only with the last number, or the second to last number in your code one digit less than the original combination was set. Try this when your combination has ceased to work directly after a trip as this is a surprisingly frequent case.

3. The third reason, and perhaps least common, is the result of a defective lock. If this is the case, you may send this to our Kaehler repair center with the assurance that the issue will be followed up with by our authorized repair personnel. Rimowa’s 5 year warranty will be a great benefit if your lock is determined defective.
