Tumi Luggage Lock





Tumi has provided a first class locking system that comes in two different styles: the built-in TSA lock that is featured on their hard-shell casing lines, and the external TSA lock that is more commonly seen throughout the rest of their collections. Here you will find how to properly set your lock, or troubleshoot lock issues if a problem occurs.

 

Tumi Vapor and Tegra Lock Setting

Tumi Luggage Lock

Tumi Vapor and Tegra feature the internal locking system that comes on Tumi's hard-shell casing. To properly set your lock, follow these steps.

Step 1: Start by making sure every digit on your dial is set in the preset starting code. If you have a new piece of luggage this is usually pre-set to 000.

Step 2: Make sure zipper pulls are securely place in their holder in the locking mechanism. This is important as they will be crucial later in the locking process at telling you whether you have successfully set your lock.

Step 3: Find the small circular divot at the lower left hand corner of the lock, and apply pressure with a ballpoint pen, continuing to hold it as you adjust each number on your three digit dial.

Step 4: When you have fully secured each number of your code, and are confident each number is set in the center of the tumbler, you may release your ballpoint pen’s pressure on the lock’s divot hole.

Step 5: Press down on the large release button that is located to the right of the Tumi logo. If the zippers jump out from the zipper pull you will know you have correctly set your lock.

Tumi Luggage Lock

This removable exterior clipping lock is featured on a number of Tumi’s collections, and though similar to Tumi’s internal locking system, the external lock varies slightly in the steps it takes towards setting your combination. Follow these steps to successfully set your lock.

Step 1: Start by making sure every digit on your dial is set in the preset starting code. If you have a new piece of luggage this is usually pre-set to 000.

Step 2: Turn the lock so that you are looking at the word “Tumi” facing towards you. At the bottom edge there will be a small divot. Apply pressure to the divot with a ballpoint pen, continuing to hold it as you adjust each number on your three digit dial.

**If you are struggling to apply pressure to the divot with the pen and change numbers on the dial all at once, try and stand your pen upwards on a table surface and push the lock’s divot down on the ballpoint pen, giving you two hands to hold and turn the tumbler.

Step 3: When you have fully secured each number of your code, and are confident each number is set in the center of the tumbler, you may release your ballpoint pen’s pressure on the lock’s divot hole.

Step 4: Press down on the large release button that is located to the right of the Tumi logo. If the lock’s clip opens, you will know you have correctly set your lock.

 

Resetting your Lock

There are a few possible reasons your Tumi lock may not be working. Here are four reasons why your lock may not be setting correctly:

1. You did not apply enough even pressure to the divot via your ballpoint pen when you were setting your lock. In this case, you must reset your lock, tracing back your combination one digit at a time to see if it was set or left at it’s pre-set number.

2. You may have released your button before finishing your combination change. This means that you will have to reset your lock. Trace back your combination one digit at a time to see if it was set or left at it’s pre-set number.

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

4. The last 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. Tumi’s 5 year warranty will be a great benefit if your lock is determined defective.
