This is the case I currently have:
This is a picture of the lock:
If you'll notice the lock (from left to right):
(Item 1) There is a rectangular piece that can swing outward (Item 2)
There are 3 rollers with numbers (Item 3) There is a square button
that protudes out like in the picture
This is what happened:
I received my package, unpacked it, took out the case, unlatched it
(NOTE I did not open the case yet) and noticed (Item 1, the retangular
piece) is swung outward. I also noticed that the (Item 2, the 3
numbers), were set to 0,0,0 (I think). Now here comes the stupid
part. I press (Item 1) in so that it is swings back into place
(flushed with the case , like in the picture).
Now I can't open the briefcase =[
The next thing I tried was the brute force method. I started at 000
and went up to 999, each time pressing (Item 3, the square button).
Each time the button would not go in. I tried this TWICE (going from
000 to 999 TWICE).
NOTE: I'm not sure how to operate the lock.
NOTE: I do not know the combination.
Can someone help me to open this case? From reading this board I know
that I can call a locksmith but that would cost me a lot of money.
Also, can someone tell me how this lock work so I can correctly
attempt to brute force the lock (if I'm not brute forcing it
