Thatd be your locking nut, basically its what locks your tuning so that when you use the floyd it doesnt go radically out of tune every time.

They generally come in floyd equipped guitars but you can buy them as well.

Yep, practically every hardware manufacturer makes locking nuts. TS, why would you want one? They are only necessary on guitars with a double locking tremolo like a Floyd Rose, so if you don't have something like that, you won't need a locking nut.

And, if you don't have one and buy one, tuning will take a bit extra amount of time.
Granted, if your tuners suck and go of tune frequently, then I guess it makes sense...
it's all just coming back

If your neck is not prepared for a locking nut slot then forget it. Go for a set of locking tuners instead if you have a non-locking tremolo.
