You need to use an allen key, if you don't know what that is seach "allen key" on google and show pictures.

If you a bigger problem with your floyd rose whammy bar, you can go to your local shop and buy a ned whammy arm + a socket which goes into the floyd rose, and so you can change the intire "arm" part of the floyd rose.. but start with the first option

Looks like you have to remove your strings and take the floyd out to tighten it..

Yeah agreed with oed, well on my guitar i don't have to take it out to adjust, but seems you have to, bad luck mate, but while doing so you can also adjust string height and lubricate the pivot screws for the floyd rose.

Is removing and putting back the floyd rose a pain in the ass.

I would not say that, I think it's pretty easy. I do it every time I change strings..

It was for me.
Why'd you take the thing out when you put on new strings though? I don't think it's necessary.
Actually, taking out any floating trem is a pain in the ass, mainly 'cause of the setup required after. Unless you use a Tremol-no or something.

^Setting it up is a breeze. It's basic mechanical principles at work.

TS: You could also chisel out that shelf. It seems to serve no purpose, and if your guitar is not some vintage this-or-that collectible then it'll not hurt the value at all.

I take it out to better clean the fretboard and the floyd itself..
And I think it's as much work to change each string individually (I don't use a "Tremol-no").

Begin with removing your strings then just take the springs off and it's out..

Is It Possible to leave the strings on but have them really slack and remove the floyd rose.
