I have a modern 1965 Fender Mustang RI. It was missing the tremolo arm, so I ordered an official Fender replacement part.

The new arm does *not* have any threads, and the rocker it fits into is not threaded, either. As a result, the tremolo arm flops down when it's not in use.

I'd like to rig up something so that the arm stays in a relatively stationary location, maybe secured with some rubber grommets. The only thing I can think to do is use my Dremel tool grinder to reduce the diameter of the arm where is fits into the rocker.

I've already tried electrical and Scotch tape, but these experiments didn't pan out. What should I do?

SOLVED! There's a grub screw at the end of the cigar-shaped rocker. Didn't see it there until someone on another site mentioned it.
