The lock at the bridge is what holds the string in place. If you undo that it will pop out. All I ever did with mine was to String it up and wail on it a bit to stretch the strings and then retune and thats it.
To get it back in tune undo the lock nut at the neck tune it up normally then retighten the lock nut and then use the fine tuners to dial it in.
YA GOTTA HIT IT ON THE ONE

Check out my website. Their is a page with specific instructions for changing strings on a floyd rose equipped guitar. Enjoy!
