well you can either screw it tighter (carefull not to snap it) or wrap a piece of teflon (if you dont have that electrical) tape around the grooves, preferebly teflon tape. Its for plumbing and you can get it for like 70 cents a roll at any hardware store.

I wouldn't recommend this, you could overtorque the bar and break it if you're not careful.

What I DO recommend is Lock-Tite, it's a thread fastener, it'll keep it from coming unthreaded with general use but if you need to you can still unscrew the bar with a little bit of force.

like I said, be carefull or you WILL break it

but locktite isnt a good idea either because you cant move it at all and once you do you're back to square one


get some teflon tape and you're good

Agreed, teflon tape will work excellently.

Put a spring in the hole then attach the bar. A ball-point pen spring should do. These trem systems were originally designed for that. That way, you can put the bar wherever you want and it will stay. Tape or w/e around the threads will just wear out eventually anyway.
