Hi , ive got a Kahler trem on my '82 MIJ Fender Strat , and the threads for the locking nut have been stripped a bit , so I cant fasten the nuts tight enough for it to clamp the strings , thus its virtually as if I dont even have the locking nut there.

Is there anything I can do to tighten the hole , or keep them fastened. (obviously I cant just go pouring super glue in there as I have to be able to undo the nuts at any point)

Thanks , Alexander.

yeah its the screws used to clamp down the little metal things , Im pretty sure its happened because of over tightening , thus tearing the threads.

Yeah, you'll need to buy new ones, over-tightening will do that to the screws.

new screws arent too expensive.
you can ebay a whole new locking nut for under $15 US
