Jem tremolo arm help

Hey guys, i just got a JEM 555 for a crazy prize! only thing is the bar wont stay inside the tremolo, i dont know exactly what kind of tremolo it is, but im thinking edge 2, i checked the parts and they look exactly like in the parts catalog so i dont think anything is broken. how do i insert the bar so that it stays in? it doesnt have any threading like on my fenders.


the bar looks just like the one in the picture.

There are 2 allen head set screws on the back side of the arm holder. 1 you adjust with a dive, the other with a pull up.
