Floyd Question

I have a RG570 and when I use my whammy bar,it moves in the socket.How do I get rid of that play?

I want the whammy bar to rotate freely but I also want it to be tight in the bridge socket without moving around.

Can anyone help me here?

open the trem cavity cover, get a 10mm tube wrench and tighten the nut that holds the arm-socket beneath the trem baseplate.
