Rg1200 Trem Re-String Woes

Hey guys this is my first post over here. I'm having a bit of trouble trying to restring the D string on my RG1200. I believe its a Lo-Pro trem, I'm not sure exactly what model it is. Anyways, whenever I break the D string I unlock the saddle and try to pull out the string and it does not come out not matter how much I unscrew the saddle. On all the other strings they come out without a problem and I can install the string without a problem. Sorry for the noobish question, this is my first locking trem guitar. Any help is appreciated.

Re: Rg1200 Trem Re-String Woes

Simply push the small block that locks down your string with a screw driver or something similar. This is quite common actually. If you're still getting this problem pull out the small block entirely and see if there's any rust building up on it. If there is, clean it off, otherwise if it's clean and it just doesn't quite fit into the saddle properly, just file one side down a little.

(DO make sure you inserted the block properly with the small circle indentation facing towards the screw before you start to do anything with the block)
