Question spring lock block?

hello there,
i was doing some service on my ibanez RG270 (LO/TRS floyd) and when i tried to put it all back together,the springs kept popping out of the total block now i have seen that there are blocks to keep the springs in place where could i get such block?
thanks in advance

Re: spring lock block?

no, this is kinda hard to explain but, with the spring you have the round side and the hook side, the hook side goes into the trem block, and on top of all the 'hooks' there is mostly a block to keep them from popping out, but i cant seem to find them anywhere , suggestions?
p.s. vox humana didnt have them

Re: spring lock block?

mine does NOT have threaded holes in it for a hold-down bar. Mine is a Lo-TRS2 so yours may be different.

Does your trem block have four small holes to put the spring hooks into and two larger holes for the two screws that will hold the spring retainer bar in place?

Re: spring lock block?

yeah, it has five holes, and i thought the screws could go in the second and fourth, but now that i have looked at them, they will be really small for the screws, so i guess i will be searching on then, thanks anyway
