ZR Tremolo issue

So, first ZR Trem ever. I'm loving it, keeps in tune better than any trem I've had before (except for maybe the OFR on my old Kramer 1984 Baretta).

Just one problem. At first, the trem arm wouldn't stay in, even when fully tightened. It would slide back out.

A few days later, I tried putting it back in, tightening it down, and now it doesn't come off. Ever. Even after I unwind the little thing that holds it down, it seems stuck in there. It WORKS perfectly fine, but whenever the arm moves there is an annoying squeek.

Any ideas? I'm new to the ZR.

Re: ZR Tremolo issue

The ZR has a threaded bar, it screws in.
