EDGE Locking studs

Hello fellas, haven't been here for a while but here I am with another question. How do locking studs work? I've googled everything I can and here is my problem. On my RG550 a luthier got rid of the locking studs mechanism cause it was broken, I mean all the threads were messed up due to previous owners abuse, so my studs are basically nonlocking. So recently I bought two locking studs from a guy for a low price he never used them and didn't need them. I'm not in a hurry to change them but heres a thing. When I put the allen wrench in the stud it kinda rotates freely and nothing happens. There are (Jeesus it is hard to explain) these little...you know the things that are supposed to go out of the bottom of the stud. But they don't move. So is it broken, or do I have to put it in the guitar in order to make these things move or did I just got scammed with some bull**** studs. So there they are on the picture and thanks in advance!

Re: EDGE Locking studs

No it's not that, I even tried a few other sizes just to make sure even tho I was pretty sure about the size at the start.

P.S. OK fellas, officially I'm a retard. peromucho7 had point it was just the smallest f-ing allen wrench, and I thought that it needed a bigger one. So yeah this could be even deleted.
