Edge Pro bridge problem: About that ring inside the tremolo hole

Hi guys. I am not sure if this is already discussed somewhere here. I tried the Search function but didn't get any which can be helpful so I decided to make a thread about it.

After semi-excessive whammy antics on my Edge Pro, I always notice that the ring inside the tremolo hole is raised up. See my diagram here :



The ring is not supposed to be raised so my temporary solution was to rotate the screw found at the back as seen here :



Note also that that thing in the arrow of the 2nd picture is wiggle and somewhat loose when while I am in this situation.

While I use a pick to rotate the ring downwards, I rotate the screw at the back in an opposite direction. I continue to do so until I've reached a spot where the ring is not raised and at the same time, both the ring and the screw at the back are tight.

However, once I get to abusive whammy antics again, the same thing happens.

Is there something wrong with my bridge? Or am I doing something wrong? PLease help me to find a permanent solution for it.

Thanks

I made my own tool for tightening the pocket. I looked through some spare metal hinges and brackets sitting I had and found this one to be almost a perfect fit, just a little wide, so i shaved a bit off one side and now it fits perfectly in the slot with no room to slip.

I made my own out of the teeth of a baby fur seal. If you make your own tooth tool make sure you club the seal first otherwise they fight like hell.

Re: Edge Pro bridge problem: About that ring inside the tremolo hole

Thanks for all the answers guys.

As of now, I really am afraid to remove the bridge and put it back again. There's no guitar luthier within a 10 mile radius from my place so I guess I have no choice but to do the same old method that I do for the time being.

On the brighter side, at least I know now how will it be fixed. Thank you again
