Edge Trem question

On my UCEW, the high E string is a bit towards the treble side of the neck. Close enough to the edge where sometimes I pull it off the edge. And this is most noticeable in the higher frets. I tried moving the neck a little bit but there isn't much play there. I did notice the trem knife edges aren't sitting in the middle of the anchor. Actually, the trem is a bit towards the treble side so I was wondering if it is safe to loosen up the strings and move the trem up towards the bass side. That would help center up the strings enough, but I don't know if this is an option. Are the knife edges held captive so they can't move side to side?

It should pull over enough. If it doesn't, pull the neck and relieve sand the side of the neck pocket that needs it until it does pull over enough.
