Guitar Pickups are loose

Can anyone help me with loose guitar pickups - the whole pickup can slide out or in along with one of the screws. The lower screw still adjusts the height of the pickup by tightening it, but its as if it is not attached to anything.

seems like the springs are loosen. is your guitar used? did someone swap the pickups? he might have forgotten to put the springs back on the screws.

btw, are your pickups screwed on wood, or screwed on rings?

Thank you. The springs were not on correctly. Fixed and everything is fine.
Appreciate it.
