    If you push down on the trem arm and look under the bridge plate on the backside of the bridge near the area where the trem arms snaps into to block - there is a small set screw which can be tightened.

    Adjust with 1.5 mm allen wrench (same as for the saddle screws).

    Thanks DrKev for helping. I had just gotten up and was enjoying my morning coffee and the brain wasn't engaged enough to think of the mm size on the tool!!!!

    Cheers

    Same way - its there but a bit harder to see because of the color of the block.

    There’s also an adjustment at the bottom of the trem block Which you can tighten and it will slightly push up on the trem arm as well.

    That helps helps keep the arm tight against the spring that holds it in place. It's not really meant to move the arm up and down, as far as I know.

    Yes I only said that it will “Push up against the trem arm“ not move it up-and-down
