    While your waiting for the new tuners, try to poke in a fatter string to lower the locking pin. Way easier than swapping tuners. I set up a Jackson USA with locking Hipshots and had the same thing happened, it happens with locking tuners. seriously just screw back in the locking thumb wheel, then unscrew a few turns, push in a thick string. The easiest is a wound string with a unwound core exposed as it will give you something to hold.

    Have you actually tried to push the pin down using another string/small allen key or screwdriver? I think that will solve the issue, then you won't have to worry about the replacement - and when it arrives, just keep it in case you ever need one for future.

    This was literally the first thing suggested 4 pages ago, so don't get your hopes up.

    He tried that and it made a volcano erupt so now he's wisely refraining from intervention.

    If you can fix it yourself then who cares?

    Can you post a video of the issue or something

    Did you actually try this yet, though? It may fix your problem before the package even arrives.
