My new Spectrum FX has the Bendmaster trem on it

I have noticed that on the fine tuner fingers, there are two holes that both seem to be designed to take strings. I've currently got her strung up through the hole that is easily accessible by stringing through from the back.

The second hole, closer to the fine tuner screw, isn't really very easy to get a string through, but it is angled backwards slightly more than the front one, to, I assume, make it easier to string from the front of the guitar.

My question is - Does anyone use these second holes? It would make the fine tuning more coarse, but I think it is too fine anyway through the front hole.

Should think that if for some reason the saddle has to be moved to the front hole on the base plate the rear string  hole will come into play.

A little tip on restringing that bridge.

Pull the fat E,A,D all the way in and then bend it at right angles at the hole before hooking under the tang before the roller. Stops the tang snapping off especially with heavier gauge strings.
