Normally they have a thread, and they're simply screwed in. Turn them clockwise until they just nip the lip of the darkslide. If the thread has partly stripped, you can revive it for a short while by cutting a thin strip of plastic from a polythene bag. Poke the strip into the hole and screw the tang into the hole with the strip of polythene alongside it.
