Don’t know what to do with them. Tried to wiggle my stick a bit yesterday, but nah.
I would remove it for transport.
You're probably going to be ok leaving it in (turned towards the jack), but it's an unnecessary opportunity for something to get damaged or bent if your case/gig bag doesn't give enough room.
If the tremolo bar sticks up enough to actually prop the case lid up, then I would definitely take it off. I always keep a roll of painter's tape around anyway - to cover the trem hole in order to keep the spring from falling out whenever I remove the tremolo bar...
I flip mine around backward so the bar lays flat on the body like so:
I used to have a pop-in bar on my '93 Plus Deluxe, and that loaded straight into the block as opposed to at a backward angle, so I did have to take the bar out every time - I eventually replaced with an American Std screw-in two-point bridge.
Welcome!!! I always take it off.
I almost always leave mine in .... turned to the back over the body...
First "adjustment" I make on a new Strat is deck the bridge and play it like a hardtail. If I want a bar I use one of my floyd equipped guitars. So no ........I don't leave the bar on in the case.
If it's jutting against the case or gig bag I remove it. Course I have a couple replacements because they tend to fo missing that way.
I'm not a big fan of the vibrato, so I don't always have it installed, but I always take it off when putting the guitar in the case. On my Bigsby loaded guitars, I do find that rotating the handle toward the bottom of the guitar works just fine.
Scientists at Fender have announced that as the result of ongoing research and development commenced in 1954, they anticipate developing a Stratocaster case that will accommodate the vibrato arm by early 2033.
Nice Strats! Will you tell us which models they are?
Right. Output jack.

Those were just photos that were in my phone as examples of how I leave the bar on....
On, or you may loose your spring. Some don't care for that.
Which cases are all talking about mine are the Fender mouldered type.
I’m surprised no one has contacted Fender support for an official answer to this dilemma.
Mine is molded also, and does not have springs or anything like that, you just push it in till it clicks (loud). Specs are "2-Point Deluxe Synchronized Tremolo with Pop-In Arm". I'm going to leave it disconnected until I need it in a song part.
I don’t think that the tremolo arm could mess with string height or intonation.
It’s best practice to remove the bar when putting the guitar in its case as this guarantees that it won’t compress into the guitar and possibly damage it.
Always off when in the case.
