Do you loosen the tension screw, or just have at it?

I loosen to get the strings off, then snug them when stringing, and tweek them as I get up to pitch.

No need to loosen tension screws unless the tuners are hard to turn. Screws should be tight enough to hold tuning but not too tight. Just have at it....................

I've never loosened anything , I just turn the tuner to loosen the string. Do a search on this site and on YouTube for restringing your ukulele ,you'll find lots of info.

Thanks all. I've been in the "just have at it" camp but began to wonder if I've been messing anything up.
