Default twist deformation...

I need help. I can't seem to get this prop fin to twist. I want to know how to use the twist deformer to twist this. When I create the twist deformer and change the angles, nothing happens. Why not???

you more than likely do not have the divisions in the geometry necessary for a twist. This has been mentioned in a few other posts as well.
