Default (Q) - Lockscreen widgets. How?

Hey guys, iam no novice to Android, did a ton of modding/theming/flashing on my MDK s4, and my s3 before that. But for some reason I can't put my own widgets on the lockscreen.
Yes, in security settings I have multiple widgets enabled. But for some reason I can't remove the stock widget and add my own. It's super frustrating. Normally I use Apex launcher but iam sticking with blinkfeed for the moment. So so I need to use a different launcher to get my own widgets? Or is there some other trick? All I want is to use dash clock as my lock screen widget, then poweramp and my news apps to the right. Thanks.
