hang it by the barrel hook on your index finger, click it with a flip of your fingernail against the barrel

or with a small wood dowel or such doesn't take much of a tap

do it over a soft carpet or something just in case

Go to Vicknair Restorations website and do a search for his video on this. It is excellent. It shows what it shouldn't sound like and also what it should.

It is a strong indicator that the rib(s) is loose somewhere, even tho' it may be very hard to see.
