Keep your fingers under the jaws next time when testing and you won't have that issue

This is what I was going to say. Lift the loose jaw and test that way, it’s much easier on your fingers! laugh

Yeah you will.

You may not think so right now, but there will come a time that you say to yourself, You'll know it's you because it will be in your voice: "Self, That can't happen twice, I can check the click just li......... #%$*#$^($%"

The start of every season I just go ahead and put my hand in one. I look at this way, if I don’t get caught after the first week or so I start thinking about getting caught and then get caught. So I say the heck with it and get it out of the way. If you’re tired it will wake you up. If you’re hurting somewhere it will take that hurt away. Sorta a win/win situation.

Kinda like keying your truck after a new paint job. Gonna get scratched eventually, may as well get rid of the worry.
