Pearl Flexi Rattle

I have just rechecked @Max Spoofing , remove the top cap and hold the screw knob with the handle to stop it from moving, the razor makes no sound when skaken, this makes me think there is a "free" collar holding in the screw knob to stop it falling out, when tightened it will float, I don't think it's anything to worry about.
The Rex has a sprung fit assembly which does the same thing by gripping the internal tube of the handle, albeit probably much more expensive to manufacture.
I can live with it as it does not detract from the shave for me.
Mine still makes a sound if I remove the top cap and hold the screw at the bottom. I emailed shaving time to see if they had any tips but they assured me it was normal and edited the listing to describe the sound.

Tbh if I hadn't read on this forum that it might of been an issue then I would have just cracked on and assumed it was normal. Instead I opened the box and started throwing it around looking for imperfections.

Does the rattle have any impact? No
Does it shave great? Yes
Would I buy it again? Yes
Am I going to keep it? Definitely

Followed Tony'schin fix taking it from 6 to just past 1 and
this has fixed it. Brilliant. Thanks. I am really glad I didn't send it back now.
Brilliant, did you squeeze the top cap a few times to the bottom plate when it was on #6, or did the spring just seat itself?
Mine still has a very light noise when shaken really hard vertically, horizontally - zilch/nada.
For what it costs I think it a brammer!
It's up next week for a proper run out, then next month on a head to head with a few of my other adjustable's.
Really glad the fix worked for you.(y)

Hi. I did squeeze the top cap on 6. I daresay if I shook it hard enough it would rattle. I couldn’t cope with it as it was everytime I rinsed it rattle rattle. I am one of those who hear every rattle in a car dash board. I think they based the film The quiet place on me. Very recommended film. Thanks again

Wait till you get older, you won't even hear the water running in the sink.
