While shopping online for something else, I saw
where a lot of people were looking for some type
of clicker device to train birds, dogs, rabbits and
other pets. It seems most want a clicker which
costs as near nothing as possible. This might be
it if the sound works for their pet.

Step 1: Three parts, plus glue, is what you need.

You will need a length of cord  long enough to span your
hand three times. Once across, once back and once more
for the "tail".  A flat lace from a sports shoe works good for
this, and the lace tips keep everything neat. I didn't have
it on hand for making this one.  The clothes pin or laundry
pin you choose should have a smooth body with no grooves
near the end that you pinch. This will save wear on your
fingers later. The small black item is a spring loaded string
keeper from a  jacket or hoodie. They are available at
sewing supply places. Those are the three parts....now
add glue.
<p>Just a little confused here. Does it make the noise when you press the clothes pin and let it snap back?</p>
<p>It is intended to. The noise is not harsh and may not even be </p><p>enough for some needs. I sanded the tip that goes under my </p><p>thumb so it was smooth enough to slip off easily and give a </p><p>distinct, although not thunderous, click. Suppose you could </p><p>alter the sound my attaching a couple of metal thumbtacks</p><p>or hard plastic squares. Hope this answers your question,</p>
