When doing a scaffold removal the discovery of a loose knuckle does not always mean someone wasn't paying attention and forgot to tighten one. If a knuckle is not squared up on both poles when tightened then one side will be loose upon loosening the opposite side. Always be alert for sliders!!!!

you are very correct sir it is my habit to always tighten the "face" or horiz. part first and then the side that holds the vertical post this practice make the slidding knuckle prob. much less likley
