Using paper clip to check for case head separation

How does this trick work? I'm assuming a 90 degree bend on the paper clip's end, then check for what? Will you feel a click or valley if you've got an imminent case head failure?

As an aside, if you've followed Vamint Al's finite element modeling activities, you'll have noticed he's got one that shows a highly polished chamber tends not to form sharp pressure rings, instead distributing the stretch over a somewhat greater length of wall. In another FEA he shows the additional bolt thrust produced due to polishing is only around 5%, IIRC? Not the big problem conventional wisdom makes it out to be.
