Is my Turbo trainer skewer broken?

    I was on the turbo last friday when I heard a cracking sound.
    Bike is ok.
    I looked at the skewer that comes with my Tacx trainer. I know this maybe difficult to describe but I'll try....
    The skewer end with the lever seems wobbly.....and Im not sure if it should be.
    When I go to undo or tighten the skewer I notice that the lever end wobbles.
    This maybe fine.....but Im reluctant to use my turbo just incase it isnt and that I need to buy another one.
    Can you check your TT skewers and let me know.
    Cheers all.

    If it's tight and the wheel won't move sideways when you push it, you're (probably) ok
