Morning all!

What other way is there telling if clarinet is lined up correctly. The upper bridge key is wider than the lower, so I’m wondering if the issues I’ve been having are down to incorrect line up?

Many thanks

If the bridge mechanism doesn't perfectly align, I've always assembled the clarinet such that the tone holes on the upper and lower joints are in line.

 

This website suggests lining up the key posts:
