Default 3DS game card loose normal?

Granted this could be a minor thing as it doesn't affect much of gameplay and all but I want to know if the loose game card can easily come off the 3ds once clicked and all. I do hear a little rattling sound when it shakes a little so is this normal?

The rattling sound is the pedometer or accelerometer, they are supposed to move and because of that they make a sound. Now what do you mean by loose game card? Would it fall off if you click the card to eject the game and turn your system upside down?

It happens to me while using DS game cards, they are kind of loose, but as long as the console reads it I think it's ok. If it is too loose just try not to turn upside down the 3DS. Your card holder must be really used, that may explain why it is loose.
