I believe anytime you have metal parts touching and moving against each other it can send out small electrical pulses that have the potential to interfere with a radio signal. I've heard of it happening before, but have never personally experienced it. I personally would not use metal to metal anywhere on a plane because these things cost way too much to risk trashing over something so esaily avoidable.
