How should I reattach these mounting/ground pads?
The USB ground/mounting sheath broke loose tonight when my phone fell off the seat while I was turning and tugged on it. I figured it would be an easy fix, but since this was $250 or so, I wanted to be sure I'd get it right. How does one go about fixing something like this that needs to hold up to abuse? The middle piece was a bit loose also, but I already touched up the soldering on those points. As soon as the solder on the 3 large pins melted, they lifted up on all but one trace connection on just one side of each pin. It still probably functions, but I'm not sure if it would hold up for long. I'm not too worried that it couldn't get enough current, since it is only a 5-10 watt usb port @12 volts, so only 1/3 amp or so would be going to each pin. Should I use a cut off chunk of paperclip and solder it sideways across each pad and also joining the usb pin in the middle? Then maybe finish with hot glue?
