Not including setup, it was about 10 seconds to solder those two connections. As tightly as those remotes are pressed together, I don't expect them to have problems unless I start sitting on the remote again.
Gorilla glue is a miracle compound.

I've found on mine, when bad.... it was the 2 smaller "Left & Right" joints that seemed to let loose.
