SATA connector flimsy!

The SATA connector on MB is flimsy. Its impossible to secure the cable in the socket - it appears loose. And trying to push it in securely likely broke one of the side hinges of the socket and now the whole connection is even more loose!
So I had to return the item. Please consider pre-attaching the SATA cable (WITH GLUE) to the MB so it does not come loose..
Thanks for listening!

I managed to rip out a SATA connector from my motherboard.

Had to take the motherboard out to add a new heatsink, was pulling all the cables out but didnt unclip the connector for the SATA drive. My motherboard now has 5 SATA slots instead of 6.

What equipment is yours, can you take a photo for me? Our equipment has only one SATA slot and the SATA cable is very easy to pull out.

The U500-H I just received had the SATA cable connector (The end that attaches to the HD or SSD) completely covered in GLUE!!! It was ruined out of the box. Use TAPE to secure the thing during shipment if you must. However it should already be built into the carrier that the HD or SSD will attach to!! Also, I can NOT upgrade the 128 gig SSD that is already on the mother board. The screw that hold it in place was put on so tight that it had completely ruined the head of the screw and it can not be removed, You really need to have some form of Quality control. There was glue all over most of the components. Basically just a block of junk now!!

It is prone to loosening during transportation, so we have reinforced the components, thank you for your advice, and we are working hard to improve.
