I can in fact actually safely say I do take extreme care with my audio and video equipment, no matter how cheap. Only once did they ever fall on the floor from 4 feet. And that was a year ago. If the glue keeps failing, there are designs to counter this. They could make the metal be sort of interlocking, or even solder the two pieces together, and then polish it and it would appear as one piece altogether.
But I am serious, I do take extreme care with my stuff. Even when putting the away I carefully wrap them back up into it's bag.
