Default How strong is the circle pad?

After seeing this image here.

I'm worried if that same thing could happen to my 3DS. I'm just wondering how strong the circle pad is as I've been using my 3DS for the past one and a half years now?

Also can anyone explain to me what are all the parts of the 3DS circle pad and how that plastic is molded inside the circle pad?

Unless you have a defective model, the circle pad should hold up fine.

Don't yank on it and it should last.
