Default 3ds games popping out?

I heard stories that their 3ds cards are coming out despite it being them not touching it.

For me, I accidentally pulled my 3ds game card instead of pushing it and it managed to come out and then I pressed it again on the 3ds and it came out instead and then I pushed it again and everything seems fine. I tried shaking it while it was stuck a little and its still fine and I got no errors and all.

That said, I'm a little worried about this since it might have broken the spring there. So can anyone explain me the parts of the 3ds slot and how it works?

I'm not sure how that can happen, sounds weird

I have owned a DS since the original grey DS, and this never happened to me

same thing with me, not once it happened to my units.

@TS
just be careful not to accidentally or forcibly pull the cart out

I just want to know the inside parts of the game card slot and where that spring plays in whether it'll get loose that the card will suddenly come out or not?

that won't happen because?

Look isn't there someone who's explained how the game card is inserted to the 3ds and how the game is locked?

because to both get it in and out, you need to push it a little further so it clicks
thats probably why theres a little indent on the back of the card, something probably slots in there to keep the cartridge in place
