    Ripping my uUSB off - suggestions for another part

    I have a Teensy 3.2-based board that's working well. I just ordered 110 boot loaders for the next batch.

    And I just managed to rip the uUSB socket off my board. It's happened twice now in handling 10 or so boards as I've developed the boards and enclosures.
    I am man-handling the boards with USB plugged in while I work on the enclosure attachments. (I won't with my one remaining working board)

    In 5 years, I have yet to tear a uUSB off of a Teensy board (or any other), and I manhandle them plenty with no enclosure.

    I'm looking at swapping out my current part with a new one, possibly this one with through-hole mounts

    I note the Teensy 3.2 has no through-hole mounting, but has 4 mounting solder pans in a rough rectangle.
    I also like the fact that the socket sticks out a bit from the board edge.

    I'd welcome any advice on part selection think I can accommodate just about anything.
    @Paul, a reference to the Teensy 3.2 uUSB B socket part would be great.

    Thanks!

    The T_3.5 and newer parts use a through hole version connector.

    <edit>: well it has 4 GND legs in the PCB - the signal pins are still surface mount.

    I see that on my Teensy 3.6 now. It look rock-solid!
    That looks like this one that I was considering above
    Thanks!
