CMOS Battery Clip?

Hello! I have read many stories about peoples CMOS battery clips breaking. I am wondering how they break exactly? Can't it break on its own?

I am wondering because I was on the phone withe Asus technical support today and they told me to re install the cmos battery. However because of all these stories I'm scares of breaking the clip. I want this motherboard to look perfect and serve me for years to come.

    lol I've never broken one, which is amazing since these gorilla hands have broken everything else there is to break on a motherboard.
  2. Well in a laptop with frequent travel mine has managed to break off. I wouldn't see how you would break one in a stationary desktop set up however.
