How many times can I plug in an SSD hard drive without degrading the contacts

I've heard that an SSD drive can only be removed a couple hundred times, before wear causes the SSD's SATA connector to fail.

Is this correct. I'd like to be able to remove my drive for security reasons? And is there a particular ready that is suited for the job?

    Get a SATA III extension cable, like this:

    (Make sure you get a male-to-female cable.)

    Then you can plug-and-unplug from the middle connection, if you know what I mean, and if the cable breaks, you can get a new one.
