Re: [NTLK] eMate hinge repair, no soldering idea

They are just simple copper wires, with little surplus length. If
you have or can get such a connector it should work. insulate any
exposed wire.
But the soldering involved is not particularly difficult, the
surface contact pads are far enough apart the even a soldering gun
could be used. Extra solder is usually not needed, be quick as
excess heat can cause the pad to loosen from the circuit board.
