Horn/Airbag issue

When putting on the leather steering wheel the other day, I noticed the horn contact strip was coming off.
I currently have it taped up with electrical tape, but that is not a permanent solution.
I am thinking of using a CA( Cyanoacrylate or super glue), but I know some can do damage to plastics.

Any recommendations on what to use, be it a CA or something else?

If it were me, i'd clean the area with rubbing alcohol or plastic cleaner and then use a small amount of J.B. Weld. Double check to make sure it won't damage the plastic but if it were me and the location isn't visible, I would not hesitate to use it.

I'd use superglue before the epoxy, you know in seconds if it holds. Neither will hurt the plastic. I myself simply drilled new holes carefully as to location to use very small sheetmetal screws to positively hold it down better then Nissan ever did. That is a crazy stupid flimsy way to hold that contact strip in place.

CA is inert to most plastics.
