The connecting pins can be screwed off the plug by hand. The twisted conductors have been screwed on the pins of the plug. The wire connected to the lamp holder comes off the lamp holder under force of 15,7N. During the fire test and the needle-flame test for 10 seconds on the material of the lamp holders the fire did not stop burning within 30 seconds and the falling fire drops burnt the paper placed underneath the sample (distance: 200 mm+- 5 mm).
