Spanish term or phrase: a prueba de extracción
From a series of sentences on an Excel spreadsheet for a company that manufactures ducts, trunking, cable routing solutions (for offices it seems).

This from a section on "furniture boxes" (the term used on the company's website):

Características de la caja de mobiliario
La caja es ampliable ofreciendo respuesta a todas las necesidades.
Robustez en la fijación a mobiliario.
***La caja queda fijada a prueba de extracción de la clavija***.

Could this this mean that the box can be provisionally installed to test plug removal? Sorry there's no further context or pictures but it is what it is

withstands (plug) removal

I think it means the case/casing/box remains fixed and will not loosen, even though the plug is plugged in and unplugged frequently.
