Molex Connectors - Interconnect Solutions

"Never Mix Electrical and Mechanical Connections" (probably from tektronix) this is a rule, more so for power connectors. Strain relief prevents mechanical stress from reaching the connector joints/spring metal. The wire terminations are also cushioned by strain relief.

The PCB and Product Engineering should ensure that the mechanical stress or load is not a job/function/role of the connector. At higher currents a small contact resistance can generate a lot of heat, worsening the contact further, similar to thermal runaway of Power Transistors.
