Why does this DC connector have holes at the ends of the pins?

The holes are their to provide more reinforcement to the wires directly attached to the DC jack if it is not mounted on a PCB and is attached to a external panel or is left hanging.

One can thread the wire through the DC jack and then twist it and solder it for a robust connection.
