The connection for the continuous test is to the handle.
I think 'connection' here means the point of application of load( in the form of force/vibration/impact, etc) to the door to be tested.
Building products are normally subjected to simulated tests in the lab whereby lab equipments are used to simulate normal conditions of wear & tear, impact, loadings which are continuously applied to a sample to be tested.
