  • Patent number: 7045938
    Abstract: The invention relates to a reflector lamp and to a method for producing such a reflector lamp, especially a simplified method for fixing the lamp (2) in the reflector (1). The gasket (22) of the lamp base (21) is disposed in the cavity (13) of the reflector neck (12) in such a manner that the at least one power lead (71, 72) projects from the reflector neck (12) through a passage and the lamp base (21) is supported on the inner wall (13) of the reflector (1) perpendicular to the longitudinal axis (A). A fastening element (81, 82) is fastened on the power lead (71, 72) at an angle to the longitudinal axis (A) and rests against the outer wall of the reflector neck (12). The lamp (2) is thus fixated in the reflector (1) in the longitudinal direction (A) without play and without any additional spring elements.
