    I had thought that this product would be perfect if only the alligator clip would come off so you could plug right into ground. When lo and behold! I pulled on the clip and there was the plug end for exactly what I wanted. As it was, I had thought the product was great for clipping onto the computer chassis or something to prevent shock, but I knew it would be better if I could actually ground myself. Well, now I can even use the product as I sit and type and prevent shock to my laptop or desktop.

    The strap is used to eliminate static electricity for the computer technician by fastening the alligator clip to the computers metal casing to ground the user and eliminate static buildup that can harm sensitive internal parts in the computer. The item is inexpensive and works OK with simple movements, but the alligator clip is so small that it disengages easily when tested with more expansive movements.

                It's a fine little grounding strap, but there was no continuity on the coiled cable that came with it. Tried to return it but I didn't put enough postage on it and it got kicked back. Now it's not worth it to return it. Too bad, cuz it looked like it would be handy to have, you know, if it worked.

                                Reliable. My friend put it on and said he usually just touches the case, but accepted the use of the wrist band because my Apt is all carpeted, and no good place to work on the inside of a case. It worked great.
