A must for anyone that does work on their computer.

I have not yet decided whether to return or see if I can find another clip that will work with it.

Snap attachment for wrist band should attach easily to any anti static mat.

What's to say... it's an anti-static wrist strap!

For those unaware, the shocking truth is that electronics are very sensitive to electrostatic discharge (ESD). It might not seem like it, but a discharge too small for you to even notice can be enough to damage a printed circuit board (PCB).

As your body naturally builds up a static charge, simply touching the motherboard inside your a computer can discharge several thousand volts of electricity, more than enough to cause permanent damage. The damage done can be total (computer just never boots again) or subtle (strange, difficult to troubleshoot problems that plague you from then on). An anti-static wrist strap is probably the most common measure used to mitigate the risk of frying your computer when you need to work inside and touch the components.

The idea is to wear this strap around your wrist, which has a metal plate (a conductor) that makes contact with your skin and attaches to a cable with a metal clip. When you attach the clip to the bare (unpainted) metal case of your computer, or something else metal, you effectively ground yourself by making the static electricity discharge harmlessly. You can achieve the same result by simply touching a metal part of the case periodically as you work. Not wearing fuzzy socks and scuffing across your carpet on your way to work on your computer on a dry day helps, too. There are also other solutions, such as anti-static mats (for working on as well as ones for standing on).

Warning: some so-called experts will tell you that the whole ESD thing is a myth and will tell you they've worked on computers for years and never used one and not seen a single case of ESD (if these so-called experts live in humid climates, ignore them outright).

The Anti-static strap is a necessity for any guru computer user who opens up the comp. case often. Static can damage components, so you either have to touch the case every minute or so, or take the clip portion of the static band and hook it to the case. It fits quite comfortably around the wrist and it's cord expands to about double it's original size, and the wrist strap and the cord disconnect with a snap. Overall, it's a good investment, considering the price is significantly less then the components you might damage.

I have used the produst many times in the PC Repair class I teach. I order them for my students. Dependable, well made, long lasting. I still have mine after 10 years of almost daily use.

The band is reasonably well made for the price, and is suitable for moderate use. It could be just a few inches longer, but is not bad. 17.5 inches not stretched, 44 inches at a reasonable stretch. The stretching has a little tougher pull than I would prefer, but is not bad. The wrist band is not elastic, which some may prefer. It fastens by a metal loop and Velcro strap, which can be a little of a nuisance to put on. If they made the metal loop 1/8 inch wider to allow the strap to pass through it easier, it would be better. The alligator clip can be removed, leaving an elongated pin that can be inserted into the ground hole of an outlet. Where the wire snaps to the wrist strap, the snap attaches and detaches easily. The snap rotates freely without any hangups. The usual 1 megohm resistance.

I work on a laptop while walking on a treadmill, and since in the winter the air gets drier, I was getting and giving shocks to my laptop (usually via the fingerprint sensor but also through the plastic body or keys I think) every few minutes. So I surfed over to Amazon while on the treadmill, ordered this perfect solution, and a couple days later when it arrived (I was on the treadmill then too), I got some picture wire, wrapped it around the metal arm and secured it by sticking it under the shelves that make up my "treadmill desk", attached the alligator clip to the wire, put on the strap - which is easy to do even while walking with hands in front of me - and snapped the grommet into the strap's receptacle. Result: no more shocks, ever - as long as I remember to put on the strap. No shock the first time I snap in, either.

Pros:
* snap it in and forget about it - the small-diameter coils give plenty (3 feet) of stretch, and give enough warning if I forget to take it off before running for the phone
* no more shocks
* attractive raincoat yellow against black strap
* easy to attach strap due to just enough stiffness
* easy to snap in and out

Cons:
* the strap is pretty comfortable, but it is a simple length of velcro; the part against my wrist is smooth but it could be a tad more comfortable - but this is not an issue, just a nice-to-have. I took off one star (4 total) for comfort but kept the 5 stars overall.

I used this band in my recent PC build. I used very expensive components so I wanted to be protected against static electricity. I can report that while using this Band, I didn't have any incidents of static electricity discharge, which means it worked! It is very comfortable on the wrist, I can say that because I have a very wide wrist and still it was very easy to wear. The design is very good as you just connect the clip to a bare metal area on the computer chassis and the cord can extend long enough as to allow you freedom of movement to get parts and work in the computer without problems. Highly Recommended!
