What's an Anti-Static Wrist Strap? Hah, well, If you work on or build PCs in cold dry climates, it helps prevent that static that can build up and zap you and your essential PC innards... surprisingly, it also helps me not get zapped while folding laundry if I just attach it to the bedsheet I fold on :) Who would have thought.

There are two types of damage that ESD can cause, immediate and latent, with latent being the most common type of damage we see today.

A nice, good jolt of static electricity can really damage your PC components. As many Youtube videos prove that you would need a powerful jolt of static electricity to completely fry a computer component outright, other DIY videos on Youtube show that ‘real world’ testing by rubbing your feet on carpet and touching certain components like hard drives, ram, motherboards, etc. would not necessarily fry your component (they will still work), but what people do not realize is that these weaker jolts of static electricity still damage the components! You can search Youtube for the videos under, “Can Static Electricity Damage Computer Parts? Do You Really Need an Anti-Static Wrist Band?” for this demonstration.

When an ESD event occurs, the charge surges into the semiconductor IC (integrated circuit), while the total energy transferred is small and the energy discharged is less than a micro second, the voltage is high, commonly up to 10 kV, but up to 25 kV can be reached (max potential achieved on human body). Low relative humidity may also increase the charge buildup. We may not be able to feel it, but to ICs, it is practically like a lightning striking.

Note that static discharge below 3000 volts (3 kV) is not typically detectable by humans.

Latent damage may not have completely destroyed the circuit and while the circuit may still complete (like the picture shown), the performance will be degraded. There will be higher resistance due to less conductive material along it’s path which can affect timing and signals, which can be critical for high speed communication, especially with todays smaller circuits.

If you work on static sensitive electronics then you will need to have one of these. It dissipates static electricity while you are working on electronics. This is especially important in the winter time when the static electricity is worse or if you are working in a room with carpet. This is a must have tool for you if you build computers. Motherboards, CPU's, GPU's, SSD's, disk drives, memory sticks, etc. are all susceptible to severe damage from static electricity. You can wipe out a $600 CPU or an expensive graphics card or motherboard before you even put it into the computer! Manufacturing facilities take great care in manufacturing electronics in static free environments. It is that critical.

You put this onto your wrist and attach it to the metal chassis of the item you are working on. Touch something metal and grounded before you pick up any item to install into your computer. They are a pain to wear but they do have a self-coiling cord to give you some flexibility. You can adjust it to fit your wrist for comfort.

I own a couple of brands of these and there is one I like better than this one for the comfort factor. For under $7 this is still good insurance for handling those expensive computer components, working on a TV or really any electronic device!

I cannot stress how important it is to wear an anti-static wrist strap when working with PCs. The Rosewill RTK-002 Anti-Static Wrist Strap is an excellent choice when working with your computer. The cable easily hooks on to metal inside my PC. I am able to move all over the place without it coming off. It provides a cable that can stretch pretty far, so I can reach for other tools for what I'm working on. I used this to install a new graphics card, as well as a new motherboard, because my previous one had died, most likely because I wasn't using a wrist strap. Now I use it every single time I open up a PC.

The wrist strap does tend to get a little uncomfortable and itchy after a while, but that's because these aren't designed to be conforatble. They're designed to protect your precious components.

If you are the kind of person that likes to open your computer and do some fixes yourself, i strongly recommend you buy one of these straps and as well an anti-static mat. Static can really damage your computer parts if you are not careful enough.

Can't really pass up peace of mind for $4. It really helped me be more confident while handling and putting together my PC. Since then I've used it while cleaning out my computer with a Metro Vac duster or really any time I need to get my hands inside my system for checking components and upgrading parts. I simply put it on my wrist then clip it onto a bare metal (a screw on the inside of the case would work, or you could scrape away the paint on an inconspicuous spot on/in your case) of my PC case. Your PC should be plugged in to a wall outlet, however the PSU should be switched off. Have had zero problems with my components so far.

It's not the most comfortable thing to wear after a while as it needs to be on kind of snug so that it makes contact with your skin. But it's not a deal breaker. The cord stretches a good bit so it's not really in the way while I'm reaching around for tools and stroking my chin in deep thought.

The wrist strap can adjust up to a rather large size, so if you have bigger wrists you'll be fine. However if you have very small wrists like me you're probably going to have to do what I did, and that was fold up an excess bit of the strap and bond it together with E6000 237032 Craft Adhesive, 2 oz, Clear. Normally if I have to make such an adjustment to a product for it to preform properly, I'd take off a star. But it's not NewEgg/Rosewill's fault that I have the freakishly tiny hands of a child. It will fit and work as is for 99% of people.
