Hi, i have this kit: Radioshack Electronics Anti-Static Service Kit
Is a Red Mat with a coiled cable that ends in a wrist strap and another cable that end in an alligator clip.
I am not sure on how to CORRECTLY Use it. I want to use it to build my New PC today. All the components are new.
Is kind of a dumb question, but Basically, can someone tell me the CORRECT WAY TO USE THIS mat and wrist strap?
Where should i ground? does the Wriststrap has to be really tight to might wrist? etc...
To give you an idea of the things i have around of the working area for assembling the PC that I THINK can be used for GROUNDING are:
- i have one of those white plastic tables, with metal legs that have some sort of paint. Similar to this: Plastic Table
- behind me i have some Black Painted metal shelves similar to this ones: Black Metal Wire Shelve
- One Independent False Metal Floor (60cms x 60 cms) with adjustable metal "legs" or "screws" similar to this one: Metal False Floor
(NOTE: My floor is a concrete floor, i just have 1 unit of this "False metal Floor" that i bought from a Scrap Metal Recycliing Center, that i use as a "base" to elevate my other computer from the Floor.
Thanks in advance
