Static sensitive components can be damaged by being handled while you are not properly grounded. This anti-static heel strap can be used together with special conductive floor tile as part of a comprehensive anti-static program.
Anti-static heel straps allow freedom of movement around the shop environment without the restriction of a wrist strap ground cord leashing you to a bench. For complete anti-static protection, two anti-static heel straps are recommended. One anti-static heel strap should be worn on each foot. Velcro straps are pulled over the top of the foot to secure the anti-static heel strap in place. The nylon ribbon should be tucked into your sock or into your shoe. The nylon ribbon should make contact with skin, or at minimum, with the sweaty moisture in your shoe in order to provide a path to ground for the static electricity.
