"Maintains Electrical Connection to Ground"
Like a Grounding Wrist Strap for your car! No one likes that awful big shock when getting out of an automobile or truck. That shock is the discharge of "chassis voltage" built up as the vehicle moves along the highway. This type of discharge causes serious problems when it occurs at the gas pump. Every year, this seemingly innocent spark occurs at the wrong place and the wrong time: igniting gasoline vapors while fueling the vehicle. This can be prevented by grounding the vehicle.
The Vehicle Ground Strap can be used on any car or truck. Simply affix the strap's clamp to the chassis of the vehicle and allow the conductive strap to dangle to the ground. Safe, durable and unaffected by the weather, the Vehicle Ground Strap maintains a secure ground and electrically neutral vehicle. Makes a great gift too. 24" long, 1 year warranty.
Eliminates Painful Shocks When Grounding Your Body
Your body is always trying to discharge excess body voltage. When you have a high body voltage and you touch a source of ground, like an automobile or grounded sheet or canopy, you can get a shock as the electrons move quickly to neutralize your body. While it is a good thing to discharge, the sting of the shock is not. Hold the Painless Static Discharger in your hand while you touch the ground source and the shock is eliminated. Discharge still occurs, as you can tell because the Discharger will light up. Touch it to any grounded metal object like a car, desk, water pipe, Earthing Pad, or bronze statue. LED display indicates when discharging has occurred. Clears up the static hazard within 0.2 seconds! Streamlined design, comfortable to hold. Includes keychain ring and completely discrete, only 2½ inches long. Good up to 25,000V! Non-electric, no battery needed!

"Add Grounding to Your Laptop"
Most laptops are not grounded, even when working off plug-in power. Ungrounded electronics may emit high electric fields or raise Body Voltage. Adding grounding could be the answer. This 12 foot ground cord plugs right into the USB port and makes contact with the laptop's chassis. The other end plugs into a grounded wall outlet (North American plug style). Simple and effective, as recommended by Michael Neuert.
Caution: Use an outlet tester to check your outlet for proper grounding before connection a laptop to ground. Don't blame us if your outlet is not properly grounded!
To add a measure of safety to any cord in the unlikely event of a lightning strike or voltage spike traveling on your electrical system, you can insert this handy fuse anywhere along the length of the wire. Set includes fuse holder, two 0.10 Amp fuses (one is a spare), and two wire nuts.
Need more room for your high frequency filters or ground cords" This sturdy adapter converts one outlet into three. Uses standard North American 3-prong outlet. Handles up to 15A safely. Color/style may vary.
An external field will induce an electric field within our bodies. In this sense, our bodies act as antennas picking up fields from electric blankets, alarm clocks, powerlines, and just about everything connected to a source of electric power.
Delicate biological cellular processes (like brain function and heart muscle contraction) operate on the scale of microVolts to milliVolts. Body Voltage can exceed several Volts in some cases.
If you prefer to ground to soil, this version of our popular Body Voltage meter comes with a 45 inch copper-plated steel rod and 50 feet of cord so you can ground directly to Earth for confident readings. This is especially important when:
Simply push the ground rod into the soil and run the ground cord to the location where you want to perform your body voltage measurements.
Need more cable?
This smaller, 20 ft extension cable has banana male on one end, female on the other. You can daisy chain as many as you like to achieve the desired length. Fits into the Body Voltage Meter.

Check Sockets for Improper Wiring and Faulty Ground!
You know what happens when we ass-u-me" Electric sockets can be bad for a number of reasons: a wire can short or fray, a wire can become disconnected, or corrode at the contact, or the wires can be connected to the wrong contact altogether! These problems can be a fire hazard, a shock hazard, a problem for polarized appliances, and definitely a problem if you are using the socket's ground connection to Earth your shielding.
There is no need to guess because it is so easy to test for proper wiring at a socket. Simply plug in the tester and look at the result. Large LCD display indicates if ground is missing or faulty. Easy to see LEDs light up to indicate all these possible problems:
This inexpensive tester can be used over and over and gives either peace of mind or a specific learning about what to do. Don't ground to your socket without it! North American Plug only. Rated for 120V, 50/60 Hz.

Extra Large Anti-Static Mat:
Static Electricity accumulates as you walk and move about. Once you build enough static charge your body can get a shock when you touch another conductive object. After this discharge, your body begins the static building process again as you continue to move about. The discharge is not only painful to you but it can also be destructive to the object you touch... like a phone, computer or any electronic component.
To eliminate the pain and save your electronic equipment place Anti-Static Mini Pads at strategic locations (your desk, computer, fax, file cabinet). Touch them often. Touch it with your hand, toe, nose or any part of your body. No pain, no damage, as you are now at zero static. 4x6 inches. Blue side: 108 Ohm/sq. Black side: 104 Ohm/sq.

Great Way to Connect Leads to a Conductive Fabric
Working without alligator clips or snaps" This nontoxic, solvent free and water soluble material spreads easily and dries quickly to form a conductive bond between most surfaces. Just squeeze a little bit onto your fabric, embed the bare copper wire lead into it and wait about an hour. It adheres well to a wide range of synthetic and natural fabrics. Note that Electric Paint is water soluble, washing with soap and water will remove any paint which has been applied. If you want to make it more durable, you can use waterproofing spray to protect the surface of the fabric. Use it to make conductive traces, repair circuit boards, even make smart textiles!
The paint's conductive properties do not degrade over time. In-house samples demonstrate that the material can last years if treated properly and kept dry. Electric Paint is well suited for screen-printing with meshes ranging from 43t to 90t. The paint is slightly resistive- at approximately 55 ohms per square. The conductivity of Electric Paint increases as it dries, therefore wait until it is completely dry to test your projects. 10ml squeeze tube. Black.
