    Pros:

    Well think what a fool you'd feel if your £300 graphics card wouldn't work because you didnt ground yourself. Ok so i've never had that happen, but i've always grounded myself using a field service kit attached to the earth wiring or attaching my wrist strap to something grounded like a radiator.

    I bought this to try out or to use on as a backup on my other wrist in case the croc clip from my hardwired one failed. Or when working on aoutomotive systems, or where i have limited space etc.

    Came with spare strap which i could use to make it bigger but then have so much spare you defeat the point.

    Cons:

    Wrist strap is too short, barely fits round my wrists another 1cm with adjustment and it'd be great for everyone, i only need about another 30mm.

    OtherThoughts:

    Bottomline:

    If it fits great, if you have large wrists, dont bother get another.
