    Steps on How to use an Anti-static Wrist Strap:

    Use an ESD Strap to Ground Yourself

    1. Choose a wired strap to ground yourself.

    Two kinds of ESD straps – with cord or wire that use to connect yourself to a ground, and wireless .

    2. Wrap the ESD strap around your wrist.

    Put the ESD strap around your wrist and snap it closed before you come into contact with ESD-sensitive items. Remember that all parts of the strap should be in direct contact with your skin at all times.

    3. Attach the other end of the strap to a common ground.

    At the other end of the cord attached to your wrist strap is an alligator clip that you can use to connect yourself to a common ground.

    4. Clip your strap to a metal part if no common ground is available.

    Snap the alligator clip to a metal part of the computer you're working  on If you don't have a common ground point.

    5. Wear your ESD strap whenever you're around ESD-sensitive items.

    Keep yourself grounded  any time you are holding or working with computer components, such as motherboards or video cards, that are not installed in the computer case.

    6. Test the resistance value of your ESD strap periodically.

    An ESD strap should have a resistance value in the range of 1 to 10 Ohms to protect yourself against electrostatic discharge.
