Default What sort of shop will sell Anti-Static wriststraps?

sponsored links

 
I saw some at a computer fair near me, but I forgot to buy one. Is there anywhere online that will sell them? Or is there a national name store that would sell them, or anywhere else you can think of?
Cheers

In most cases you don't need them. Just touch metal first, like the inside of the case or the power supply. Just my 2 cents.

NotAHacker is right.
I just run a ground wire from one of my outlets and touch it before I work on a machine.

I'm going to move this to the Consumer's Opinion forum where I'm sure that they can give you lots of suggestions.
