The 'cord' is an adequate length for most computer, printer, and copier work I do
I use this whenever I am working on my computers
Even for the non-professional, casual user, one static charge to your electronic circuit board could cause major damage and cost
Overall I am happy with my purchase!
Purchased to protect while we upgraded four Notebooks memory
I have used this wrist strap on about 3 complete system builds and 5 repairs, and none of the computers have received any ESD
