An Great Grounding and Bonding Find!!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Discovered this company's products from reading about them in Alan Applegate's (K0BG) mobile installation grounding and bonding tips. Thank's Alan!!

This grounding braid strap material is handily manufactured and sold in 25' foot spools with the sturdy grommets already installed. It's a cinch to measure, cut, and install this on your rig and other gear in the shack, and especially handy to use for vehicle bonding.

I bought the version with the plastic web insulating jacketing in blue. The jacketing material is sort of reminiscent of the Chinese finger traps/puzzles you may have played with as a kid. When affixing to ground posts, bolts, screws, stubs etc, it is really easy to snip off or spread the fibers.

I recommend it highly, and there's no minimum order so you can order one spool if that's all you need.

Very 73,

Rob - AA6A
