Using snaps has long been the most common way of making a grounding connection (wrist straps, ground cords, etc) in ESD control products, but snaps have some drawbacks. Snaps can be easily unsnapped or damaged, and they are not normally used for making an electrical connections. Desco manufacturers a better design that is more durable and cannot be easily disengaged.

The design used in Desco’s dome style ground cords is made with a 10mm (0.395 in.) male threaded snap. Dome style ground cords are sometimes called a Floor Mat Ground, but they can be used on work benches too. With a screw and washer installed from the backside of the mat, the ground cord can be secured to the mat to reduce the opportunity for the mat to become ungrounded.

Since Desco’s start we have been dedicated to manufacturing. From the original Circuitracer to our newest ionizer, we are dedicated to making stuff.  We have expanded to over 380K square feet of manufacturing space at our factories. We celebrate Manufacturing Day and all the companies and people who spend their days making stuff.
