Making Ground Straps That Customers Can’t Refuse

Making Ground Straps that customers can’t refuse. That is our mission here at Falconer Electronics. 

Due to popular demand, we expanded our line of Braided Ground Straps

Therefore, borrowing this line from one of the most famous movie quotes of all time just seems to fit: “I’m going to make him an offer he can’t refuse.” 


Famous Ground Strap Quotes (That Almost Made the Movies)

Today, let’s discuss “Almost Famous” Ground Strap Quotes that didn’t quite make it. 

You may not have realized how prevalent of a role that Ground Straps have played in movies over the years. 

However, when it came time for filming, many lines changed prior to final cut. 

Unfortunately, in most cases Ground Straps were cut out of numerous classic movies. 

For example, are you familiar with this line: “Ground Straps? We ain’t got no Ground Straps! We don’t need no Ground Straps!”

~The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, 1948


We Love the Smell of Ground Straps in the Morning

“We Love the Smell of Ground Straps in the Morning!” 

Can you name the movie that we “borrowed” this quote from? 


“Apocalypse Now” with Robert Duvall roaming the beach completely unfazed by the bombs dropping around him as he belts out, “I love the smell of Napalm in the morning.”

Bonding and ground straps are terms that people often make the mistake of using interchangeably. However, they are not the same thing. While their jobs are similar in nature there are very important differences. Also, their functionality is almost opposite to each other.

Ground Strap Blog Posts on Safety 

Grounding: Electrical Safety or Teenage Angst

Grounding? You mean I’m grounded?! The word “grounding” is certainly never one you want to hear as a teenager.

Especially from your parents. Grounding means no car. No smartphones, tablets or other devices. No sleepovers.

You are basically under house arrest. Oh, the humanity! It certainly pays to mind your manners.

In other words, try to stay out of trouble.

Anyway, the term “Grounding” for this discussion refers to safety. Phew!

Great stuff to discuss when it comes to electrical products. Grounding returns live electrical circuits to the earth or ground.

This keeps individuals safe from live wires or currents.


Heavy Duty Braided Ground Straps Deliver Safety & Dependability

You’re Grounded! Typically not a welcomed expression. Especially during those tough teenage years.

Well, when discussing Braided Ground Straps, “You’re Grounded” means safety and dependability. 

Electrical currents power the world. Can you imagine life without electricity? Wow! How on earth did our poor ancestors survive without it?

However, electrical currents deliver a powerful force. Unfortunately, without the proper safety and precaution, dangerous and unwanted results can occur.


Not Using Ground Straps Can Be a Shocking Experience

Ground Straps literally serve as life savers.

Especially since not using Ground Straps can be a Shocking Experience.

Staying grounded means keeping level headed with your feet on the ground (as well as above ground). 

However, not being ground can lead to….bad times.

Eliminating the Dreaded RFQ for Ground Straps at Falconer Electronics

Ahh…..the dreaded RFQ. 

To sum up, the dreaded RFQ process can be described as cumbersome and stressful. 

Speaking with professionals in purchasing, they will tell you one of the biggest sources of frustration lies with waiting for a response to a request for quote.  

Waiting for the dreaded RFQ wastes time and resources as well as hurts profits. 

Wouldn’t it be wonderful for those of you in new product development if you could receive a quote immediately?

It’s not that the vendor doesn’t want to get an accurate quote in your hands as quickly as possible. 

Especially with small manufacturers. They simply lack the necessary resources to do so, such as technology, staff and most importantly time.
