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.” 

Can you name that movie?

If you are above a certain age, odds are you know the exact the name of this classic. 

Here you go…………

Famous Ground Strap

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

For some unknown reason they changed the lines to say “badges” instead of Ground Straps

Obviously this is deeply disappointing and we are not exactly sure why these lines were changed. 

Well, as they say in the movies, the rest is history (at least it seems like they say that). 

In reality, we have an extensive list of our favorite movies……..that originally were meant to include Famous Ground Strap Quotes which unfortunately changed. 

A little Trivia for you…..can you name the movie from the quotes below….(which were all SUPPOSED to say “Ground Straps“)? 

Famous Ground Strap Quotes (that never were) 

  1. “SHOW ME THE GROUND STRAPS”. 
  2. “Life is like a box of Ground Straps.”
  3. “May the Ground Strap be with you.” 
  4. “Go ahead, make my Ground Strap.”
  5. “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a Ground Strap.”

Ground Straps

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. 

Ground Straps

For example, a company recently contacted us in need of Ground Straps. 

Why? 

While developing a new product during the prototype stage, the engineering firm that they had contracted with overlooked adding ground straps to their product. 

While they were demonstrating their new product at a trade show, the machine consistently issued out shocks to users. 

It was a mystery why their brand new product was dishing out electrical shocks. 

Failing to ground the product was the culprit. 

At a trade show of all places, while demonstrating their new product. Not an ideal situation. 

Ground Straps to the rescue. 

Avoid a Shocking Experience 

Shocking Experience

 
Ground Straps keep our customers safe. Ground Straps also keeps their customers safe. 
 
Not using Ground Straps can be a shocking experience. 
 
Being exposed to a live energy source can lead to severe injuries or even worse. 
 
 
The bottom line:
Ground Straps = AVOIDING SHOCKS & STAYING SAFE 
 
We have a saying for all DIYers: “When in Doubt – Ground IT” .
 
A few tips for avoiding shocks at home:
  1. Never overload a Power Strip 
  2. Stay clear of loose wires or broken outlets 
  3. Turn off the electrical supply of any device that you are working on or trying to repair 
  4. Call an electrician or take your repairs to a technician
  5. Stay clear of water when handling an electrical device 

Especially when you are in the shower or tub jamming to your favorite song, make sure your device is parked away at a safe distance.

Shocking Experience

In particular, various industries or even different parts of the country use a wide array of ground strap names. 
Ground Strap Names

Products (and People) with Different Names 

It is fascinating how the same items can have such a wide range of names. 
Every industry has their own product names based on Slang – Industry Nicknames – Aliases – AKA – Also Known As.  
 
Another example with different terms, depending on where you call home, you might say “You guys” or “Y’all”. If you hail from Pittsburgh, you most likely say “Yinz”.

  • Google it = Web search

  • Polaroid = Instant pic (The original selfie) 

In addition, several famous individuals fit this conversation as well:
