Grounding Strap Instructions (Repeat Use)
To Reduce Static Electricity During Exercise
- Use rubbing alcohol to clean the area where you will want to apply the Grounding Strap to the treadmill. Make sure the surface is clean and dry before applying the Grounding Strap.
- Wrap the copper end of the strap around any metal part of the treadmill, being careful to leave plenty of room for you to move your arms back and forth when walking. The best place to attach this would be to the console uprights or the upper hand grips where there is exposed metal. Do NOT attach the copper portion of the Grounding Strap to a plastic part or rubber cover of the rails or the strap will not properly ground.
- Attach the end of the grounding strap with the multi use tape to your arm being sure not to make the strap too tight were it cuts off circulation. Having the strap too tight can also cause the strap to deteriorate prematurely. The strap interior has a black carbon strip that contacts the skin and transfers the static electricity down the strap to the copper contact. Make sure the strap is firm enough to make good contact to your skin.
- After you use the Grounding Strap multiple times the multi use tape will no longer hold a firm contact. When this happens, discard the old Grounding Strap and replace with a new one.
