In a vehicle, it is the electrical strap that connects the engine to the rest of the car. The purpose is to make sure all electrical devices have a good electrical connection and to prevent static in the radio.
In appliances it is a wire that connect the appliance to a permanent grounding device. The purpose is to prevent injury to the people who might touch the appliance.
In a vehicle an earth ground strap is also a strap that drains static electricity off the car to the ground. They prevent painful static shocks when exiting the vehicle and eliminate electrostatic discharge ESD responsible for fire at gas stations.
The ground strap is the battery cable that connects from the negative battery post to ground, usually the chassis.
The ground strap prevents static electricity causing a spark, which could cause a fire.
On the engine block.
There are 3 different grounds. Engine to body ground. Engine to frame ground. Engine to battery ground.
Its a ground strap
To prevent static damage to electronic components that the wearer of the wist strap is handling. Note, to work the strap must be connected by a wire to a "ground" or "earth" point.
AnswerPlace the strap on the saddle to transport it.

Unbolt it and buy a new one
An antistatic wrist strap, ESD wrist strap, or ground bracelet is an antistatic device used to safely ground a person working on very sensitive electronic equipment, to prevent the buildup of static electricity on their body, which can result in electrostatic discharge (ESD).
Ground strap on most Chevy engines is on the rear of the passengers side head , goes to the fire wall under heater hoses then to tne frame of the truck
It is a ground strap to ground the engine block to the frame. a broken ground strap could result in improper electrical grounding for ignition and other electrical parts
Check plug wires, distributor, coil, and ground strap.
The ground strap on a 1997 Chevy Blazer 4.3 Vortec is located along the bottom of the engine near the frame. It ensures that electricity flows properly through the entire vehicle.
It is a device that is used to ground vibrating machinery to the ground wire of the device's feeder wire. The strap has extra flexibility that will take the bending and flexing from the machine to the ground terminal. If a wire is used, most times it will stress fracture and break due to the vibration, leaving the device ungrounded.
its a ground
I don't think that it is one strap but two straps taped together because it's so slinky and down to the ground, and i can't find any type of strap that looks like that..
With rubber motor mounts.
They generally bolt the ground cable directly to the engine block.
when working around an exposed cathode ray tube
Yes, just at the main panel and not subpanels. The bonding of ground to neutral may be a screw or strap.
bend the ground strap with a needle nose pliers until it's where you want it to be.
Plug gap, you just bend the ground strap with a pair of needle nose to get the gap you want.
An anti-static mat is usually made of a conductive plastic. Usually, on one corner there is a snap connector. From that snap connector there is a long, (usually GREEN) wire, as well as a coiled wire that goes to a wrist strap. The green wire goes to the round GROUND connector of an AC wall socket. The coiled wire that goes to a wrist strap goes just like that. Wrap the wrist strap around your wrist. The reason for this setup is, through the green wire to the ground connector, you put both the mat and your body at ground potential. It takes the static electricity from your body,via the wrist strap, and from the mat to ground. Be VERY CAREFULL!! YOU MUST KNOW WHERE THE GROUND IS ON AN AC OUTLET TO USE THIS AS I HAVE OUTLINED. If you do not know where the ground pin is on an AC outlet, you should not use it.
