Same principle as using a wrist strap with computers. A legitimate wrist
strap has resistance to limit the current flow. In the case of PC service
you want to prevent static discharge from going through delicate components.
If your wrist strap has no resistance it makes your body a direct path to
ground which could be fatal if you touch the wrong thing.
