Replace a Grounding Strap

Use this task to replace a damaged grounding strap, or to fasten a grounding strap to equipment that you are replacing, if it does not already have one attached.

  1. Locate the grounding strap to be replaced, and disconnect the grounding strap from the panel or door if still attached.

    The following figure shows the locations of grounding straps on the cabinet.

    Save the screw.

  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for the second segment of the grounding strap.

    Ensure that the second segment is the opposite male or female connector that mates with the first segment of the grounding strap.

  5. If the two segments of the strap are not connected, connect the banana jack to complete the connection.
