    just plug in the PSU, turn the PSU off then connect the strap to it.
  4. put the anti-static strap on your ankle, so that it wont bother with your work,

    then clip the other end to any metal object with contact to the ground/floor or anything metal attached to your house.
  5. Round your ankle - - seriously?

    sorry for the lack of details.

    yes, around the ankle and it must have contact with the skin.
