Earth Strap FAQs
What is an earth strap in the automotive industry?
An earth strap is a lead which runs between an electrical component and a negative battery terminal, or chassis, providing an alternate path for electricity to travel. The earth strap protects your vehicle from damage in the event of a power surge or short circuit, by dispersing the electricity safely.
Why are earth straps braided?
Earth straps are braided in order to protect both people, and electrical devices, from sudden surges in electricity. Normally made from high-grade copper wire, earth straps can redirect electricity safely into the earth, or a negative battery terminal when used within the automotive industry.
The braided wire is better able to transmit electricity safely than a single wire, due to splitting the electricity between multiple wires.
