It includes an alligator clip that fits over the installed banana jack on the 12' long grounding cord. The WS01 has a relaxed (i.e., not stretched) circumference of 5.5". The WS02 fabric strap, available in one size, includes a 6' coiled cord and alligator clip to provide ground connection. Please note that the color of the cord and wrist strap may vary from lot to lot.
