Assuming you want similar this should get you what you want. Or if it is just the connectors you want then this

Hi
Yes it's the actual connectors i am looking for really. I already have the wrist strap and wire but was looking for a source of the stud connectors.
Thanks for your help Wink

From that I assume your wrist strap is in need of repair. I bought one of these. The mat's not huge but I thought it was worth the money and has served me well.

Re: What am i searching for?

No it's not in need of repair (heck they're only a couple of quid on ebay) it's that i want to make some modifications to one of these:

Mine has 1MegOhm resistor built in on all three connectors but my wristband also has this and I want to fit some more connectors to the plug that don't have the resistor.
I could obviously just buy one without the resistance in the plug but I'd prefer to have a one job does all type plug. I also want to add some 4mm / banana sockets too. For what they are, I think they're overpriced (maplin and RS charge high prices and one ebayer sells the plug and band for £20) so I feel that i should get my monies worth if i can modify it to suit my requirements.
I've already got the case open and can see that it's relatively easy to tinker with internally but i just couldn't find the stud connectors!
