Default Wireless anti-static device

When I bought my HP laptop I purchased 3 years of onsite service. There was a tech here today. He had a wireless anti-static device. I have no idea of these actually work. His is a Shaxon Wireless Anti-static Wrist Strap.

As a side note, I watched him begin the replacement of my keyboard (one of the keys was not working all the time). What I job. He had to disassemble the whole computer. The keyboard came as a single unit combined with a mother board. Turn the computer upside down and inside you see the mother board with battery and other stuff attached. He had to remove everything on the motherboard to replace it with a new keyboard/mobo combo. I was not well enough to sit and watch the whole thing. Plus, watching him do it was making me a nervous wreck, as I imagined how I would feel trying to do it.

I also noticed one thing he did to make it easier. He drew circles on a piece of paper and grouped the screws into different circles. Some of them he labeled. And best of all, when he was done there were no screws left over.
