  • Patent number: 5032920
    Abstract: A device which provides electrical grounding between a conductive screen and a cathode ray tube (CRT) mounted in a monitor includes a conductive piece which is electrically connected to the conductive screen. When the conductive screen is mounted over the CRT the conductive piece exerts a spring force on a conductive strap on the CRT, thus establishing electrical connection between the conductive piece and the CRT. A coating of electrically conducting paint may also be used to facilitate conduction between the conducting piece and the conductive strap.
