do crocks work as anti static grounding

I'm building a PC in the next few days and i'm worried about anti static shock so i'm wondering if crocks will ground me and stop anti static shock from taking place.

Have your PSU plugged in to the wall but switched off while building and touch it every once in a while or before you handle vital components.

The important thing is that you are grounded to the computer and components. If there's enough difference in charge between you and the computer, it doesn't matter much if one or the other is grounded. With that said, I've built while standing on carpet and wearing both socks and a 50/50 cotton synthetic hoodie before without any issues.

It's not about isolating yourself from the ground, it's about staying the same voltage as your electronics. You can build while furiously rubbing your feet on carpet if you like, as long as you ground to the case often enough.

Probably not. They are plastic and plastic is more often gathering static than being neutral.

crocs are not antistatic

Best thing to do is put your pc on a wooden table, and always touch the frame of the pc.

You could just buy an anti-static wrist strap for $2
