Grounds you so you don't "zap" your components, you can also just touch a grounded metal item, the strap if attached to a ground just re-directs static from you to whatever you are grounded to. A lot of people overlook electrostatic damage when assembling PC,s and its the fastest way to brick what you are working on.
