I saw the expression in some thread and I'm wondering what it means when installing ground braid. In this case, it was about avoiding ground loop around the door hardware.

Thanks!

Quoted from YeOldPinPlayer:

If your coin door is already grounded, don't connect ground braid to it.

As my ground will connect with one of the bolt from the door frame, I guess I should avoid connect the ground braid to it as well (the one to the door directly with the tubing around)
