I use a pair of Tara Labs Zero Evolution balanced interconnect cables. These use a HFX Floating Ground Station to drain noise. A pair of drain wires is run from the cables to the HFX. Another drain wire is meant to connect to a component chassis.

My components have no visible fasteners or ground lug to which I might use as the recommended termination point for the ground wire.

A friend suggested the following solution. I bought a StaticTek Banana Jack Outlet Adapter:

The Tara mini banana plug is 2mm. The StaticTek accepts only a 4 mm plug. I bought a 2mm banana jack female to 4mm banana jack male plug probe:

This arrangement made for a tight secure fit into the ground of the AC outlet receptacle.

This may work with grounding needs other than mine is why I posted this.
