When the Electra Static Discharge is applied to the enclosed pager, it will enter the enclosure through the open gaps. These open gaps may be found in places such as around the buttons, on the comers where the top and bottom part of the enclosure meet and most importantly around the programming pins. Since these pins are completely exposed, they provide a great path for the charges to enter the pager enclosure.
