  2. Get a screwdriver that will fit under the anode cap, but first ground the
    blade to the chassis with a piece of wire. If the set hasn't been on for
    months it probably won't have a charge and if it does it won't hurt you but
    if it had a charge and you were carrying the tube you might drop it and that
    could hurt.

    My favourite way is to use the slot screwdriver and strap it to a
    grounded source, eg an outlet etc., thru a 470 k resistor. No big snap
    and the tube will discharge nicely. Do not ground to the chassis unless
    you are sure it is grounded. It probably won't be unless the set in
    plugged into the wall, which you really don't want to have....

    Absurd. The capacitance storing the charge is formed by the aquadag
    coating on the outside of the picture tube glass and the internal
    coating connected to the metal HV connector. Since the outside
    coating is indeed connected to the chassis, you SHOULD discharge the
    button to the chassis. It doesn't matter whether or not the set is
    plugged in at the time.
