Installing your Loop Clip

Your Loop Clip is the device that clips around a cable next to your electricity meter and monitors the amount of electricity you're using in your home.

After Pairing your clip with the Hub, you need to clip it on to one of the cables in your meter cupboard.  The app will guide your through which cable to clip on to, but if you're still unsure, check this other article for more information. 

How do I install my Loop Clip?

Your new Clip is a clever piece of technology.  The foam inserts are important to its proper operation, so do not remove them and try to avoid touching them during installation. 1

To make sure the Clip works as intended, please ensure your electricity cable is clean and free of debrisWe would recommend wiping the cable with a dry cloth prior to installing the Clip.  

Please ensure to follow our installation instructions from the device setup wizard on the Loop smartphone app.

Install your Clip

Take note of the arrow direction on the Clip and ensure that the arrows follow the same direction as the label on the power cable or, towards the electricity meter.

 

NOTE: Carefully connect the Clip on a straight section of the power cable that you previously attached the first label to.

 

Please avoid attaching the Clip to a bendy part of the cable as doing so may potentially damage the Clip.

 

Close the Clip

Please ensure the Clip is fully closed without obstruction.  You should feel it click shut.

Standard electrical cables are 16mm2 (16mm squared) and 25mm2 (25mm squared) -  the Loop Clip is designed to clamp around both. Whilst it may be a tight fit around the larger 25mm2 cables, the Clip will close. 

It's essential that your Clip is fully closed.
