This 8mm Hippo LED strip connector is used to connect LED strip lights. This is a strip to strip LED connector that enables multiple strip lights to be easily connected.

Features of Hippo Connectors
This LED connector features 2 pins to allow connection of two single colour LED strip lights / LED Tape.
Note: Ensure the strip is 8mm in width.
Genuine Hippo connectors provide a temporary simple and easy way to securely connect LED strip lights.
The clip has an Ingress Protection rating of IP20. The 2 means that it is protected against solid objects over 12.5mm. For example, this would include touching. The 0 means that it has no protection against water.
Therefore they are not waterproof. They are ideal for quick and temporary indoor installations.

These are a perfect alternative to conventional Snap-On LED connectors. Hippo connectors pierce through the circuit board of the LED strip creating a sturdy connection between the PCB and Strip connector.
Using and Installing Hippo Connectors
Hippo connectors are perfect for temporary indoor LED lighting projects. They enable multiple lengths of strip lights to be connected to create custom lengths.
Note: Do Not daisy chain more than 5m lengths of LED tape in one line. This could cause the tape to overheat and cause it to fail.
This is ideal for a quick setup of light displays for events such as parties or exhibitions. Perfect for small scale stage shows where short term unique lighting designs are required.
These Hippo clips reduce the time required for installing LED lights while also reducing the need for technical wiring experience.
Hippo connectors are effortless to install. Cut the LED strip to the desired length and peel pack the protective paper.
Note: Only cut the LED Strip Light at the marked cutting intervals.
Place the Strip into the connector and then push the plastic covering down. Once the connectors are closed, they can't be reopened due to the firm and tight connection.
Note: These connectors make a simple and fast connection solution for temporary installations. For long term installations/applications however, we always recommend direct soldering.
We also offer this product as a LED strip to wire connector.
