Genuine Hippo connectors provide a temporary simple and easy way to securely connect LED strip lights.
It accommodates a cable between 0.34mm2 - 0.54mm2 and can take a total current of 5 amps.
The clip has an Ingress Protection rating of IP54. The 5 means that it is protected against solid objects of 1mm. The 4 means that it is protected against splashing water from any direction.
Therefore they are splashproof and ideal for quick and temporary indoor installations. This can include kitchens as the lights may be sprayed with steam from the kettle.

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 quick installation of LED drivers.
This is ideal for a fast 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 and wires 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.
