In the Spring of 2013, JT Wangercyn, CEO and Co-founder of Loopy Cases, competed in Purdue's The Big Sell Entrepreneurship Competition.  He pitched the concept of Loopy Cases to more than 350 people and competed against 50 competitors.  Each team had two minutes to pitch to the crowd, who voted using electronic remotes, and a panel of judges.  After the first round, ten teams were selected to advance to another two-minute pitch, this time with a five-minute Q&A from the judges.

JT entered the stage dropping an old smartphone to demonstrate the problem with people dropping their devices at hand and continued the demonstration with a full overview of the first Loopy Case.  After the intense Q&A followed by the second round, Loopy Cases took first place.

The following weekend, Indiana University hosted the annual IDEA Competition, whereas both Jim Wangercyn, co-founder, and brother JT Wangercyn pitched Loopy Cases to a panel of judges to prove both the innovation and feasibility behind the design.  After competing with a dozen other groups, Loopy Cases took first place again and ever since has moved forth with growing to be a household name in the smartphone case industry.

Hold Your Phone with Your Left Hand?

Not a problem!


Below are some frequently asked questions to help you decide if a lefty model Loopy is for you.  In short, it's all about which hand you predominantly HOLD your phone with :)


If you'd like to purchase a left-handed Loopy, simply type out 'LEFTY' in your order during checkout in the notes section. If you're ordering multiple Loopy Cases, please note which models you'd like a LEFTY version of as well.

Do I need a left-handed model Loopy?

The best way to decide whether you need a left-handed version is answered by this question: which hand do you hold your phone with MOST of the time? If the left hand, please request a LEFTY model via the instructions above. If the right hand, no note is needed since this is the default orientation for Loopy :)


What is the difference between a lefty and righty Loopy?

The loop angle. We set the loop at a specific angle for the most comfort and best performance of your case. You can see the loop angle below:

Can I still use my phone with my right hand if I get a lefty model?

Absolutely. Most of us here at Loopy HQ use our cases with both hands with EASE. Our loops are made to be comfortable and versatile for use with both of your hands. The loop angle is simply there to give you maximum comfort with your dominant hand, but does not hinder your ability to use it with the other.


I'm right-handed but use my phone with my left hand. Should I get a lefty?

Think about the question within the first FAQ question written here. This should help you determine what is best for you!


Anything else I should know?

Keep in mind that you will be able to use your phone one-handed with a Loopy. This is a game changer! Using your phone one-handed is awesome. Select your dominant hand based on the info above and you shouldn't have a problem at all :)
