Start-up Company Loopy Cases Introduces the Loopy®, 
the First Smartphone Case with a Finger Loop to “Stop the Drop”

The Loopy®, a unique invention of a smartphone case with adjustable finger loop, is an industry first and is designed to help people keep from dropping their smartphones

 SCHERERVILLE, INDecember 11, 2012 – Start-up company Loopy Cases announces the launch of its innovative new smartphone case, the Loopy®. The Loopy is a first for the industry, a slim protective case with a silicone finger loop attached to the back that helps “Stop the Drop.” With the Loopy users can hold their phone with just one finger. This provides a better grip on the phone, allows for easy one-handed use, and frees up the user’s hands. The finger loop is adjustable to fit any size finger and is also interchangeable, allowing the user to customize color and style. 

Loopy Cases is a family business started by two entrepreneurial brothers, JT and Jim Wangercyn. In fact, the invention of the Loopy is due to the experience of their father who created the first Loopy case after dropping and damaging his iPhone immediately upon leaving the store after upgrading. The finger loop of the case is designed to prevent dropping your phone rather than acting as a bulky, reactive case that protects a phone after dropping it.

JT Wangercyn, Loopy Cases CEO, said, “We knew from the get-go that the Loopy was a cool idea, an innovative solution that meets a significant industry need, solving a big problem for smartphone users. Dropping your phone is not just inconvenient, it is expensive to get it repaired. Smartphone users are looking for a smart way to protect their phone at a reasonable price while not sacrificing style and without adding unnecessary bulk. The Loopy does all that. We plan to stake a strong position in the market.”

Features and benefits of the Loopy include:

  • the finger loop allows for easy one-handed use
  • loop provides a more comfortable and secure grip on your phone
  • the protective slim case protects against daily wear and tear
  • multiple color combinations allow for style and personal expression
  • the loop provides a kickstand for the smartphone
  • the finger loop prevents a “face drop” – keeps your phone from falling on your face while using it lying down
  • reasonable price for a unique and effective smartphone case

The Loopy case is available for certain iPhone and Samsung Galaxy model phones and can be ordered direct through the company website, http://www.loopycases.com. It costs $19.95 and comes with a lifetime guarantee.

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.


(Please click any question to expand the answer)

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 :)
