Roll up your snorkel to a snail
 
 
 
 
 
 
Although the LOOPEL is so flexible it provides steady bearing for snorkelling, crawling, apnoea ... without movements!
 
 
 
 
 

DESIGNED BY NATURE   —   ENGINEERED BY SEAREQ:  LOOPEL, the Spiral Snorkel

 
A well-known problem: Where to store the snorkel during the dive?Passt in jede Tasche: der LOOPEL
Fixed to the mask it violates and it does not fit in the pocket of the BCD … That’s why many divers go without their snorkels.
 
The solution: LOOPEL

Like a snail the LOOPEL from Seareq can be rolled up to a diameter of 11 cm / 4.33 inch only and fits in all BCD pockets. It is self-closing and does not require an additional case. This is the reason why it is so compact.

 
So tiny   —   even though standard measurements!
Regardless of its compact feature the LOOPEL is a high value and high performance snorkel – due to its standard measurements; it is not just a “back-up” snorkel. The tube has standard diameter for easy breathing.
 
Hydrodynamic Breathing Tube
The ergonomic breathing tube nestles close to the head. It has a hydrodynamic shape which minimizes water resistance.LOOPEL hat Standardmaße für alle Anwendungen
In spite of its flexible material the snorkel is very sturdy due to rib-reinforcements in its lower bend. Therefore the LOOPEL always stays upright during snorkeling at the surface as well as during apnea diving. It makes easy breathing possible even during sportive, fast crawling and always remains attached to the mask strap without fluttering.  
 
Signal color on the top
The top of the snorkel is in Safety-Orange to increase its being seen on the surface. Thanks to its angle the top of the LOOPEL functions like a wave-breaker and reduces the chance of splash water getting into the tube.

The air-intake hole is just below the blow-hole at the top, thus preventing most of the possible splash water getting into the breathing tube.

 
Comfortable Mouth Piece with Drainage Valve
The mouth piece is very comfortable and soft. It is made of 100% silicone, fitting teeth and gums well. This prevents tiring of the jaw-muscles. It is tasteless and transparent due to hygienic reasons.
A drainage valve is placed at the lowest point of the snorkel to drain off salivate and water to reduce air-cleaning of the snorkel – for comfortable and enjoyable snorkeling.
 
LOOPEL is a state of the art piece of equipment which provides features of high comfort and fulfills modern demands!

Rolling up to a snail

 
What makes the LOOPEL extraordinary is its self-closing feature, without additional aid. It does not require an extra case – just roll it up, close it, ready to dive!
 
Rolling up is easy. In 3 steps only you have folded up your LOOPEL:
  1. Push the holding ring to the rib enforcements at the lower bend of the breathing tube;
  2. Start at the mouthpiece to roll up the LOOPEL. Don’t worry and spin/squeeze the material, it has no impact on the silicone!
  3. After furling up the top of the tube reach the holding ring.
    Now put the „T-piece“ of the mounting clip into the little holes of the orange top – ready.
    Now, the LOOPEL has a diameter of 11 cm / 4.33 inches and fits in all BCD pockets..
 
Material and Storage
Breathing tube and mouthpiece are made from 100 % silicone. So the LOOPEL don‘t contain unhealthy softeners/plasticizers!
Silicone is an extremely dimensionally stable material. That’s why the LOOPEL does not deform and why it keeps its quality, even when it is stored in the BCD pocket for a longer time – e.g. during the dive safari.
 
If the LOOPEL is not in use it should be stored extended. ... fertig: 11 cm Durchmesser
After vacation clean it in fresh water and let it dry at an airy/breezy place to avoid microbes and sources of infections.

Clever solution: The mounting clip of the LOOPEL

 
The mounting clip has 2 LOOPEL functions:Der Clip verschließt den LOOPEL
  1.  It attach the snorkel to the mask
  2.  It closes the snorkel after furling up. Thus the LOOPEL does not require an additional aid
 
 
1.  Attachment to the mask
Like all other snorkels the LOOPEL is attached to the mask.
The mounting clip consists of 2 pieces:
+  Clip, attached to the mask strap

+  Mounting ring, attached to the breathing tube

 
Both pieces can be separated from each other.
If the clip is permanently attached to the mask strap the LOOPEL can be hooked in the clip without taking off the mask from the face!
 
2. Closing the rolled up LOOPEL
But there is another important function of the holding ring, it closes the furled up LOOPEL:
Outside it is shaped like a “T“. When the snorkel is rolled up, this “T-piece” has to be hooked in the two little holes on the top of the breathing tube. Now the LOOPEL is closed.
It remains its compact shape of a snail with a diameter of 11 cm / 4.33 inch only and fits in all BCD pockets.
