More retention features on enclosure

Hello Reader,

Here’s another good idea from our backers – adding retention grooves to make strapping the meter to structures easier. So here are 4 notches appropriately sized for zip ties.

Now you can more securely strap your Mooshimeter to just about anything!


We’ll be 3D printing a few to get a feel for the new enclosure features and make sure we want to commit to them on the final injection molded parts.

Schematic and layout updates are underway as we prepare the pre-production designs for regulatory approval. Stay tuned! Drop us a line in the comments or at hello@moosh.im

    Nice idea! (although the top hole can already hold a strap. Maybe a bottom hole on opposite side would already be enough).

    A small demand: Make all those sharp edges smoother please, no need for them to be cutting our fingers ;-)
    Even less sharp, it will still hold tight. the inner edges ot the groves can be sharp as obtus angle and thus not touchable but outer angles should not be sharp imho (same for all edges). Lower strap could go below the connectors, to make sure insulation is kept.

      Thanks Beat! I actually just got a 3d print of the enclosure with the retention features… they’re a little small, so I’ll definitely be revisiting them before committing to a mold.

    Great to see this kind of attention to detail. The slots are a good idea, though I agree they look a bit small. How about a single large slot across the middle of the enclosure? One strap ought to be enough to hold it securely, and would leave room for your logo.

    Would a magnet in the case create disturbance some how? I’m always attaching my multimeter to some metall..

      Nope, a magnet should be fine from an electrical point of view.
      Many of our early prototypes had a pair of magnets. Half our testers liked them, half hated them. They do tend to attract a lot of metal filings.
