Also includes allen driver tools for adjusting driver to machine, instruction book and raised insert for needle plate to prevent hat from moving up and down with the needle.

The advanced cap frame set gives you a generous area for cap embroidery. Now it’s easy to add logos or your favorite phrase to a wide array of caps. The cap frame embroidery area is 130mm x 60mm, approximately 5” wide x 2.4” tall.

Note: Will not work on the PR600, but will work on the newer PR670e

How to set up the cap frame

{Q}I have a Brother PR I am hooping hats, and I am trying to center the design closer to the bill of the hat. I had the design sized to 2.00 inches in height. then resized to 1.80 it let me move it down a little but not much. The design just sits a little high on the front of the hat. But the machine will not let me move it down. I have looked for help everywhere and find it. Your help is greatly appreciated. Mitzi M. {A}Mitzi, I do not believe the brother hat hoop will allow you to sew closer to the bill of the hat. Some customers are now using the Durkee hat hoop below* which allows you to sew closer to the bill and higher up on the hat too. Please look at the video. John {A}John, The Durkee hoop will be the best bet for her. When the design is moved closer to the bill allowing for a lower placement of the design, it doesn't allow as much space for the needle threader to activate properly. I have had this issue and try not to move the design too close to the bill. However, the Durkee frames are a saving grace and the videos on their site are great. Hope she resolves her issue. And she will be happier. {Q}HoopTech vs Brother Cap Equipment Systems: {A{ Thank you for the question. In addition to the larger sew field, we have a few other differences. Starting with the T-Bar Framing Gauge that replaces the framing gauge from brother. Our gauge is adjustable, making it easy to lay the material down on a structured cap, unstructured cap, bucket caps and visors. It also has a T-Bar to assist in stretching the material so the customer no longer needs an extra set of hands, bag clips or rubber bands. The Gen 2 frame itself provides much better registration while holding the backing in place for the customer. The better registration means way less needle breaks and bunching of stitches. I have added links below to our best demonstration videos on the T-bar and Gen2. These should help highlight the features I have just outlined. Please let me know if you need anything else. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3IO73fwb48c&t=45s how to use the Gen 2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzzvcLV-pgA - structured caps i.e. Richardson https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wScd6bPM3pk - buckets ad visors using Gen 2
