To embroider on Santa Hats, Stockings and Shirt Cuffs I would recommend our Small Compact Back of Cap, not this large one. Hoop Tech.

Large back of hat clamp. This Easy to use back of hat clamp attaches to your cap frame driver and has the following inside dimensions: 5.5” x 2.875”

It will work with your existing cap hooping gauge and your machines driver. The optional small version of this clamp has 5.5” x 2.5” dimensions.
