To use the SHOE CLAMP, attach it to the drive bar on your embroidery machine, open the upper clamping window with the large clamping knob, insert the shoe side or tong, align the shoe using the window sides for reference and tighten the clamping knob to get the desired hold. Then run a trace to make sure that there is enough room inside the shoe for the design.
The SHOE CLAMP is mounted directly to the machine drive bar (same as your cap driver), for a positive attachment. Machine specific adapters bolt to the clamp body and are used to attach and adjust the clamp to fit your embroidery machine. Hoop Tech makes adapter brackets for all major embroidery machine brands.
