10 to 1 Mechanical Advantage
The framing gage with its lever arm, gives the cap framer a 10 to 1 mechanical advantage when getting the cap to lay flat before sewing. This saves a great deal of energy when framing up large orders. Only Hoop Tech has the patented Tensioning Arm. The Tensioning Arm gives even the inexperienced cap framer the ability to frame a cap tight…..even low profile un-constructed caps. It’s the easiest way to stretch a cap tight. Once you try it, you’ll be amazed at how easy it can be to frame a cap.
Locked Into Place
The T-BAR Framing Gage allows the cap framer to pull the cap panels down flat against the surface of the gage. While the cap and backing are sandwiched the Cap Frame is latched, and the cap and backing are locked into place. This marriage of cap and backing is what allows the Hoop Tech Cap Frame to hold the best.
