How to Place Hat Size Reducing Tape into a Hat
Self-stick size reducer works with any hat that has an inner band.
Before peeling off the adhesive backing place the tape under the inner band to test how much adjustment you need.
For a small adjustment the tape can be placed in the back, or cut in half and be placed symmetrically to either front and back, or left and right sides of the hat depending where you feel it loose. One strip will reduce a 1/2 hat size, approximately 1 cm.
For a larger size adjustment, use 2 tapes, place on front and back.
For maximum size reduction place the size reducing tape all around the hat.
1. Hold the middle of the tape to center of the front/back of the hat, to estimate where to start.
2. Peel about 1.5-2" portion of the tape, and place under the inner band as close to the stitching as possible. Keep pulling the self-adhesive paper back as you move along.
3. Press firmly in place.
