Default Attaching clips to top hats

Can I see a pic of the bottom of a finished hat? Having a hard time visualizing where to attach the clip! I plan to use alligator clips with teeth.

Default Re: Attaching clips to top hats

I wish I could help you but I haven't figured out how to post pictures yet.

But having seen the bottom of a top hat with alligator clips I can say it is pretty straightforward. You take two clips and glue them to the underside of the brim.

They should be parallel to each other and much closer to the inner circle, as opposed to the outer edge.

HTH.

I cover them upside down so the flat side rests against the top hat on each side of the opening...
