Mighty Hoop Instructions Mighty Hoop 5.5 Inch 5.5 Inch Mighty Hoop Midwest Products Inc. www.mightyhoop.com or www.hoopmaster.com 1-800-900-0741 or firstname.lastname@example.org 2-12-2010 This is a temporary set of written instructions. We did not have the entire written instruction manual complete, but wanted to get your order shipped as soon as possible. We will have better written instructions available on our web site in the near future. We currently have a few instruction videos online that are much better then any written instructions. Look for the demo video page or support page at www.mightyhoop.com Please also remember to read the warnings document that was provided with the shipment. It has some very important information about magnet safety. The Mighty Hoops are very easy to use, especially if you have already used the HoopMaster for normal hooping. Please watch the normal HoopMaster videos at www.hoopmaster.com if you have never owned a HoopMaster. The following instructions are a few things you will need to know. *Remember to trace your design to make sure it will fit in the hoop. The Mighty Hoops may line up different then your standard hoops or the center may be in a different spot. Always make sure you have a garment hooped when you do the trace, otherwise the hoop could get caught on the needle plate when it moves. As soon as you receive your hoops, try them on your machine to make sure the brackets fit correctly. They should snap in just like your standard hoops. The bottom of the hoop should rest on the needle plate of the machine. Remember you may need to adjust the arms of your machine to a larger sewing field if you are using one of the larger Mighty Hoops. If the hoops do not seem to lock in the machine correctly or they do not rest on the needle plate, please give us a call. *Some hoops have been shipped with a piece of cardboard inserted between the upper and lower parts of the hoop. This is only to protect the hoops in shipping, but you could save this for use when storing the hoops. Mounting the adaptor brackets Some hoops need to be shipped with the brackets not attached to the hoop. The following are the instructions to attach these brack- ets. You will need a phillips head screw driver and a 11/32 nut driver or wrench. If you are attaching brackets to a 10x10” or 11x13” you will first need to remove the lower ring from the hoop. You can keep the lower ring attached to the hoop for smaller sizes. Next position the brackets with the label side up, on each side of the hoop. Some machines have brackets that are identical for the left or right, and some have a special bracket for each side. Having the label up should put the brackets on the correct side of the hoop. The brackets will sit on the top side of the hoop in the little recessed area that is cut out for them. See Figure 1 Figure 1 Some brackets also come with a little spacer. See Figure 1A. This spacer is to be inserted between the hoop and the bracket so that it holds the bracket a little higher. Figure 1A Spacer The way the screws go through is different between the small sizes of Mighty Hoops and the large sizes. The small hoops, like 4.25” or 5.5”, the nuts will go on the underside of the hoop. The large hoops, like 10x10” or 11x13” the nuts will go on the top side. The small hoops also have a screw that has a normal round head. The large hoops have a screw that has a countersink flat head since it needs to be flush on the underside of the hoop. See Figure 2 and Figure 3. Figure 2 Figure 3 4.25” or 5.5” mounting 10x10” or 11x13” mounting Just tighten the nuts with the 11/32 nut driver and phillips head screw driver. You should check these screws from time to time to make sure they do not come loose. After mounting the brackets you could compare them to the brackets on one of your standard hoops. They should look very similar. Please check our web site for more instructions and videos. We will be updating the site often as this is a very new product. Thank you for purchasing Mighty Hoops.
