Stampede Strings

August 4, 2011

Our hand-crafted chinstraps work great for hats with chinstrap hooks. But how can you take advantage of the quality of kangaroo leather when you don’t have hooks?


David Morgan’s new stampede string work simply by slipping the cotter pins underneath the sweatband and then bending the pins to keep the hooks in place.


Follow these simple instructions and you’re set!


Slide pins through the sweatband

Hold the cotter pins together and slide them between the stitches at the base of the sweatband. A pair of pliers can be helpful.


Pull the pins all the way through

Pull them all the way through until the leather braid touches the sweatband.


Bend the pins



Bend the pins outward, as close to horizontal as possible, so they will not slip back through the sweatband.


Finished look

This is how it should look beneath the sweatband.
