If you have ever wondered about what kind of specialist tools would exist in the tool kit of a professional milliner or hat maker, then allow us to introduce you to the professional hat ruler for cap size measurements.
This handheld device allows for the easy, stress free measurement of the cap size (otherwise referred to as the circumference) of various sorts of head wear for both men and women. It looks like a complicated piece of measuring equipment, but the truth is that it is relatively simple to use and understand.
By placing their thumb in the circular handle opening, and the other fingers of the same hand in the other opening, a person using this tool can control the movement of the indicator needle across the sliding scale of the instrument and thus, be able to take measurements of the inner circumference of a cap, hat or other forms of head wear.
The hat ruler is both lightweight and compact, made from polished, durable metals that are resistant to rust and corrosion. It is also a fully analog device and does not require any batteries to operate it. It is available in three different configurations based on the sizes of hats that they can measure:
- 42 – 52 cm,
- 49 – 62 cm, and
- 52 – 70 cm.
Apart from taking measurements in centimeters, the hat ruler also has gradations for Easy Fit (E) and Fitted (F) measurements. Although the look and feel of the hat ruler makes it seem like it is meant only for members of the distinguished hat making profession, because of how easy it is to use, the tool can be just as useful to regular people looking to take measurements for hats or for boutiques and clothing stores that would prefer to take measurements for customers rather than have them try on different hats and stain them.
So, if you have a passion for hats, caps and helmets of all kinds, then this hat ruler is a must have accessory for you. Good thing that it’s portable too, because that means you can carry it around easily when you go shopping for a new hat.
