The spring loaded clamp is actuated by a single lever, making clamping easy. Stainless steel adapter arms are available to fit all major machine configurations. If you use plastic hoops now, we have a clamp to fit your machine.

The ICTCS-1 is a quick on quick off tool that thousands of embroiders have in their bag of tricks. Clamping systems fill a need that the embroidery industry has for hooping things that just don’t fit well into traditional hoops. Clamping systems are easy to use, versatile, and limited only by the imagination of the embroiderer. The ICTCS-1 is a valuable tool if you have a single head or hundreds.
