Wrap a small wide rubberband around the screw until it is snug. This helps long time Hans' customer Gloria Anderson tighten the screw on her Deco 600 hoop!.

Here is a tip from Hans' customer Eileen O. Take an empty plastic milk container --a gallon size works well for large hoops! Cut out the bottom and top. Now when you want to spray  stabilizer that is already in your embroidery hoop (see "Hooping Really Thick Fabrics") set the container in the hoop and spray away! Residue clings to the insides of the container, not your hoop or cutting table.
