Befitted Hat Stretcher & Maintainer

Never wear a hat that’s too tight again! Keep your hat in its proper shape when not being worn. It will also prevent future shrinkage during hat storage. The absorbent wood helps dry out the hat band after it is worn so the moisture does not leave an odor behind.

This Hat Maintainer will help:
Stretch a hat (up to .75 inches)
Maintains your hat for storage
Keeps your hat in its proper shape while not being worn
Prevents a smelly hat by removing and preventing odors inside your hat

How to store and maintain your hat when unworn:
Place your hat upside down on table. Put Hat Maintainer inside hat with logo facing upwards towards the front or back of your hat. Twist black center metal handle counterclockwise until the Hat Maintainer is snug inside hat. Make sure the wooden part is on the area where your head rests on the inside of hat band. Do not over-tighten the Hat Maintainer. Tighten it so it has a similar pressure to when you wear your hat.

How to stretch your hat to a larger size hat:
Use steam on the inside of the hat around the hat band area. This will loosen the material to be ready to be stretched (you can use steam from a boiling pot of water, or an iron on a steam setting). Put Hat Maintainer inside hat with logo facing upwards towards the front or back of your hat. Twist black center metal handle counterclockwise until the Hat Maintainer is snug inside hat. Make sure the wooden part is on the area where your head rests on the inside of hat band. Slowly twist the center handle until the hat is at desired larger size. Leave hat Maintainer overnight to stretch and by the next day your hat should fit perfectly! Repeat this step if necessary to stretch to a larger size.

    Stretch your hat responsibly - Befitted is not responsible for damage from over stretching your hat.

      Works as advertised

      I bought this to stretch my new era 5950 baseball hats. It was able to fix every hat that had gotten too tight over the years. Incredible product!

      Hat stretcher

      This thing works great. Bought one for my Bailey to maintain the size and one for my Akubra that I hadn't worn in awhile. Put it in the Akubra to resize since it shrunk, and had it back to right the next day. Now I can wear it again comfortably.
