    I have just noticed a reference to a "trolly string" in one of the postings. What is it?

    Can anyone help please?
  2. That's a good answer. Personally, I own a number of hats with the wind cord/string/trolley and I never use it - too much bother. But I've thought about it a few times when the wind whips around.

    I think they are very useful, used mine today, its terribly windy out in Palm Springs. They do add a decorative touch, a bit of class I guess.
  4. A hat with a wind trolly tends to have an impish personality. If you don't use the string, you will wish you had. If you use it, the hat will stay perched in place, no matter how windy it gets. This lulls you into not using it next time...I think our hats and the wind are conspiring together, against us! lol

    That would certainly be my "luck".

    I don't have a hat w/ a trolly, but for the OP, here's a pic from our hat buddy, ValEag. It is the bottom pic of the post below. You can see the "button" of the trolly tucked near the bow.

    Thanks for that. How is the "cord" attached to the hat?

    Wind trolley installation

    Colinlyne -

    There is a very good thread explaining the installation of the Wind Trolleys that can found in the Sticky - "Start Here - Links to Important Hat Forum Threads". Or, just click here.

    Basically, I believe it is just stitched in place under the ribbon.
