Depending on the size of the buttons that you will be using, you may need to replace the template already in The Buttonholer.
Turn the adjusting knob to the right until the cloth clamp is extended as far as it can go.
Located on the bottom, pull the lip of the retainer plate away from The Buttonholer, and then open the plate.
Since the clamp is extended as far as it can go, the template should come out easily.
4 additional templates are included with The Buttonholer. Each template creates a different size button hole.
If you are unsure which template is right for your project, check the back of each template for the diameter of the holes that they make.
Place the template into The Buttonholer, and then close the retainer plate.
