Is there a proper way to position manually welded hats?

There are various reasons why the default ROBLOX hat system is untenable for my project, so I've resorted to welding them manually to the desired anatomical parts of my Character (I use a synthetic Head for animation purposes).

I inserted all the Hats that I wanted into a new place using InsertContent, and I'm welding them to the desired Head like-so:

--"hat" is a cloned hat from the original Hat Instances
--"character" is, of course, a reference to the character Model
handle = hat.Handle
hatWeld ="Weld", handle)
hatWeld.Part0 = handle
hatWeld.Part1 = head
hatWeld.C1 = --<<--
handle.Parent = character

The problem is, that setting the C1 offset of the weld to hat.AttachmentPos doesn't always work - it positions some hats correctly and others not at all correctly (I've tried variants of C0/C1 and +/-attachmentPos, too).

How are we supposed to position Hats correctly using their default properties?

I wish I could help you, but I didn't understand anything you said XD MUSHR0OM 0 — 10y
Hopefully someone has experimented with this before as well, then. :) duckwit 1404 — 10y
But, whenever I use a LoadAsset script, it properly positions the hat on your head. Try experimenting with something like that. :D MUSHR0OM 0 — 10y
Sorry, but I don't want to use the default ROBLOX hat system, primarily because I don't want it to be positioned on the normal Head and because of the "=" key. duckwit 1404 — 10y

Not all hats are made with the same sides facing upwards. The attatchmentPos might have to be tweaked for each individual hat. Just a guess though. OniiCh_n 410 — 10y
