Keeping Cross-Stitching Hoop Tight

I have always had a hard time when I am cross-stitching when my hoop won't keep the material tight. I put a heavy rubber band around the bottom hoop and now I have nice and tight fabric.

Can you describe how you do this? Do you put the rubber band on before you put the top ring on, or after?
