I think the gloss /put on (clothes)/ is misleading as to the grammar of 
*tuQmoH. *I believe *tuQ* works just like any other verb. It's just that 
the English terminology doesn't use the same grammar as the Klingon that 
makes it confusing.

*tuQ* /wear (clothes)
/*tuQmoH*/put on (clothes)
/*tuQHa'moH*/undress, take off (clothes)

*HIp vItuQ* /I wear the uniform
/*puq vItuQmoH*/I dress the child; I cause the child to wear (something 
/*HIp vItuQmoH* /I dress someone unspecified in the uniform; I put the 
uniform on (someone unspecified)
/*puqvaD HIp vItuQmoH*/I dress the child in the uniform; I cause the 
child to wear the uniform/

*jItuQHa'moH* /I undress someone unspecified; I cause someone 
unspecified to un-wear.
/*puq vItuQHa'moH* /I undress the child; I cause the child to un-wear 
(something unspecified)
/*HIp vItuQHa'moH*/I take the uniform off (of someone unspecified); I 
cause someone unspecified to un-wear the uniform
/*puqvaD HIp vItuQHa'moH*/I remove the uniform from the child; I cause 
the child to un-wear the uniform/
