You should pad the top so that it pushes down tight when the lid is closed. This is the secret to no shifting. I can fly mine without a problem.

velcro doesn't stick well to these loop-side board materials (at least the one's i've seen).

Better off with stronger velcro (check out the industrial stuff if the regular isn't doing it for you).

+1 mine has plain ol' hook-side velcro on the pedals and plain ol' black rat-fur speaker-cab carpet underneath of 'em, and foam rubber lining the lid that pushes down on everything when closed. it does collect a little lint, but it's rock-solid.

I use industrial strength Velcro, and if I want to move anything I need a screwdriver to get pedals off the board.

However I DO use a sponge lining in the lid of the case to keep things secure when travelling. Bought a car wash sponge for a few cents and glued it (or was it velcroed?) in place.

I found if you throw a piece or two of foam over your pedals prir to installing the cover on your pedalboard it greatly helps to keep everything in it's place. Even if you are using a soft padded gigbag style case you can put extra foam in there.

I knew a guy who roadied for a touring band in the 70's - the well-known roadie motto when carrying gear + the owner was "it ain't mine, and he ain't here". Scary to think about.

Hope all your pedals are all ok.

I like that you opened your case, and the first thing you did was not a) tidy it up, but b) take a photo of it and start a thread here ;-)

Agreed, I use a small and rather colourful blanket to pad the void between the pedals and the foam of the case.
