    How are people attaching Line6 ToneCore pedals to their pedalboards?

    These heavy pedals have a thick rubber backing that covers the entire bottom of the pedal. Do you take it off before putting velcro on? If so, how do you get it off neatly? Or is there a velcro that sticks to the rubber backing? Or is there a non-velcro method that works well and doesn't look bad? This is to go on a Pedaltrain board.

    All useful suggestions appreciated.

    I run a verbzilla on my board,, never took off the rubber bottom,
    simply applied enough velcro directly to the rubber and never thought about it again until just now. They are heavy but some good velcro will hold them no problem. Get it from home depot or menards. Industial kind.

    We designed the rubber pad to come off fairly easily. Once you get it started, it should peel off without too much effort and any glue traces left behind can be "rolled" off with your thumb.

    However, someone in engineering (not naming any names) ;) thought it would be a good idea to put criss-crossed ribs across the bottom for some reason. ...I really don't know why. This requires you to cut your Velcro (I use 3M Dual Lock) into triangular shapes to fit. I use Dual Lock on all my pedal boards for the strength and longevity (you will need only about 1/4 the amount as Velcro).

    Just an FYI. I've heard of people doing it both ways successfully.

    Peel it off and cut your velcro into 700,000,000,000 tiny squares.
