How do you guys secure your Eventide pedals?

    I've got both the Timefactor and the Space. Neither of them seem to like velcro except the for middle part where all the legal text stuff is. With the velcro only in the middle, my pedals rock a little bit. What do you guys do to lock your Eventide's down?

    I had the same problem. Solution was to pull the rubber base off the pedals and attach the Velcro directly onto the base. Not ideal, but it was the only way they'd stick.

    I've heard that some folks here have removed the foam/rubber-like pieces under the pedal and proceeded to put dual-lock on them. I've been thinking about getting some of these:

    These are said to hold up to 4lbs, so it should be no problem to mount these under an Eventide *Factor without having to remove the pads underneath or damage them for that matter.

    Although these may not be gig worthy, they're certainly cheap enough to give them a try and put them to their paces. I have used the white ones at my house to mount alarm sensors and even hang a wreath on my door and the wreath never fell at all (and it was significantly heavy and it was subjected to cold climates since it was outside).

    Have you tried larger Zip ties? Thats what I use on big pedals like my Klon.

    I removed the rubber and used bicycle chain links. May not work if you're using a pedaltrain or metal-top board- works perfect for wood. All of my pedals are secured like that, with the exception of my whammy, which I had to use a large zip-tie for.
