Mounting Giggity and Sparkle Drive Mod pedals on a pedaltrain.

I've just got a brand new Voodoo Lab Giggity, and I'm at a loss as to how best to mount it on my pedaltrain. Unlike every other pedal I have which has trivially removable rubber feet, the Giggity's feet surround the screws that hold the bass plate on. It looks like there are washers or similar under the rubber too, and that even if I were to force the feet off, the screws would still stick out of the base far enough to making velcro unworkable.

I'd like to know how other people have solved this problem. Thanks.

I just taped over the screwmounts and stuck the two pedals to a PT-Pro. In a lot of instances meddling with board tearing and re-affixing both of them, quite a number of gigs, and even a demo I filmed last week where the pedalboard was almost hanging upside down, they don't seem to be going anywhere.

I just removed the feet, replaced the screws and added velcro to the bottom.
Just wiggle it around while pushing down It stays well for me.

I really like mine. I hate the overdrive, but it works really well as an end-of-chain buffer or even a solo boost.

What, exactly, does a Giggity do? I've read the descriptions and I can't tell.
It does the things your amp's preamp stage does: eq your signal (with body and air), add some compression or grit (with loudness), and hit the next amp stage harder (or quieter) (with master). The purpose of this is really to fine tune you guitars signal (or amps response); run it into an amp you are already happy with to tweak, or add some versatility too. While you can find extremes, this is quite a subtle pedal in general.

The sun/moon knob is (intentionally?) a bit mysterious. At a high level it lets you select between for different voicing a for the pedal, changing the eq curve and how much grit the pedal adds in. Exactly what each one does I couldn't tell you, only that the sun side is brighter, and perhaps the least change from the incoming signal, and each step is progressively darker.

I'm still experimenting with it (there is a staggering number of ways you could use this) but I've had good results so far at brightening up my amp, adding a bit of grit for drive and fuzz pedals to hit before the amp (takes some of the fizz or brittleness off the top end).

If you haven't already, watch the videos on voodoo lab's YouTube, and perhaps the premier guitar namm clip. Seeing the pedal in action is much clearer than reading a bunch of words.
