    Anyone have issues with the velcro not sticking to the pedal train board?

    Mine is peeling up on two slats? One with a fairly heavy whammy 5, the other with nothing on it.

    I always remove the Velcro these ship with and use dual lock.

    did you start setting pedals on it as soon as you set the velcro down? Sometimes, especially with heavy and large pedals like the whammy, its not a bad idea to let the glue cure for a bit, before you start setting pedals, and then pulling them off to move them to a better location, I have a first generation PT, and I never had the velcro come off and I had an RP300 and a Morley wah on mine. However, i could see it as a possibility that Pedaltrain's velcro is no longer as high of quality as it was then.

    Or ask pedaltrain to send you more. Might have been a bad batch.

    Pedaltrain Velcro is awful. Buy industrial strength velcro from a hardware store and you'll have no issues.

    No. Actually, when I needed to remove velcro from pedaltrain, that was really not easy. Somtimes I need to hold pedaltrain with my foot to remove pedal from it.

    However, I had problem, that velcro comes off from some pedals.
