    I use this for all my pedals and PSU. No zip ties no velcro....No hassle

    I see other dudes struggling with PSU mounts or this and that. Many ties it's not needed....just use dual lock :)





    Makes pretty neat boards too

    Ummm but damn is it nice and does it work

    I, too, use Dual Lock on my pedalboards. Far superior to Velcro.

    Bill, tgo

    I swear by this stuff now. I change things around a lot and I really appreciate how easy it is to remove with no residue.

    Have you noticed a huge price increase? A couple of months ago I bought a 2 - 10 foot roll off Amazon for $13. Now it's 30 lol. I am rebuilding my board this weekend and managed to find a meager 6 foot roll for $18.

    I've used it and it works well. I have gone back to the industrial grade velcro though. It holds as good as anything else I've come across.
    I am holding my loaded Pedaltrain Pro 6 inches off the floor by one pedal here.

    I use the 1.5" wide strips that came with my pedal board. They work great.

    There should be a rule that either the hook OR loop side should always go on the board.
    This way buying used pedals is way easier

    But is it still squishy!?!?!


    Main reason I dont like the Crow on my board.

    Dual Lock is nice and stiff!!! No squishy


    Looks strong as hell though!

    You reuse the velcro from used pedals? I burn that stuff lol. It grosses me out for some reason.

    This is what I use. As you can see it really isn't that thick and isn't squishy. It holds tight and is pretty solid feeling.

    Pedaltrain boards come with the same stuff as what I like to use...which can also be bought at Walmart.

    If the pedal has the correct side, yes.

    You'd touch another guys guitar, with his skin cells, boogers, snot and saliva particles from coughing and sneezing, oils on the fretboard, etc., and a piece of velcro that's under a pedal essentially sealed from life around it is a problem?

    Maybe I'm just cheap and lazy.
    Maybe I just dont care.
