Step 3: Cutting the 45 to Size

Next you will need to cut two of the 1" x 45's to the same length as the pedal board,
I mark these to the board, and cut both a once with my chop saw.
one is glued to the top, bottom edge of the pedal board,
the other is drill out 16" on center (this part is the wall bracket)

<p>You can use cable ties to hold the pedals as well but it means drilling holes thru the backboard. Just cut them off to move the pedals around till yer happy then re-tie them. A neat idea by the way ampRiser!</p>
I&nbsp;love this.<br /> <br /> Do you think that a high strength velcro would be a good substitute for your bent wire retention method?&nbsp;&nbsp;I'm one for swapping and rearranging pedals endlessly, so I&nbsp;would like a less permanent solution.&nbsp; This is a great instructable, thank you.<br />
Thanks!<br /> and Yes, <em>high strength velcro </em>will work fine.<br />
you sir are a genius!! i was looking around my house for velcro to attach my pedals to my pedal board and then i figured &quot;oh why dont i go on instructables?&quot; so i used the coathanger wire method, it works flawlessly for me! <br /> Great i'ble!!<br />
Thanks! <br /> I am No genius though, my Dad had the Idea <br /> for the wired pedals when I was a kid in the 70's<br /> <br />
