Default Whatīs an effecive way to hold down bass practice pads?

Iīm using one of those Gibraltar practice pads, with the round beater pad. The thing is that I'm currently living in a rented apartment, and donīt want to use the screw anchors because those dig into the floor, leaving marks and ruining it. What else can I use besides duct tape on the bottom of my pedal?

If you are on a rug, use strips of HOOK SIDE Velcro. If you're NOT on a rug use the HOOK SIDE Velcro anyway and GET a rug.

Just remember, the HOOK side, not the FUZZY side.
