Default DW 3002 Loose Hinge Fix?

Hi guys i have a DW 3002 double pedal and recently the hinge has loosened making the pedal move side to side i was wondering if there is any way to tighten it so i doesnt move. It is still under warranty so can take it back if need.

Take it back and have them fix it. When I had vintage DW5000 pedals with the old-style hinge that got loose over time, the only way to fix it was to replace the hinge. This is why on the new 5000's you see that behemoth red hinge nowadays.

In fact, you can buy that hinge separately, almost as an upgrade to your 3002s, BEFORE the stock hinge loosens up.

Although I have to say, I've been playing my 3002s pretty hard for the 4 months I've had them and so far, nothing like that...
