Just thinking about it makes me think you can't. You would have to take the pedals apart and reverse the axle on both pedals that the chain attaches to so you can attach them correctly. Looking at the Iron Cobras, that's why you must order a left-footed version. You may damage something taking them apart in order to reverse the axles.

What's so important that you must have a double pedal? Can you not play with your band with a single?

I am a lefty and own a lefty Iron Cobra.
The fact that Tama have a left hand model makes me think that a 'normal' right hand can't be converted.

The Iron Cobra is switchable from right to left handed.I remember seeing a how to online somewhere maybe youtube,but i'm not sure.You could also go the Tama drum forum,and I'm sure that somone there could help

Logically using the same exact parts,and then just switching them around to assemble a left or right handed pedal is a cost saving measure,and makes perfect sence.

It is 100% possible. All you need is a few Allen wrenches and some patience. All of the pieces just need to be flipped to the opposite side. I just did it to mine and it's working great, just as it should.
