Default Cajon pedal

Hi all i have been looking at cajon pedals and figured as i have a spare bass drum pedal it must be possible to adapt it work rather than buy one. I don't want to cut it up or anything just adapt it. I have searched online but no real explanation of how to do this. Any thoughts other than playing the pedal in reverse welcome.

You could play a slave pedal with your heal or move the arm of the slave pedal backwards.

I'm gonna be honest, spend the cash and get one of the Gibraltar cajon pedal. They're incredible. Fantastic response, and more comfortable than playing a regular bass pedal with your heel. Also, the flat beater than comes with it is easier on your front plate. I've never been happier with a product!

The LP pedal is a far superior cajon pedal to all others.

I recently got into cajon for acoustic gigs with my band and I picked up a Gibraltar pedal for $75 from Guitar Center.

It works great for what it is. The bracket doesn't want to stay on, especially if I lean back. But it's workable. Some songs I just use my hands. For a steady 4/4 it's great. I can have shakers going with my hands and use my foot for the anchor. Worth it for sure.

One of the best cajon pedals you can buy is the Schlagwerk. Of course it is $350, but for good reason. Personally I don't care for using a pedal with a cajon. I can get a better bass tone with my hand and the pedal interferes with a large part of your playing surface.
