Default How To Steady A Roland TD-11K Kick Pedal

I just built up a Roland 11K (I upgraded the rubber toms to the mesh setup from the 11KV). I've got a TAMA kick pedal.

I am having a hell of a time keeping the Kick from sliding away from me as I play. I can barely get through half a song before it's inched its way out in front of the set.

Any suggestions? I was thinking a towel, or even buying a small strip of carpet that could sit under the two center legs of the Roland.

Velcro on the pedal, carpet on the floor.

Problem is, I'm on tile, and the set isn't heavy enough to weight down the carpet without the carpet, and pedal, and kick pad inching forward while I play. :/

For about $10, Put the whole kit on a simple 4'x5' low pile, non slip rug from Walmart.

It always worked for my kits.

Or, get a bigger one(6x6?)and your throne will certainly hold it in place.

I remember reading somewhere about some old-timer saying that he tied a string (must be suitably strong) around one leg of his throne, and his pedal, and that worked great for him.
