Default DW 4002 Double Pedal Help

Hello everyone, I am new to this awesome community

I just bought a set of DW 4002 double pedal (like 2 hours ago) and I cant seem to find out how to adjust the beater travel distance (the distance the beater is from the bass drum head). They did not include an instruction manual, and I could not locate an electronic manual online.

Can anyone give me some help with this major issue?

The beaters are so far back that they are hitting my shin when they come back.

I tried playing with the spring tension...no shot.

Thanks in advance

Just looking at pics of it online I don't know that there is a way to make that adjustment. Can you post some pics (somewhat close up) of the front and sides of the beater assembly

Agreed, it doesn't seem to be an option. As far as I can see, the spring rocker assembly is fastened via an allen screw that tightens into a flattened section of the otherwise round main axle. If the axle was completely round, it would be possible to change the angle by loosenin said allen screw.
