Default Double bass pedal help..

So I have a Sound Percussion double bass pedal. (As seen here: http://www.amazon.com/Sound-Percussi.../dp/B003H8ZYZS) I really like the speed and such, but it's such a hassle, I constantly have to keep returning them as I somehow break them. Now I've learned it's just a matter of fixing the problems myself, as I've seen solutions to many, now that I'm more experienced. But now I have a problem I can't seem to fix. The left pedal's chain has slid or something, and now the pedal bottoms out (I guess you would say) before the beater has a chance to strike the drum itself. I've tried everything I can think of, so now I'm looking here. If anyone could help, it would be GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks,
Cheezay

ditch the SP pedal and go with a Pearl 902 or something of higher quality. I got the same SP double pedal and broke it in less than a week, a u-joint on the drive shaft fell apart.

Anyway it sounds like your beater angle adjustment slipped and need to be re-adjusted.

Did you get a manual for it?

No. But even when I try doing that, it doesn't work. And I'm trying to see if I can work it for at least a while longer, if I can't find anything quickly on Craigslist, although I plan on upgrading soon.

if you could upload some pics or a short vid we might be able to help you. SP makes some pretty decent stuff but that pedal is not one of them, maybe one out of 10 is OK, I got the Pearl 902 and it was a huge step up. this is just for my e-kit. I use Speed Cobras on my acoustic.
