Double Bass Pedal/Bass Drum Problem

I noticed today when I was playing, I had to stop because when I would use my bass drum pedal, the bass drum would rock back and forth, like outward then toward me. Especially during the double pedal. I noticed a fold in the carpet by where the arms are would that be the problem? I don't know how to fix it, or what's going on.

Check and make sure everything's right with your hoop clamp (the thing that holds your pedal to the kick drum). I don't want to sound patronizing, but start with the most obvious thing first.

Not that I want to sound patronising either, but in all honesty if I thought that this could potentially be a problem then I would have checked it as a first point of call.....long before I asked the forum. This one can be answered by you a hell of a lot quicker and easier than it can be by us. Simply move the drum away from the fold and see if you still have the problem. ;-)

Well I figured out the problem, the nut holding the leg in place was loose. But also the nut is broken, so I need to get a new one.
