Single detached damper pedals don't tip over, but they tend to creep around somewhat on the floor.

Triple pedal units like the RPU-3 are much more stable, I recommend you go that route.

It would be great if Roland came up with a fixed 3 pedal unit to fit with the FP-7F stand. Something what Yamaha has done for their DGX or Casio for their PX series.

Make a runner along the floor with a hole cut out to fit the pedal in and attach the runner to the legs stop the pedal moving and this will also make your piano stand stronger. The crappy laminated woods they use for these stands should be easy to get hold off.

No because typically the base is both wider and longer than the pedal. On some kinds of floors the pedals might move around and every day or two I'd push it back into position with my foot. On stage they tape them to the floor but at home just check it is in the right place. Kind of like checking in the piano bench is in the right place.

Actually it is an advantage to have a moveable pedal because you can put it where you like. With a fixed pedal you have no choice about location. I find I prefer it over to the right than the standard location

I've not gotten around to it yet, it's low on my list, but my plan is to make the runner out of a strip of aluminum. If you look at the bottom of the pedal there is a cover plate held on with screws. The aluminum runner would replace the cover plate and be held in place with the same screws. Other screws would go up from the runner into the bottom on the stand's "feet".

There is a pad that keeps the pedal from creeping. I think it is called creep-no-more.

Here is one I made myself. Your heel rests on the back end to hold it in place.

I had a pedal (Roland?) that had a flip out (well, more of a rotate out) flap of rubber where you would place the heel of your foot and thus keep the pedal from traveling.

I had that pedal for years before I discovered that piece of rubber for my heel. Boy did I feel dumb when I first figured that out.
