I've been playing my ten year old Casio midi with the sustain pedal attached by chord in the back.

The pedal keeps moving around. How do I keep it in one place?

Has anyone invented some way to hold it down to the floor, or hold it on to the portable keyboard?

I checked out the CreepNoMore.com website, sold for about $19.95. I'm just wondering how it prevents the pedal from moving from side to side. Obviously it prevents it from moving forwards.

If you are on carpet, get some stick on Velcro and put it on the bottom of your pedal.

I've had luck when gigging by attaching a string to the back of the pedal and looping it around one leg of my stool. Since I'm normally pushing out on it it keeps it pretty much in the same place all the time.

Maybe get a small rug or mat for under the piano?

A rubber type door mat or rug might grip the floor while the mat or rug helps to grip the pedal?
