Pedal Power 2 Plus and Pedal Train II Installation Issue

Post by gulfsidebo » Mon Jan 29, 2018 8:54 am

Hi All,

I am new to the board so I apologize if this has already been discussed, but I couldn't find it during a search. Yesterday, I installed my VL Power 2 Plus onto the underside of my Pedal Train II using the VL brackets. Everything works as it should, but when I flip it over (right side up), it seems as though the Power 2 Plus touches the ground a wee bit so the board is no longer flat on all 4 corners. This seems to be a bigger problem when using the wah pedal. Has anyone run into this? The power adapter holes are lined up perfectly and the Power 2 Plus snapped right into place as it should. It's almost too tight because I don't think I can get it out unless I unscrew one of the brackets. Thoughts? Thanks.

Attached pic of my board just for fun...not the underside, but I can attach one if needed.

The original PedalTrain boards are not compatible with the brackets I think you have. The brackets we make are for use with the "Classic", "Novo", and "Terra" series boards.

I am unsure if you can still get the older style brackets for the original PedalTrain boards from Pedaltrain.

You may be able to use something like Dual Lock to mount the Pedal Power to the underside of the rails.

Thanks, JohnClark. I've sent the attached pictures to Pedal Train and heard back that I need to use the BRKT-1 brackets for the Pedal Train 2. Unfortunately, the Amazon ad was a bit misleading/confusing because it said:

Mounts all Voodoo Lab Power Supplies underneath the Classic, Novo and Terra series boards.
Will fit legacy models, PT-3, PT-Pro and PT-Grande
Mounting screws included

Unfortunately for me, I now have to purchase new brackets and hope someone might want to buy my barely used ones on Reverb.
