Hi, as the title says. The four rubber feet prevent velcro to stick, and if I remove the rubber feet the little screw heads will be touched by the ground.

Don't have a SY1000 by my own, but on other big devices I was allway able to use 3m Duallock. It is higher than normal verlcro and a lot stronger.

I did not remove the rubber feet but did use Velcro. It works well.

I used the Velcro that came with the BCB-90X

I like your setup. The switch 'covers' look interesting.

Meccano, yes seriously. My SY1K is sat in a rack drawer now but previously when on a board I used Meccano. I removed one bolt at a time and then reinstalled with an L bracket to hold it to the base of the pedal, the L brackets then wrapped around the edge of the pedal's shelf and were fixed on the edge.

Longer Meccano strips should work on a flat board. Those pedal board fixers that look like bicycle chain links aren't long enough.

I have also used Meccano before as well. Very flexible!

I'm probably late to the party - these days there should be 3D places around that could print that. About 7 years ago I had a prototype guitar lock* 3D printed in a shop in Prague. They even created files based on my drawings.

*lock as in 'a thing that allows you to secure your guitar using a standard Kensington lock'

For 90% of cases standard or heavy duty Velcro is more than sufficient - if you are needing something for serious touring then Meccano or similar works as suggested and if you are booked to play on the next Taylor Swift tour there will be a budget for a custom pedalboard solution. In short - there is no need to build a better mousetrap...

I have had success with a version of the stacked velcro approach. With 1/4" thick squares of wood, about 1.5" x 1.5" x .25"  I put hook velcro on one side and loop velcro on the other. You still velcro the device and pedal board, but these act like steps.

Another solution that works really well, especially on metal pedalboards (and many other surfaces) is 3m VHB tape - works well where you need blocks as spacers to address the original question. I use this stuff for all sorts of purposes where I need a quick extra strong or semi permanent solution - especially as it is as strong but often easier to remove than high strength Velcro. I use it for temporarily fixing templates when routing guitar bodies (there is no way you want these to move) and even fixing facias and such like invisibly to furniture - once you try it you will always want to keep a roll around
