      Got 24v,

      Please make sure you attach the long side first and then pivot the shorter side to catch. I do have an installation instruction a few pages back in this thread. After that you may need to "slide" the dead pedal up and down on the incline to get the Velcro to bite in. I test fit every pedal in our Routan before shipping. There may also be inconsistancies in the width of incline/carpet. If you feel that there is too much play you can bend the long side by laying it on a hard surface with something under it so that you don't damage anything. Then while pressing down, bend the long flange inward. If needed do the small side. I don't think it is the Velcro, but more an inconsistancy in the incline if anything, like I said before I test each and every one in our van,there have been a few that needed a tweak to get them tighter. The Velcro will not grip like the normal two sides of Velcro does. I will say that ours has been in since day one and grips fine, even after removing it almost 80 times(that's about how any are out there) for test fitting. I also just had a PM last week questioning the same thing, these being the same exact question. The same shop is making them and I'm using the exact same Velcro I always have. I want everyone to be happy, satisfied, and most importantly safe. I'll work with you however is needed but would prefer to do so on a PM basis and I'll provide you with my cell number so you can call me directly and I can help you to adjust it. So if you'like to get a hold of me please PM me. If it gets down to it I can add a hole for a screw that would get screwed into the plastic incline, but I'll have to pull our carpet back to check what's under it, hopefully nothing, I'd prefer that as a last resort(not a fan of adding screws through carpet).

      Thanks,

      Hi 58kafer,

      Got new Routan yesterday. The foot rest design was killing me and in no time I made it dirty and it won't be better day by day. I finally saw this. Can you please get me one? Please give me your paypal account and how much and will send you the money and address in no time. Thank you for the great idea.

      Hi,

      Just got a new Routan on Thursday and am concerned about that carpeted dead pedal in our very snowy climate. Do you still have these covers available?

      Thanks

      Glad you like it!

      I'm down to the final 9 left--and I probably won't make anymore after them. There are just about 100 out in circulation, something I never dreamed of. Scattered across the US, several to Canada and one to Hawaii! Thanks to everyone so far, be one of the last few to get one!

      This is as of 11-19-2012

      Got it today. Thanks! I will have to put it in when there is actually daylight. Leave home in the dark and get home in the dark. Looks very good.

      Thanks again,

      With the weather being what it is here, and everyone else either in or going into winter mode,
      the demand for this should go up. I can't imaging your last couple will last long.

      We love ours...
      Thanks Kafer!

      Received the dead pedal on Friday, looks great - I will try a covert install tomorrow as it is a Xmas present for my wife (its her Rout) and I am sure it will fit great. Thanks again!
