A piece of masonite or 1/4" plywood works well and if you have a 
scrap around is cheaper. I rubber cemented pieces of old bicycle 
inner tube under the corners to help keep it from sliding around . 
Stick-on rubber feet should work as well. My several year old Radio 
Shack footswitch is attached with double sided foam tape. It was 
intended for hands free playback of a dictaphone, but no longer 
appears in the catalog.
