With the Line-Master Gem V2 footswitch I 
recommended in a previous e-mail 

A. It is heavy enough that it won't move around nd 
has a non slip material on its floor contact area

B. Hinge... Sminge  - It is circular so you can hit
it from any angle

C. If you don't like it after using it for a weekend contest
you can return it.
