I took a couple of pieces of 1"x6"x36" boards, a piano hinge, a couple 
of springs and a momentary pushbutton switch made for sort of cabinet 
interlock system and made my own footswitch.

It works like a champ.

I can rest my foot on it without holding it suspended over the board 
with just a slight, but not too light, increase in pressure, go key 

It's big enough I never lose it under the desk.  It sits on the carpet 
and doesn't move around until I want and then it's just a matter of 
repositioning it with my feet.
