I got a kick drum pedal with the drum kit I got some years ago and I've always had a problem with it. Once I've adjusted the wing nut/screw from the pedal onto the hoop of my kick drum, I've always noticed that the base of the footboard always clicks off the tip of the screw, so in order to fix this problem I've adjusted the tilt of the kick drum towards me but I've found out that tends to limit the drums resonance and could damage the hoop over time, so I am looking for a replacement pedal in order to be able to level out the drum and have no clicking from footboard to wing nut.
If there is any confusion I'll get hold of a picture.

Does this pedal have some kind of flexible strap, or just a straight piece of metal? If the former, just shorten the strap by a quarter inch or so. If the latter, is there a way to raise the post that supports the beater?
