For Christmas I got a fairly expensive digital piano, the whole 88-keys. Anyways, along with it I got a heavey duty on stage X frame stand. I’m very happy with the stand, it’s built super heavy duty have no issues trusting it with the weight of my digital piano but the back of the piano is hard plastic and it seems to slide around on the stand a bit. I’m looking for a way to lock it down a bit more so if I get playing hard on it, it will not move on the stand. I’ve thought of two solutions but before implementing either of them, I wanted to see what you guys do and what seems to be the standard fix.

1.) Cut up one of those noodle pool toys and put it over each end of the X stand so provide some cushioning to the digital piano will not slip.

2.) Use some two-sided Velcro on both keyboard and stand.

What say you?

I had a problem with a cat tree where the cat would launch himself into it from halfway across the room and it would skid several inches. I went to a hardware store, and in the furniture accessories where they have things like glides, cups, and casters I found some sheets of stick-on non skid clingy rubber material. Solved my problem completely and seems like it would be just the thing to stick on the bottom of your keyboard in the areas where it sits on the stand.

That sounds like a good idea. I'll see if I can find some and give it a shot. Thanks

Well, sometimes the most simplistic approach works! I went to the hardware store about 30-minutes ago. I got a 6 foot section of foam pipe insolation for $1.49. I cut two 14" sections of it and put it on both tops of my X-Stand and put a little bit of black electrical tape on it to keep in place and it's perfect. Keyboard is sitting solid on there now and it does not look bad either being the pipe insolation is black as well.
