Fine-tuned to expertly screw-mount popular effects like Strymon and most wah, volume, and expression pedals, this problem-solving bracket can also mount many rare and unique pedals, switching units, and multi-effects.
Offset to sit flush against the pedalboard, this bracket creates clearance for pedal screws without the need for extra spacers.
A strategically placed hole-and-slot combination accommodates screws that are near or far from the edge of the enclosure.
With powder-coated steel construction, Helweg brackets are built to withstand the heaviest touring.
All packages include
- Offset Pedal Mounting Brackets
- #6 Wood screws with washers
- 3M Bumpon feet
- Counter-sunk or flat washers
Includes the basic parts needed for dozens of pedal styles. This pack requires you to reuse your original enclosure screws.

- ▼What can I mount with Helweg Offset brackets?
The Offset brackets pick up where our smaller countersunk brackets leave off. They're larger and deeper and can mount a wider variety of enclosure styles.
For common MXR-style enclosures, our Countersunk brackets will be lower profile and more cost effective.
We recommend a two-bracket pack for small pedals, a three pack for medium-size pedals (Strymon Flint), and a four pack for larger heavier units (wah, volume, and expression pedals).
The Offset brackets can also mount many extra-large switchers and control units. These units sometimes have six or more bottom screws, which can be used to mount additional brackets for extra support.
- ◄What tools are required?
For best results, drill mounting holes in the pedalboard deck using an electric hand drill with a 3/32” drill bit. Drive in and remove the wood screws once before adding the brackets. After that, brackets can be quickly mounted and removed with a drill gun or Phillips screwdriver.
Most enclosures use basic Phillips-head screws. However, mounting some pedals requires alternate-sized Phillips bits, flat head bits, or even specialty bits (TC Electronics).
Always install enclosure screws by hand to avoid damaging the pedal. A drill gun should only be used for mounting wood screws in the pedalboard deck.
- ◄Will I need additional parts?
Our hardware packs facilitate easy installation for thousands of pedals, and we continue to devise new packs for not-so-common ones. If you find an enclosure not yet accounted for, contact us for assistance.
It's often possible to find a suitable screw or spacer at your local hardware store. When sourcing new enclosure screws, line up the threads with an original screw to ensure they match.
- ◄Can I mount pedals to a metal board surface?
This slightly more technical endeavor can be achieved using machine screws backed with a washer and nut. Results will be best with a drill press, quality metal drill bits, and some experience.
