    I've got a PT2 with Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2 Plus mounted.
    I need to add an AC power strip for a few AC only pedals, but, the power supply is right in the middle of the board.
    Even a thin, but, long AC strip won't mount underneath without raising the boards feet off the ground. Anyone have a solution?

    How many ins do you need? because i just got my PT-2 and plan to use a 3 outlet adaptor going to an extension cable as my "strip." That might be a good plan if you don't need that many spaces on a "strip."

    Not sure how much room you've got under your board, but this is what I did under my board to make it work:
    It's a Pedaltrain Pro board. Not sure how great it would work out for you, since I'm not sure if the PT2 and PTPro are the same height under the board. The gray dots in each of the feet are epoxy points (waterproof epoxy, works great for rubber and metal) because the feet kept coming off when I moved the board a tiny bit on the carpet.

    How about just using the AC out on the PP2, and running a small AC power cord that has branches it into 3 different outlets? I think Hosa makes something like that (I think I even may have seen this at Guitar Center)... and then there's something called the Power Squid or something similar... the upshot is that instead of using a strip, it just splits the AC outlet into 3 outlets using an adapter cord... make sense?

    The Voodoo Labs PP2+ is smack dab in the middle closest to the AC in/out. It precludes me from using a typical strip, like your white one. That's my dilemma.

    Good ideas. I'll look around.
    Currently I'm plugging a strip into the AC out, but, this strip isn't secured. I'd like to secure everything (just less to think about/handle). I need 3 AC ins, so, I'll look for a small adapter or a squid.
