What else can you do with a kick drum pedal?

My spare pedal wants a new job. I know about the cowbell and Tambo mounts. Anything else?

Please post pics if possible, and a parts list if you're feeling saucy. Thanks!

Ive seen snares hooked up to them. Sample trigger pads. Maybe a sideways 14" crash? The possibilities!!!!

Yeah, I knew someone who rigged one up to a snare on the ground. They used a cut-down drumstick instead of a beater and could then keep the 2&4 with their foot while soloing. Kinda cool.

Long time ago I ran a beater shaft through a shaker, so I could shaker with my foot. I’ve seen some commercial versions of that. It required some serious foot control and high spring tension; if I was doing it again, I’d install a stopper for the beater shaft to hit.
