    The bottom part that has the felt pads on it mounts directly to your top high hat. Then the top part with the arm slides down over the high hat stem , latches on to the bottom part and will adjust as usual for how much you want your hats open. Then just hit the lever with your stick, it drops the top hat so you can use both of your feet for bass, then the next time you step on the hat pedal, it latches back into place. Hope that helps.

    For adouble pedals you can hit it with your stick and your hats lock shut so you can use hats with the double pedal and not just a ride.
