About Commando Designs

About Commando Designs

Welcome to my little workshop of creation. 

I’m Tony Davis, Tony D for short.

I’m a Dad, a US Marine, a YouTuber, and a Creator mostly in that order. 

Maj and Erin Davis

YouTube and Commando Designs is my fun side project. It gives me inspiration and personal energy to drive through my normal day to day grind.  I love my full-time jobs of Dad and Marine but, it sure is fun to share the stuff I love to do for fun with the world.

I love making and sharing stuff.  I especially like making stuff my own way.  I’m a design nerd who loves taking great ideas, designs, and cool stuff and putting my creative spin on it.

The name Commando Designs.

The name commando comes from “go commando” or go stripped down.  Go with the bare minimum.  I like to think of “going commando” in the design world as getting to the “Zen” of design. The core or essence. Why do you actually love some things, products, or designs? It’s usually because they “just ***king work”, “grab your interest”, or just flat out “inspire you”.  That’s why I study design. Because when you get design right, it just ***king works.  That’s awesome design.

How to keep your ThrustMaster Racing Pedals from slipping across your floor

The easiest way to keep your driving pedals from slipping across the floor is to attach them to a non-slip carpet protector mat, better known as a carpet mat or officer chair roller mat.

ThrustMaster Wheel and Pedal Set uses 2 M6 bolts to attached to Roller Mat.

This is what a simple roller mat looks like
This setup has worked awesome for me. I love the ThrustMaster Wheel and Pedals for my XBOX One.
