I too had several rugs where the backing had come off due to washing plus even when they were new they still slipped around a little and I would get my foot caught on the edges. Previously I had fallen and broken 3 bones in my leg and ankle. With this product the rugs stay put, even the corners. I do not fear that I will fall again because of loose rugs. The application of the product to the back of the rugs is very easy and almost no order. I highly recommend this product.Read More
I had 2 rugs that the backing had come off due to washing them frequently. The rugs were still fine, but I couldn't get them to stay put on the floor. This product solved that problem, cheaper than new rugs!!!Read More
Questions & Answers
Hello cjh24. Thank you for your interest in the Fiber-Lok Non-skid Rug Backing. Yes, this is made to either add to rugs you may have just created, or or old rugs to help extend their usefulness. I hope this answer helps you, and thanks for shopping with us.
Is this safe for wood flooring? What makes it stick to the floor?
This is a liquid latex that you would apply to the back of the rug, you would let it dry and then it acts as if its a skid pad.
