Wow, I am really impressed with these rug pads! I've had an area rug on a "non-slip" pad for 15 years and although I had to move it into position now & then, it wasn't really an issue until I adopted two very lively cats a couple of months ago. They love to run into the bedroom, take a flying leap onto the bed, and then jump off the bed onto the rug in order to skid it across the hardwood floor. I bought the Deluxe Hard Surface and Carpet Rug Pads in order to slow down the skidding, but I honestly didn't expect it to stop entirely. Boy, was I wrong! It's like the rug is glued to the floor now.
I bought a total of 5 of these pads (in different sizes) for a variety of rugs for our hew home, based on another review that recommend this product. These are thin and fairly light weight, initially seeming cheap. I unfolded them and put the rugs on top, and I have to say they really do make a difference: 1. they keep the rugs firmly in place; 2. as thin as they are, they do add a certain plush/cushion to the rugs. I have used these under woven sea grass, dhurrie, and plush rugs. I am using them on ceramic tile, and also bamboo flooring. I totally recommend this product and plan on purchasing several more as I have a few more rugs to purchase.
I bought the pad six months ago to go under a Persian carpet that is in a high traffic area. The pad is a perfect thickness for the medium-weight carpet, and keeps the rug from slipping even when our dogs run through the hall. Before, they were always moving the carpet which had a good quality horse hair pad. I am now ordering more rug pads for other carpets. I highly recommend this pad for its quality, value, and ability to prevent slippage.
I'm so glad I ended up with this one! We just went to all wood floors but got some accent rugs for the bedroom. This rug pad really grips! Also has a little bit of cushioning I think. Much better than the waffle kind especially if there's no furniture to hold it down. This one keeps the rug in place even when there are dogs chasing cats all over it :-)

I've always been happy with the rug pads I've purchased from Overstock. As soon as I purchase a rug, I get the rug pad also. They are always quick on delivery and the prices are great for the quality.

We bought this pad for some new rugs we bought for out new house. We close in a couple of days and the rugs and pads will go down. This is the pad that the rug store said we needed but we saved half by buying it through Overstock. Way to go Overstock.
This item is of the expected quality, but it is not the size described. It was supposed to be 7'8" long, which would have been perfect for the rug it was supposed to pad, but it came less than 7' long. Disappointed by this, and not worth spending $$ in return shipping. Overstock: get your descriptions together: not sure how others didn't notice this. Maybe I just got a different item.
This rug pad has a nice cushy feel to it. The area rug I used it for, adheres well to the pad, but the pad "walks" on a carpeted area. Conversely, I bought another one for use on a wood floor, and that works perfectly, with no slippage.
This is an excellent pad, gives a slight bit of extra padding but the best part is it doesn't slip at all. We have a large dog and 3 cats that love to slide if they can but not on my carpets any more. No more having to strengthen out the throw rugs all the time.
