This will prevent a rug from slipping around, but is not an actual rug pad...as in there is no cushion/padding to the product. If you need it for something purely outdoors, such as a patio or outside deck, it will be ideal. I however am using it for an enclosed entry porch and want something closer to an actual rug pad that still will help the rug dry fast and prevent mold and yuck. I ended up ordering this product instead: http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Exterior-Non-slip-Rug-Pad-4-x-6/5045082/product.html The actual product itself was not the exact size stated. It actually looks as if someone just cut it off a larger portion with a pair of scissors...it was even cut crooked (on a slant) so the edges would need to be trimmed to fit correctly under a specific rug. All that, however, would not prevent it from working as stated. The price has increased since I purchased it, and I'm not sure this product is worth the higher cost.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. It's OK, and will prevent rugs from slipping
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? somewhat accurate
Everything I have purchased from overstock has always exceeded my expectations and the most recent purchase is no exception. All arrive in a timely fashion. The rug is great and it was so much less expensive than in the retail store where I first saw it. The pad works well too.
