This pad was practical, simple and inexpensive but really did the job for a runner I was putting on a hardwood floor. Even tho it was a nice rug with a backing, I wanted something to go between the rug and the hardwood floor. The pad could be easily trimmed to fit exactly under the rug and was truly skid-proof. I recommend it.
I was pretty skeptical that this rubber rug pad was going to prevent my rugs from sliding all over my newly finished hard wood floors, but I have to admit, these are awesome! Both my dogs and I are constantly stepping on my rug, and it has never moved an inch. Very good product for a very good price. I totally recommend it!
The last time I bought rug pads, they had a sticky substance on them to hold the rug. These do NOT have that. I was very skeptical when I felt them and wondered how on earth they would work on my super slick floor. I just reviewed the Forester rugs that I bought this for and guess what. They work beautifully. Neither the dog nor I have gone flying since I put these down. Obviously, you can cut these to size which I didn since they are rectangular and my rugs were oval. I simple laid them down, placed the rugs over them and trimmed the edges. Done. I am very pleased and surprised how well they work. About once per week, I notice a slight creep of the rug to one side or other, showing a mere fraction of an inch somewhere. Just move the rug back. Again, what a competitive price as you get TWO to use. Great value.
