While I will never understand why rug pads are so darn expensive, I will say that this one does the trick! Our 10' runner (bought specifically so our poor little slippy slidey dog would have some traction while playing in our mainly hardwood home) used to slide all over the place, buckle, and bunch up upon impact. After using this mat, it will not budge. We even tried to make it slip or wiggle, but it wouldn't budge an inch. So, if you need an anti-slip rug pad, this one is a keeper!
It works well under the 2X8 Safavieh runner that I also purchased at Overstock. It grips very well on the tile surface that I am using it for. I cut the rug pad to fit the 2X8 rug and used the excess under a small area rug so there was no waste! Always pleased with my purchases at Overstock not only for the quality but the excellent prices.
I actually ordered this to cut into two pieces and it worked out great. I used most for a runner and the rest for an inside door mat. On the door mat I used some packing tape to secure the pad to the rug since it's a high traffic area, so that's the only other recommendation I would make when purchasing this item.
This is a must have for any rug to hold it in place.
