I bought a beautiful 20' wool runner rug from overstock for my hallway, only to find with my four dogs it was no way going to stay put. I purchased this felted rug pad, and viola! not only does it give the rug a more plush feel, but my dogs now go tearing down the hall and it doesn't even budge.

I wish they sold padding to match the width of the runner purchased because this padding is so good, you can tell where there's no padding under the rug. But the actual padding is tremendous. I had to clip the end since it was slightly longer than 20 feet.
We have a long rug (2' x 18') that migrated all over the hallway. I used to adjust it every morning back into place, but then as soon as the dog came running through it was pointless. This rug pad keeps the rug in its proper place. Very little sliding on our hardwood floors. I adjust it maybe once or twice a month. It also gives the rug more padding, which makes it more comfortable to walk on. Definitely a worthwhile investment. We had no trouble cutting it down to the right size.
I purchase this for under a long hallway runner which was placed on a wood floor. This is a very high-traffic area and I was fearing I'd be adjusting our new runner constantly. In about a year, I've had to adjust it only about an inch to one side, which amazes me. It makes our runner feel cushy and wonderful under our bare feet, but more importantly, like I said, the rug has STAYED PUT!
This rug pad made a HUGE difference. It really keeps the rugs in place better than the thinner ones do, & it makes the rugs so much more comfortable. I didn't know that would make such a difference to me since some of my rugs are in hallways where comfort isn't a big deal. Turns out, I like comfort everywhere! I had ordered several runners of different lengths, so for the padding I ordered two 20' runners & cut them into the 4 sections I needed. Get this rug pad & see the difference.
I have this same pad under a large area rug and it works great and is very nice. The runner version I bought doesn't hold the rug enough for the thin long length. I will adapt by using double sided carpet tape at intervals and taping the runner to this pad. So it works for me.
