This item arrived in a plastic package about 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 feet. when we took the plastic wrap off, we had to unfold the pad to its full dimensions, the only problem was that the pad did not lay completely flat due to the creases created by folding it for the delivery. It had wrinkles that would not come out. we let it lay there for one day, with no change in the wrinkle status, finally my wife took a steam iron and a wet cloth and carefully tried to remove the creases; it was very time consuming, but it worked. Having done that, we finally laid down the carpet down and it is OK now.Read More
The quality of the carpet pad materials appears to be good (better than I expected). However, the way it is package causes issues. The 9 x 12 pad we ordered was folded and folded/rolled to become a tight 18 in x 26 in package. This was then wrapped in plastic to keep from expandeding. Great for shipping, but caused the padding to stretch in spots. These stretched areas are now lumps even after laying the rug over it. Might be better if used under the heavyest of rugs. Manufacture needs to find better way to package and ship. Somewhat disappointed.Read More
I am not really a fan of this item. I wish I had just gotten regular carpet padding for the job. I wanted my overstock rug to be extra soft with a baby, but this pad does not do that. It's only real purpose seems to be non-skid. It does not make an inexpensive rug more plush or springy to the step, and that is what I wanted.Read More
We are restoring a 110 year old Victorian house to use for weddings and receptions and the rug we purchased from Overstock was beautiful but it needed a pad, so we ordered this one. It was so tightly compressed when it was folded up that some of the bulges did not want to come out and it made the rug bumpy for a week or so. It would be better if it could be shipped rolled and not folded up. It is fine now, but it was a little dangerous for a while because a person could trip on the bumps it made under the rug.Read More
I didn't realize how rough this rug pad would be. It is not soft in any way (however, it does go under a rug)! I had A LOT of trouble getting it trimmed to the appropriate size. You will need sharp scissors if you need to trim it. I would have rather had a pad that was easier to trim and that was softer. I feel like this one belongs on concrete. Also, it came folded. It was difficult to flatten it out in all places. Once in place, it does the job.Read More
Heavy, good quality. Would lay better if shipped rolled instead of folded. .Read More
Adds a lot of padding to the rug which makes it feel so much softer and nicer. Also keeps the rug from slipping on the wood floor. Happy we invested in this to go with new rug.Read More
