I had given up on non-slip rug pads because they never worked. I had also tried many strange "solutions" from catalogs, etc., just trying to get my entryway rug to stay put, but my rug was never in place for more than a few minutes. Frustrating! Based on the reviews I decided to give this rug pad a try, and I am so glad I did. This rug pad is actually non-slip. As a matter of fact, my dogs can run and chase each other across the space now and the rug doesn't move an inch! I haven't had to adjust it once in a month! A thing of beauty. The pad comes slightly larger than the dimensions given, but this is a great thing, as you can trim it to fit your rug and it won't be too small. It is very easy to trim to size. I am really pleased with this purchase.

I bought a devi jute rug and this pad to go underneath it. What I didn't expect was that the pad had magical powers that turned my rug into a non-flying carpet. That is, where the rug slid around on the floor a bit, flying out from underfoot, now it stays put like it's been nailed down! MAGICAL!

I have couple of rugs that is only just few years old that start slipping. the whole day I put the rugs in place and it would not stay there. also my kids always running around playing, dancing, all sort of things that it starts dangerous to use the rugs. since I can not handle cold I have rugs all around the house. I started to search for new rugs and the price was beyond our budget. then I found about the rug pad and it was a real blessing. This rug pad comes in good quality and it has enough grip to keep the rug in place. Now I am really at peace because the rug no more moves around. (my daughter mainly runs and dances than walking so its a great relief now). an excellent product with very good price.

Pad is exactly as advertised. FYI: being that it is synthetic, there is a slight "chemical" smell to it when you take it out of the package. I hung it outside on the clothes line for a few hours to "freshen it up." Smell gone, easy to cut to size (we used it on a 5'x7' rug), and we're done! Being an Overstock customer for a number of years, I have been very pleased (and fortunate) with items I've purchased.
On the website, the photo suggests this pad is solid with some degree of thickness. It's not. Rather, the pad is paper thin; it folds and bunches up easily, making it difficult to get the rug to lie flat. There are several other pads sold on Overstock.com that are similarly priced and much superior. Avoid this one.
