I was concerned the runner size pad would slip given the smaller size and weight of a wool runner. So far it has stayed put. I have it in a high traffic hallway where the traditional thin rubber mats have let the carpet slide around. This pad gives a noticeable amount of cushion as well, despite its thinness. The felt side is quite rough, which allows it to grip the underside of the rug, and keep it in place. I have also had this pad in a 9 x 12 size for over a year, and love it.
It's not as thick as I thought it would be, but that's actually better for it fits under the rug quite comfortably. I had a little trouble cutting it to size, but you get that with any rug pad. The quality is good, and it the rubber side has excellent traction. A good buy for any area rug.
I had purchased this rug pad for my hallway runners, after having already used this same pad in a larger size in my den. While I LOVE my den rug pad, I find these rug pads do NOT work as well. I guess because of the smaller size? I am constantly having to re-position my hall rugs as they move TONS- whereas I never have to move my den rug. Would not recommend this size to anyone, but absolutely recommend the larger sizes.
I ordered a living room rug and runner from Overstock about 6 months before ordering the rug pad. The living room rug is held in place by furniture. Having two kittens, the runner was constantly crumpled up, pushed into the next room, etc. After reading reviews, I decided to purchase the rug pad. It was a little longer than my runner so it did need to be trimmed with scissors. The problem... the pad stays in place but the rug doesn't stay on the pad. I'm still going to need double sided tape to keep it in place. Not really worth the money unless you're just looking to make the carpet feel thicker.
This is my 3rd order for these rug pads from Overstock.com. I ordered them in various sizes for use throughout the house, and I'm totally satisfied with each and everyone. They work equaly well on hard wood floors, slate floors, or carpeting. As a matter of fact, my daughter will order them too for her new home. It is THE BEST product available on carpeting; rugs just will not "buckle" anymore. PRICE IS RIGHT, TOO :-)
Fantastic! This carpet not only keeps your carpet in place, but it makes your carpet feel wonderful when walked on. It arrived right to my door, so it was easy to unwrap and lay down. If you are going to spend the money on a new or old area rug, buy this pad and you will be amazed at the difference it makes with your carpet.Also the paper says this adds mileage to your carpet so it will last much longer.
this pad does a better job than one i had previously but it still moves around and i end up having to reposition the rug every few days. it's very cushy and feels good to walk on so if you have a rug in a non-heavy traffic area - this would be perfect.
Makes my cushy wool hall runner a little cushier, and mostly prevents slippage--at least, the worst, while-you're-walking-on-it kind. I have noticed the rug does move a little over time, but this product does not claim to be a true non-slip pad, from what I can tell, so I am okay with that.
This pad is excellent. It is under our hallway rug and has kept the rug in place. It has also stayed directly under the rug so hasn't crept out to the sides or ends. It has added a softness underfoot so is also comfortable to walk on. It's the best hallway runner pad we've ever had.
