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.
This rug pad is great under the runner that I purchased. It is nice and thick and makes the runner on top of it feel luxurious under my feet. It also keeps the runner on top of it in place nicely. There is very little movement, even when my kids and my dog are running around and over it. I am very happy with this rug pad.
This is a great pad. Really holds my rug in place on the travertine. I only had to trim a few inches off of it to fit the rug; better too much than not enough! I have another rug on the same travertine without the pad (Overstock didn't have the size I needed and I had to order it elsewhere) and it slips all over the place. It was a good decision to order and I definitely recommend it.
good thickness to work with both woven and pile rugs. makes even thin/woven rugs easy to walk on. generous sizing but you will want to trim to your rug size anyway. good non-slippage on wood floor. no marking or staining of floor (have had over year).
I bought this pad because when I bought my runner from Overstock it also recommended using a non-skid pad. This pad had great reviews and it was in my budget. When it arrived I was very pleased. It really makes my new runner look and feel great. I really recommend this pad, especially if you have hard woods or laminates.
My wife and I were looking at economical rugs, but none of them had the padded feel that we wanted. We decided to get one of these pads for underneath to see how it worked. These pads are great! While they seem a little thin when you get it, we placed ours down on our hardwood floor, placed the rug over it, and were amazed at how much better the rug felt under our feet. We bought 2 for our runners, and they are just as good. We cannot recommend these enough. On a side note, shipping was lightning fast. We ordered on Monday evening, and it arrived at our door Thursday morning.
This is my first experience with this kind of pad, but I would purchase again. It's the first pad I have had that was very well made & most of all keeps the rug from moving on my hardwood floors. I have tried the thinner less heavy type & they still allow the runner to move all over the place. I purchased a couple of others for my other area rugs.
