This is a great rug pad. It's thick, has great cushion and spring and stays put on the floor because of the rubber backing. Seems to hold a 5 x 7 rug in place as well. I'd recommend it. I also ordered Overstock's "Ultra Premium Felted Reversible Dual Surface Non-Slip Rug Pad" - which I didn't like it nearly as much as I liked this one (because it's thinner and has less cushion).
I bought a beautiful rug in a Consignment Shop but it needed a little lift to make it perfect.... this product did the trick! Feels great under the feet...gives much more cushion than the regular flat pad.. plans to get another one in a larger size for the next rug purchase soon. Great product.
I recently purchased a natural fiber rug and was debating whether or not to also purchase this rug pad. Honestly, I was being cheap and trying to save a buck or two. But I decided to get it and if I found it useless I would quickly return it. Long story short, my rug feels so much better to walk on with the rug pad. And it doesn't slide across my hardwood floor like it was doing when I laid the rug without a rug pad. So glad I went on and opted for this great rug pad!
I bought an 8x10 rug on overstock and knew if would need a rug pad to keep it in place. From the reviews, this seemed like a great rug pad. So I chose this one. I was worried that the slight rubber grip on one side would do some damage to my hardwoods. It's been over 6 months now and everything seems fine. The rug pad works perfectly. Also, this gives just enough padding to make a rug seem like even better quality than it is. It's now my favorite rug pad, so I ordered the 5x8 for another room. Now I'm back on this site because I need to order a 3X5 rug pad for my hallway. It's gotten to the point where I'm annoyed by any other rug pad except this one.
