Great pad for your expensive tufted or hand knotted carpet. Will make it feel softer, thicker, and preserve its life. will not allow any slippage on your floor even without furniture on it. Highly recommend and the price is better than what you will pay at a carpet store for same. The precut on the 6 X 9 is about 3/4 to 1 inch less in measure than actual all the way around which is exactly what you want, no cutting required before laying.
