This rug pad fits securely underneath the small rug in my half bath and holds my hand-hooked rug (also an overstock bargain) in place, no matter what. I have literally held the rug and pad in my hand and tried to move them together and cannot. Over the years, I've been lax about purchasing pads to go under the rugs I've purchaed, but as I'm getting a little older, I see the wisdom in putting a pad under each and every rug in my home, no matter how small, to keep my family and dogs from falling on a sliding rug. It just makes good sense. This pad also was about 30% less expensive than I could find locally or even in my ***** catalogue. I would encourage anyone who wants to secure their rugs to purchase this pad.
