I host open houses and vend shows atleast twice a month. I recent bought an area rug for the entrance to my booth but with all of the traffic in and out, it moved and the corners kept flipping up. I was afraid a customer was going to trip so I started researching options because I love my rug. Let me tell you, this rug pad is more than perfect! I have not seen the corners flip up once and my rug now stays where I put it. I had to trim it a little because my rug is not exactly 8'x11' but scissors cut through the pad easily. I read that this pad also works on carpet so I am curious to check that out since I have a show coming up at a local convention center that is carpeted.
