This is a basic rug non-slip pad that does what it claims. I was a bit surprised by the odor when I first opened the package- it is a bit strong. If you are chemically sensitive, it may be best to let this offgas outside for an hour or two before using it.
I have been struggling with rug slippage in my kitchen (linoleum) and living room (hardwood), drives me nuts when my dog runs in and the carpet goes flying. This non-slip rug pad is not only secure keeping the rug in place but it is also cushy. I have had other pads that didnt hold tight and still slide, the grip on this one is fantastic. Holds the rug and the floor nicely. The only complaint I have, it has an odor to it when you first open it-I have a sensitivity to certain smells and this one I personally had to open and let air out outside. Otherwise, great non-slip pad and there is no more sliding around on carpets in my home!
While these aren't thick, they serve their purpose. I purchased three large pads and cut a couple to fit smaller rugs. The rubber material makes them great for outdoor use. I've read a few complaints about the pad not fitting well under large rugs but I've had no problems. A method that helps set a large rug onto a thinner pad is to roll it up on both sides into the middle, place the rug over the pad, then roll each side outward. This prevents the rug from shifting the pad during unrolling. Very happy with this purchase.
