Just the thing for keeping our rugs in place on our newly refinished hardwood floors. This pad has just enough cushioning to add comfort and protection to the rugs without any real bulk underneath. These pads really help protect the rugs and the floor. The only thing that breaks the rugs loose is the frequent cat and dog races through the house. We bought the 9X12 size and cut it into several smaller pads for our rugs. These new pads replaced several older, thinner pads. By the way, when the pads do lose their stickiness (and they do with time) a quick wash in the washing machine (gentle or delicate cycle) makes them oh so sticky again. A great product.
