Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Medusa Hardly works at all!
Purchased this product for a 21' hallway runner to stop the runner from migrating sideways up the wall. Cut the product into two pieces and placed under the runner. Now BOTH migrate! The creeping has slowed somewhat. Now we have to re-place BOTH items about 2X a week instead of 3X. Also cut pieces for two small (2'x3') rugs in front of our recliner chairs. The little rugs also continue to creep. The pad creeps with the rugs. I've tried flipping the pad material over, but it was worse.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Housebeautifier Excellent Solution to My Problem
I recently purchased a late-Victorian house which I'm overhauling. I elected to keep the existing carpet for the time being, but lo and behold, my small Persian rugs & cowhide rugs were "creeping". I purchased the double sided carpet anti slip pad and set to work. I think this will work very well to solve the creeping problem. As I have unusual shapes to cut out, my project may be more difficult than what you will undertake, but my recommendations are the same in either case. I would recommend marking very carefully and then cutting well inside the line. Also, if you have a light colored rug or hide, don't mark too closely, as you will mark your rug or hide with interesting colors. The cutting is a bit strenuous & you will have to frequently clear the scissors of the fibers from the felted side which will accumulate between your blades. It also seems as if the pad has a sort of "grain", as some directions are easier to cut than others. If you have unusual shapes you may also have to do a bit more trimming at the very end. This 75 ft. roll was enough for one medium and one small cowhide rug as well as one small Persian rug. There will be left over scrap that I may use for something else (we shall see). All in all, I do recommend this product.

I really liked this non-slip rug pad. We did not end up keeping the rug; but the pad is terrific.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TomO Works Well - Watch Instructions for Border!
Product is high quality - price is reasonable, some flooring stores sell similar product for 10% more.
This didn't get a 5 star because the (minimal) instructions were unclear until after we trimmed the pad. It mentioned for larger rug leave a 2" border around the rug edge, which my wife read to mean 2" on all sides. Well, they then give an example and mean a 1" border, two inches total trimmed from length and width. The rug doesn't slip or roll at the edge yet but we haven't had it down long enough.

We stacked two rugs for various reasons in my daughter's room, and the one on top kept buckling. I ordered this pad to see if it would help te top rug lay flat and it works!!! We cut the excess with no problem and couldn't be happier!

The felt side makes it very difficult to get the carpet positioned properly, but once that is done it's not going anywhere! I put it under an antique Persian rug, mostly to protect the knotting on the back as the rug is so heavy it doesn't slide, even on hardwood.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HomeDepotFan Great product
We needed anti-skid mats for several rugs due to having wood floor at one location and sheet vinyl at another. Rugs with no backing were extremely slippery and dangerous. Rugs with an integral non-skid backing deteriorated in the laundry so we are now only buying rugs without backing. I was concerned that the anti-skid mat would get gummy and stick to our wood or vinyl floor or leave marks as reported for some competing products. However, it has been a month or two since we installed this product, and so far there is absolutely no sign of gumminess, deterioration, or marking of the floor. With this mat I can't slip even when I try.

Exactly what we needed: well-made, easy to trim-to-fit, keeps rugs from moving, no marks transferred to wood floor, and thin enough that it doesn't raise the rugs too high. Highly recommend.
