Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Casey The carpet pad works great.
We have an area rug over a relatively slippery carpet, and the rug would slide and bunch up constantly. Although the pad was a bit difficult to open out of the box and get onto the rug, once it was on it has functioned very, very well.
Some reviewers said one person can complete the job. For an 8 X 10, we found 2 people were needed. One reviewer also said there were two adhesive sides. And that made me a bit skeptical. But there's only one adhesive side (which goes against the back ot the rug) and the other side I would describe as more slip resistant than adhesive.
Overall we are very, very pleased.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joseph This product solved our rug problem.
Our 8x10 rug has been in use for over a year and the edges were noticeably curved. This rug was on top of the carpeting. We opened up the pad and removed the plastic sheeting on the back side, best done by two people. No instructions with pad. First we flipped the carpet over and put the pad on the back of the carpet. When we laid the carpet over, the pad came off. Next we put the pad down and rolled the carpet over the pad. Both sides slightly sticky and this seem to work best. We pulled on the edges until they were straight or almost. Happy with the results. Vacuuming helps.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SJMilw What we were looking for
All in all this was a quick fix for our problem of the rug moving and lumping on the carpet. It's a bit awkward to install on a 8 x 10 rug and a second set of hands was a big help. We do have a cocktail table located on top of the rug and there is minor gathering at the table, but all in all, we're 95% happy with this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RoseLady product does not function like description says
I've had the carpet pad for several months now. I keep waiting for it to keep the carpet in place but it is only a dream. Pad is sticky but does not stick to the carpet or the rug so I have ripples and have to keep straightening the rug and pad.

This was being used to secure rugs over wall to wall carpet for my Mother (age 84) in her new apartment. Important to minimize tripping risks. After 30 days, the adhesive backing seems to be holding steady in both living room and bedroom where there are especially thick oriental rugs. Very pleased.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mitch Works - does what it is supposed to.
It is designed to keep a carpet in place on another carpet and it does that. Some instructions and/or tips for installing it would be very helpful.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by clevergrandma71 Disappointed in the performance of this product.
I'm disappointed in the performance of thiis product. It does hold most of the rug from sliding around but it still bunches up & I'm continually trying to get the rug to stay in place.
