Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NordicGirl DISGUSTING ODOR
I returned this rug pad less than 24 hours after I opened the package and put it out on my patio. It smelled so bad that I had to close all of my doors and windows on that side of my condo to keep the smell from coming inside. It smelled so bad that you could even smell it from my downstairs neighbor's patio. I thought the odor might dissipate overnight once it was out of the package and had time to "breathe", but the next morning when I opened my door, that horrible odor still filled the entire patio area and came wafting inside.The inside of my car still stunk when I got back in it after returning the pad to my local Home Depot.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ali Great product, but smells awful
The smell of glue permeates off of this product to no end. Great product, does what it is supposed to do. Just stinks. Definitely an outdoor product only.

I had to put it outside because it had such a strong burnt rubber smell I couldn't leave it temporarily inside.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Snail This rug pad is rugged!
This is a sturdy gripper pad. I placed it under an indoor/outdoor rug that is on a fiberglass type floor. Only drawback is that it had a very strong odor when first taken out of the package!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by peteNW Not worth the price
Bought this because others said the the inexpensive rug I bought for my patio was not thick enough to go without it . That wasn't true and the only advantage I see is that the pad will keep the rug up enough to allow some air and drainage below it. Its basically just a plastic lattice work and when new gave off a very unpleasant odor. The gripper is very flimsy and not thick enough to lie flat because of the way it was folded up for packaging.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HDpatron Terrible odor
This rug pad has an unbelievably offensive odor. I could smell it through the FedEx package before I even opened the inner packaging. It was so awful I took it outside to air out (the odor lingered in my house even after the pad was taken outside). After a week outside it still smelled as bad as the first day. I ended up throwing it away.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BamaTaz Smell is strong but works in a garage
Like other reviews on this product the smell is strong. I unwrapped and spread out on my deck to let it air out before putting in my garage under an indoor/outdoor rug. Would not recommend using in a closed in area.
