Like most other individuals, small area rugs have a tendency to slide around the floor. There are various solutions on the market to prevent rugs from slipping, all with their own strengths and weaknesses. The overall weakness of most of these products is either the gripping power just isn't there, or when dirt and dust accumulates, it weakens the gripping power.
I had an opportunity to try out this product on two kitchen rugs.
Following the simple directions, I laid down the strips, and positioned the rugs.
Overall, I'd have to say these strips actually held the rugs in place. Only time will tell if they remain in their place.
One thing I noticed when placing the strips down is it was rather difficult removing the blue plastic film from the topside of each strip. The strip sticks to the floor, and the blue film sticks to the strip so it wasn't the easiest removing this film, but overall, I am pleased with the overall results this product offers.

I've had a problem with my smaller rugs slipping so decided to try Roberts Rug Gripper Anti-Slip Tape. For me, the tape did the job and now we'll have to see how it holds over time. Its two-sided sticky tape with a thin backing layer of poly film that first must be removed by pulling it off. The tape is an open web design that's laid in rows on the bottom of the rug. In using the tape for the first time its important to clean the bottom of the rug of dust and lint. Trying to tape over this stuff will not make for a good bond. Also, clean and dry the floor under the rug is also a good idea. Once down it sticks to both the floor and rug, holds the rug firm. I found if you have to lift it tip up one side of the rug and make sure the strips are still holding onto the rug and not the floor then pull up slowly to re-position the rug. Leaving the tape strips on the floor means you can't clean that area of the floor. Its really a snap.

We originally bought rubber carpet holders for hardwood floors but they did not hold the carpets down even from the beginning and when the rubber got dirty forget about it. We bought a roll of these to try out. It is a little difficult to get the white backing to start peeling off but once you get a corner up it's no problem. We have them on 3 carpets and they all stay in place, even with a cat that likes to use them as a runway. I would definately recommend this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve1234 It holds for me...
I had problems with rubber grippers. Even with these rubber grippers the rug would slowly move around within a week and then I had to reposition the rug again and again and again...
Anyway, (frustrated) I bought the “Roberts Rug Gripper” and install it in strips on my ceramic flooring for my 5’x 4’ rug. A week later it hasn’t move at all. Finally, I don’t have to chase the darn rug around the house anymore.
PS: You don’t install this on the rug, you instead install it on the flooring and then lay the rug on it and press down a bit. And there you go!

This is great tape. I used it on an 8 foot carpet runner on a wood floor. Works perfect and stays put even when you vacuum the rug. Recommend.

I purchased this product before and it didn't work because I listened to the clerk in the store and did not follow the product instructions. This time the instructions changed, requiring more tape, but I really want to keep the area rug from shifting. It requires that you put the strips of tape fairly close together to keep the rug from slipping. I worked pretty well for about 2 weeks, and slippage isn't as bad as before the re- application, but I do have to readjust the rug daily.

This worked well to keep my double faced cotton bath rugs in place. I don't like rugs with an attached rubber backing but, for safety purposes this rug tape is fine. You don't have to cover the entire rug, I just do the corners and a small piece on each side. No slipping, I remove and replace after washing the scatter rugs.
