I have an 8 x 10 area rug over Pergo in my tv area and it constantly moves under the sectional, leaving it look misaligned with the Pergo board lines. Over the past year, we have had to realign the rug many times to prevent it from piling up against the tv stand.
This rug gripper a great aid in preventing that slippage going forward. Hopefully I won't be moving the furniture again soon to realign the area rug.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by UpgraderGirl Works great
Works great on regular stationary rugs. The dual side adhesive works well for the small rugs on top of laminate on my landings and is working for a rug on top of carpet beside my bed. My cats running up the stairs no longer slide around like Wile E. Coyote. However, due to dust and excess litter, it's not working well in my bathroom where the cat box is. I need to lift the rug frequently for cleaning and, since you can not reapply a strip once you remove it, obviously it won't work for rugs that need to be washed. Good product if you don't have kitty litter or similar dust problems. (Other pics on here demonstrate ease of application)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fxp1 Does the job
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.

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RJJ21 Keeps the rug in place
This product does exactly what it is designed to do. You cut multiple strips of the tape and lay it down on the floor where the carpet will be placed. Then you remove the protective blue plastic to expose the other sticky side and place the carpet down on top of it. The product is not super sticky so the carpet will come back up unharmed if you need to move it. It is also not sticky enough to hold down rolled up edges so ensure you carpet is flat before you start the process. Using the multiple strips as directed my carpet does not slide on the tile floor which is wonderful. The tape is a woven type material that is white in color.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Diannajh Yeah, i was looking for this!!
I had a product similar to this years ago, but had trouble finding it again, and yeah, here it is again!! I wanted it because I like to stick down the corners of my large rugs. When you buy those rug grippers that are to size, they cover the whole area except for the edges, well, what always comes up?? Anyway, I use this to put the gripper exactly where I need it. Economical too, because you may not need a full rug gripper like me, my couch sits on one edge, this holds the other edges. I am very pleased with this product.
