No, this is a "traction" tape designed to help resist movement of rugs over hard surfaces like finished wood flooring, tile and resilient flooring. You may want to consider using clamps to ensure safety during your project.

Answer

The tape becomes less effective each time the rug is removed from the flooring surface. The robovac should be able to roll atop of the rug. This tape is designed to keep small area rugs/mats from bunching up and moving across a hard surface more than they would without anti slip assistance. For best performance, Make sure the floor surface is thoroughly clean and the outline of the rug or mat is parallel to the direction high foot traffic flow.

It really doesn't seem to work with anything. I got it to hold a chair protector down on hardwood and it is a joke. Don't waste your money.

Works Well
Yes - this DOES work on carpet over carpet. Living in a carpeted rental apartment, I have a few oriental runners and small rugs to protect heavy traffic areas. Got tired of bending down to straighten them every couple of days as they'd slowly collide with and ride up adjacent walls. This tape seems to do the trick. I doesn't fasten the rug to the floor, it provides just enough traction to keep it from moving around much. The blue backing is easy to remove if you grab a corner of the tape and yank til it stretches and separates. I used a giant lint roller to clean bottom sections of the rug before applying the tape.

For everyone asking if this works on carpet, the answer is YES it does. I just moved to an apartment where I have more carpet than I have had in many many years. With one dog and two cats, I had to do something. I bought several washable throw rugs to put around and of course they were bunching up and were basically death traps. Yesterday I taped them down. I just taped down the perimeters, because I will pick them up and wash them once a month or two. I anticipate using fresh tape each time, which I don't think is a big deal. I tested what comes up with the tape, a little bit of fuzz from the carpet but not bad. Maybe my expectations were lower than the other bad reviews I read, they aren't pulled absolutely smooth, but they stay put and aren't bunching up. I put my yoga mat over the big one and did yoga this morning and the rug stayed put. I'm super pleased with this tape. I did a lot of research and am glad I picked this one.

Easy to use, effective and keeps me from going crazy everytime the carpet corner flips. A friend of mine recommended using painters tape under it when adhering to laminate to avoid leaving a sticky residue. Haven't removed it, but figured I'll share the tip.

Love this tape
I have stairway treads, hallway runner, Dinning room and living room rugs. I've tried everything with my dog who constantly moves my rugs by running. This product does the job well the rugs stay still and do not budge I would highly recommend this product. I would buy the bigger roll and make sure you use enough to keep the rugs in place.

First time user. Worked perfectly. Need to tape down rug pieces on 32 steps. Had them on 2 weeks now & working perfectly. Need a quick fix and this did it. Taped the rug pieces to a wood step, 32 of them to 2 floors. Exceeded our expectations.

Roberts Rug Gripper was used to keep vinyl floor mats from moving on a carpeted floor. The product helped but the mats still move around with normal foot traffic. The product does not keep the corners of the mats from curling up and creating a tripping hazard. One feature that I do not like is that the product is to be secured first to the floor and then the mat or rug is placed on top. This makes it difficult to position the tape properly. The tape was placed under one mat about one week ago as an experiment. As I said, the Rug Gripper helps somewhat to prevent the doormats from sliding around but this is not a long-term solution. Velcro hooks with an adhesive backing might work better but it doesn't come in the 2-1/2" width and is generally sold along with the loops (which wouldn't be needed for carpet.)

The packaging states that this tape can be used to secure carpets to other carpet. I attempted to use this tape to secure a runner carpet on top of a berber carpet. While the tape secured nicely to the berber, it will not adhere to the underside of the runner carpet. I give it a fair rating due to its inability to secure one carpet on top of another carpet. However, this product would probably work as advertised if securing carpet to a hard surface such as wood or tile. Be aware that removing the blue backing from the double-sided tape can be tedious. I used a dental pic to pull the tape fiber from the blue backing.

Great Stabilizer for Area Rug!
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.
