Sticking very well
I washed 3 of my matching rugs and 2 nearly lost all of the latex backing. After tearing everything off and drying them I searched for a backing to be able to continue to use them. (There is a large 6 x 8 under my kitchen table! I am thrifty and don't want replace everything!). I was hesitant due to the reviews here about the tape. I went to Home Depot to physically examine the tape. I selected two boxes for 4 x 6 rugs and made sure the adhesive seemed to cover edge to edge on the two rolls. I cut to fit for both a runner and a 2 x 3 using all the tape. The rugs are down now and seem to be holding. I am sure as we stand on them the tape will be pressed in more securely. I think it was well worth the 10 dollars plus a roll. The small rug alone cost more than that! I hope to get another year out of my matching rugs!

    Buy 2 rolls!
    1 roll will not cover the 4x6 rug. This is all that it covers buy following the directions on the roll

      useless in every way
      First, half of the "sticky" side had no adhesive on the back at all! Only one edge of my roll had an adhesive, sometimes 1/2 the width, at some places only 1/3 of the width, and it was very weak. What did stick to my rug was no help whatsoever in keeping it from sliding around the hardwood floor. Completely useless product.

        Not long enough for the size rug stated
        Package states 25' roll for rug up to 4'x6'. But instrux call for space between strips no greater than 3" and show layout that would take ~43' for rug that size. It took 1/2 hr to explain to mfgr's customer service, but they're sending me another roll.

          Our application for this was to create traction on some slippery, carpeted stairs going down into our garage. I wasn’t sure it would work/stick but it is exactly what I needed. We have strips of this this adhered to low pile carpet on each step and the grip side is exposed, facing up. It’s been there for a couple of weeks and is definitely not budging. It gives a great grip for our bare and socked feet and no one has slipped down the stairs since.

          Very good product, it holds well to the rug and keeps the rug in place under normal traffic. It works best when you cover the entire underneath of the rug with the tape.

          used on hardwood floor instead of on rug
          I use this as non-slip strips taped to the floor near the bed and the tub for my wife who needs good traction stepping into and out a wheelchair. Works great used like this.

            While it is initially a little hard to peel the adhesive backing, once you get it started it comes right off. This stuff is great. Before I put it on my rugs in my hardwood floor entry. In the past, whenever my dog would go nuts after seeing a cat out the window the rugs would be thrown all over the floor and pushed into a pile. Now, they don't even move.

            This traction 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 that most foot traffic flow - Bailey Customer Care QEP

              Don’t Bother
              Bought this tape once about ten years ago to keep stair step pads from sliding - it was terrible. Bought it again recently as it seemed that the design was changed. Tried it to keep two rugs from sliding around on a linoleum floor - still terrible. I even tried applying it to the rug and the floor to see if the “grippy” side would grip itself - nope. My wife almost broke her neck when one of the rugs slid out when she stepped on it. Avoid this stuff.
