It has two sticky sides? Will this damage my laminated floor? Do we peel plastic off both sides?

I can't imagine putting the sticky side down on my new wood floor. Item # RGC58 is what we purchased..
Asked by: Lizzy
this is to be used carpet on carpet. Plastic has to be pulled from both sides for decorative carpet to be placed over the carpet gripper

When a decorative area rug is attached to carpeting via this gripper, I'm asking, when the area rug is removed, will the carpeting beneath it be damaged?
Asked by: Nanaof3boys
Dear customer, it should not damage the carpet underneath. Check the carpeting underneath regularly. Move the rug and vacuum carpet underneath regularly. Do not place the rug gripper on carpeting which has just been treated for cleaning. If further assistance is needed please contact our Technical Support Department at 877-630-1800.

Carpet 5 ft. x 7 ft. Non-Slip Safety Rug to Carpet Gripper Pad is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 95.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works - If Installed Right I can't be sure, but it's possible some people are not removing the thin plastic film on one side of this product. There are no instructions that come with it, and it does not look like it is supposed to be removed, but it is. I cut out the section I needed for an area rug I have sitting on carpet near the garage door. On one side of the product is a sticky material, on the other is a thin plastic film. If you leave it at that, no, this product will never work for you as the film side is not sticky and the rug will move all over the place. However, if you look closely you will see that the thin film has a "pull" tab (a few inches wide) that runs along the edge of one side, like the film and pull tab on single-serving processed cheese slices. If you pull on that tab, it will peel the thin film off the other side, now making both sides "sticky." I laid the area rug down on my carpet, and it hasn't moved since despite all the traffic coming in and out of the garage door.

We got this to keep our new area rug in place over the carpet because it would constantly move. All I'm gonna say is we don't have to "CONSTANTLY" adjust all day like before, but it still moves a few times a day, not on carpet side but area rug underside.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great solution to a nagging problem I have a retail business and commercial carpet. I keep an area rug in the entry area. It's been a constant problem keeping the carpet straight and wrinkle-free until now. I bought two 5'x8' pads for use with an 8'x10' carpet. Problem solved! The area rug lies flat and doesn't move around. The package contains no instructions. Briefly, I unpackaged and laid the pad(s) down on my carpet, sticky side down. Then I peeled off the thin plastic coating. I rolled the area rug onto the pad, squared it up, and then ran the sweeper to flatten the area rug out. The pad is smaller than 5'x8' in order to leave a border around the area rug. The pad and the area rug can be carefully moved to place it correctly. Do not attempt to walk on the pad!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works fine if you know how to use it ! Thanks to the reviewers that explained how the thin layer of film had to be peeled off. Its not obvious at all. I peeled off the film and stuck that side to the rug. That was the magic trick. Strange that the manufacturer does not provide this critical piece of information or any installation instruction that changes the product from completely useless to useful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works really well on some rugs Who wants to replace carpet for an entire room or house just to cover the most-used areas when you can install rugs over carpet? I installed this underneath a rug runner over carpet in my living room a couple of years ago. I am thrilled that the runner has not budged one inch since I applied it. Vacuuming and even cleaning it with a carpet machine does not move it at all. However, I have to say that iit did not work well with some other rugs I had. It seems that the material used in the backing of the rug has a lot to do with how this product sticks. I just installed a new one for the rug runner in my hallway (like five minutes ago). It is sticking very well and I am hopeful I will have the same results as I did in the living room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I have a 5 x 8 area rug placed on carpet floor in my living room. I have put my coffee table on top of the area rug. Before using the gripper pad my area rug was moving and bending near the coffee table legs whenever me and my husband sat or walked on the area rug. This gripper pad worked perfectly and keeps my area rug in place. My area rug has no creases now. :)) The better way to use it is to stick the gripper to the carpet floor first and then place area rug on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rug stays put! I was sure this wasn't going to work, but I was desperate. The nap on my new carpeting was sending my area rug creeping to the North every time it was walked on. The only way to keep it in place was to weigh it down with furniture, but it still puddled around my coffee table in ripples. Since it was the carpeting that caused this I didn't think anything I applied to the rug would have any effect, but this pad works! It's tacky on both sides, so it grips both surfaces and they remain in place relative to each other. My rug is flat now! I downgraded this pad a bit for ease of installation for two reasons: 1) The way it is packaged made it a bit difficult to unstick it from itself when opening it out flat. It would be easier in the smaller sizes, but the 5x8 size was somewhat hard to manage. 2) My 5x8 rug was difficult to position once the pad was on the back of it. However, I was doing this by myself. With two people placing the rug it would be no problem at all. I highly recommend this rug-to-carpet pad. It accomplished something I thought was impossible, short of nailing my rug to the floor!
