To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The product advises the following, "Newly refinished hardwood flooring should be allowed to cure for 2-4 weeks minimum period prior to placing the rug pad upon the wood flooring." We did not purchase these rug pads until 9 weeks after the floor was installed. After being TWICE as long as indicated by the manufacturer, the pads have left small circles the size of the individual miniature squares in the rug pad on the wood floor. They will not come up or rub off. They have ruined this floor. Do not recommend this product for any wood floors.
I ended up having to replace this pad with a competitor's immediately. I was using this as a pad under a rug that gets a lot of motion (under a desk chair). It was constantly slipping around, it just doesn't adhere in any way. It's very thick and soft, but unfortunately didn't do the job at all. Bummed I can't return, will have to find another use for this pad that isn't under a rug.
I liked the ease of cutting and installing this pad. I actually use it to keep drawer organizers full of heavy serving utensils and flatware from sliding back and forth when the drawer is opened and closed. Nothing else I have employed has worked as well as this pad. The only question I have remaining is the longevity of the material. The pad is composed of something completely different from the other pads I have used. Time will tell but I'm very pleased with this purchase.
THE PAD WAS FINE , BUT I SENT IT BACK BECAUSE IT WAS THE WRONG SIZE. HAVE RETURNED THIS 4 WEEKS AGO AND ALL THE SELLER SAYS IT'S IN TRANSIT. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET A REFUND BACK??? WHAT DOES IT MEAN "IT'S IN TRANSIT" ? I GUESS IT'S COMING FROM CHINA LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE DOES. I WISH THAT ALL PRODUCTS WOULD SAY WERE THEY ARE ORIGINALLY MADE, SO WE HAVE A CHOICE ON WHERE THE ITEM IS MADE?
I was kind of expecting something like I've picked up before at a big box store, but I love this rug pad. It was super simple to put down (no cutting if you order the right size), my slippery rug hasn't dared move a thread since I put it in, and it has made my rug feel softer to walk across without adding bulk. I'm really impressed.
I actually bought this product to keep my under-desk elliptical trainer in place while I use it, and it works! I tried using my elliptical on a bathroom rug with a rubberized back, but although the rug stayed in place while I used my elliptical on top of it, the elliptical itself kept moving forward on top of the rug. I had to pull it back into place, literally, about every 3 minutes. This non-slip rug is sturdy enough not to tear apart while I use my elliptical on top of it, and it keeps my elliptical almost stationery while I use it.
It unrolled and laid flat quickly and easily. Sometimes edges not covered by this pad can be slippery and the pad becomes a tripping point. I don’t see it As worthy of removing a star, it otherwise grips well and that risk is inherit with any rug on slippery surface. This helps, good product and value.
After eight months of use, the super-grip is not so super grip. In reality, it doesn't grip at all. The rug slides all over the place. I give it two stars primarily because of the size of the product. I did not need that big of a piece so I cut what I needed and I have plenty left over to cut a new piece.
I had a really cute rug that I had in front of my sink that was becoming a pain moving around everywhere. I ordered this, and cut it down a bit to size, and it holds it in place great. I also added rug tape, so the combo is perfect. Without rug tape it would have also worked well, but I have a Rumba that runs daily over it, so I just wanted to make sure the rug would stay nice and tight in place. It also adds a small, nice amount of cushion.
