I am not a happy customer. I bought this tape to stick my rug to carpet. It was fine until I had to take the rug off the carpet. It has been very difficult experience trying to get the tape residue off my carpet and I have already tried to clean it twice with no success. I tried white vinegar with dish soap and second time I tried rubbing alcohol. Now Its a sticky mess and I have to cover the area up with newspapers to keep ours and my 2 toddlers (3 and 1.5 year old), feet away from the sticky mess. Because if your feet touches the sticky residue , they become sticky too and very hard to wash.... I am going to home depot tomorrow to seek some advice and buy some goo gone. Not impressed at all. I thought it has been advertised as no residue carpet tape.... false advertising
I needed to secure in place the carpet in my living room as it's on hardwood and kept sliding around. The tape does a good job at securing it in place. I had to take off some of the tape on my 1st try as I screwed up the install and it was easy to remove without leaving any glue residue on the floor. I did find the product a bit pricey but you get a good amount. At the same time, how often do you use carpet tape?
I really like this tape. I have used a wide variety of carpet tapes in my job. I constantly need to use them keeping different carpets of all sorts on sets and there is a lot of turn over... this tape comes as a nice big roll and is easy to rip pieces off by hand. It is basically like double sided duct tape and there is little to no residue left behind upon removal which was the biggest seller for me. Highly recommend this tape.
This is great! Exactly what I needed. I have slipperly tile floors and a dog and cat that like to run around and wrinkle up the carpets. One two-inch long piece on each corner of the carpet is doing the trick! It says it doesn't leave residue behind when removing, but I did get the residue all over my scicors cutting it (so don't use fancy scisors). I'm very positive I could get any residue off with some nail polish remover when I need to (acetone).
Removes easily without leaving a residue but... Not nearly as strong as fibre tape (brown ace hardware or equivalent). I used Xfasten to attached speaker grill cloth to a wooden frame but it released within 15 minutes. I compared a section of Xfasten to the Fibre tape and the Fibre tape was much harder to remove. Also, Xfasten is just as difficult to cut (with scissors) as the blades will gum up quickly. This is an OK product overall if you are not after the strongest tape.
I used this RUG to CARPET tape to fasten a thin rug (which arrived with multiple, stubborn, folds in it) to a thicker, underpad purchased for underneath it. It wasn't easy but it did the trick! I've since bought another 2 rolls of it, as I have more rugs and underpadding to tape together. Excellent product which I've ONLY found on Amazon.ca!
Works great! So far so good. Only used for a few days but now my Roomba can actually go on my area rugs where it couldn’t before and would get stuck. The roll is massive. I could probably use it for all my rugs in my house honestly. So far just used on a jute area rug that I just purchased and the edges were quite lifted after unpackaging it but it’s helped heaps making it lay flat. Also used in bathroom rugs and so far so good!
I have a couple of 2x4 ft hooked rugs that my mother- in-law made. They have a backing similar to that anti-skid (and useless) backing you can buy for rugs, which really reduces the surface area that rug tape can stick to. Nothing would hold them in place until I bought this product. Now they don't move !
I purchased this item as I have several area rugs on carpet that move all the time and I wanted a two sided tape to keep them in place. The rug remained in place for less than a full day after using the tape. No residue to the carpet or rug on removal but the fact is, it doesn't work for its intended purpose. Don't waste you money
