3 x 5 Rug Pads

3x5 rugs and most smaller throw rugs and runners require rug pads with strong grip to keep them from slipping and sliding, particularly in high-traffic and high-use areas where smaller rugs are generally placed.For 3x5 rugs, grip is generally more important than cushion, though some non-slip rug pads also offer a bit of cushion. Look for pads with the lowest profile and the strongest grip.

For 3x5 rugs placed in front of doors, in hallways, or anywhere that door clearance is an issue, we suggest Rug Pro, the lowest-profile solid design rubber and felt pad, needle-punched using very small holes to allow rugs and floors to breathe by improving airflow.

Nature’s Grip is another great, low-profile choice for 3x5 rugs that need to lie completely flush with floors. This 100% eco-friendly pad weds hand-woven organic jute fibers with natural rubber to maximize your 3x5 rug’s stability, extend its life, and protect your flooring Naturally safer than plastic non-skid pads, Nature’s Grip naturally grips to floors rather than sticking to them.

For 3x5 rugs placed in front of sinks, next to beds, or anywhere you’d like a bit of subtle cushion under foot, consider Super Lock Natural. This classic waffle-style pad, made with over 1 pound of natural rubber per square yard, is still thin enough to keep 3x5 rugs in place, lying flat. But its waffle design offers a bit of cushion that won’t compress over time. Because it’s made with natural rubber, it will never outgas, stick to, stain, or strip floors the way that plastic pads made with synthetic adhesives can.

Customer Questions & Answers

  • I recently bought four Superior Lock pads for the oriental rugs on my hardwood floors. I now wish to buy rug pads for braided wool rugs in high traffic areas. Three of the rugs measure 3ft x 5ft. Will the same pad work well for these?

    Yes, it will. But something thinner may work better if you need clearance. You could look at RugPro or Contour Lock. Both are low-profile felt and natural rubber non-slip pads. RugPro is 1/16" thick and Contour Lock is 1/8" thick.

  • Which of your rug pads are recommended for 3x5 bath rugs? That is, they are okay in a wet environment and are good on a tile floor.

    I would recommend Anchor Grip since it is waterproof or you could look at Super Lock Natural which will work just as well. Both non-slip pads have a powerful grip that will stop your rugs from slipping on the tile floor.

  • My 3' 1/2" x 5' wool rug is at the bottom of my stairs on a marble floor. It has a cheap rug pad under it and is constantly sliding across the floor and off the pad. Plus, the pad bunches up. What kind of pad do you recommend for keeping it in place?

    I recommend Contour Lock, a low-profile non-slip pad made of felt and natural rubber. It is just 1/8" thick and will stop your rug from sliding and slipping off the pad. Contour Lock also prevents bunching and wrinkling.

  • What is the best pad for a 3'3" x 5'3" wool rug that is 1/2" thick and sits on a hardwood floor? Slipping is a concern.

    I would go with our Superior Lock 1/4" rug pad. It has a strong and reliable grip that prevents slipping and sliding.

  • What are advantages and disadvantages of Superior Lock 1/4 inch v. Comfortrip for smal lDhurrie style rugs (36 by 60 inches)?

    Our Superior-Lock is well-suited for your purposes.. It anchors your rug firmly to the floor while providing a thick layer of cushioned support . Our Comfort-Grip is for higher end rugs . They are both great pads and there is no real disadvantage to either unless you are trying to save mone. If that is the case, the Comfort-Grip pad is about $13.60 more than the Superior-Lock pad.
