4 x 6 Rug Pads

Most 4x6 rugs require pads with some grip to keep them in place. But, depending on the type and weight of your 4x6 and where you place it, you may also want a bit of cushion. The best rug pad choices for 4x6 rugs run the gamut from lowest profile and greatest grip to pads that combine grip with varying degrees of cushion.

If you’re rug is relatively lightweight and placed in a high traffic area, you’ll want a pad with strong grip. For a 4x6 rug placed anywhere that door clearance is an issue or where it needs to lie flat and perfectly flush with the floor, we suggest Rug Pro, the lowest-profile solid design rubber and felt pad.

Nature’s Grip is another great, low-profile choice for 4x6 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 4x6 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.

If you’d like a bit of subtle cushion under your 4x6 rug, 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 4x6 rugs in place, lying flat. But it’s 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.

For more cushion under your 4x6 rug, consider Contour Lock. This 1/8 inch-thick felt and rubber pad offers a strong grip and moderate levels of cushioning without bulking. Rugs often tend to have rough backings, so this pad’s slightly thicker solid design not only helps keeps rugs clean, but fully protects floors from scratches. This pad offers a great overall value for reliable grip and subtle cushioning.

Customer Questions & Answers

  • I have a rug in a high-traffic area over wall-to-wall carpeting. The rug moves as the day wears on and I would like a pad that will stop this. What do you suggest? Size of pad should be about 48 x 72 inches

    The only pad we know that works is our Superior Lock 7/16". Wall-to-wall carpeting can be tough so that thickness is necessary. Rubber side up felt side down.

  • If an all felt pad doesn't work too well in high-traffic areas what do you suggest for 4x6 and 3x3 area rugs? The pads must be non-toxic.

    I suggest looking at our Contour Lock felt and natural rubber pad or our Anchor Grip pad which is a soybean oil-based polymer blend. Both these non-toxic pads have exceptional non-slip traction that stops rugs from slipping and sliding even in high-traffic areas.

  • How thick should a rug pad be for a 4'x 6' thin silk rug?

    The pad should really be no thicker than 1/4".

  • What type of pad is most appropriate for a handmade needlepoint rug? It's 4' x 6' and will be going on a hardwood floor.

    Take a look at our Superior Lock 1/4" pad. It's made of recycled felt and natural rubber and will stop your rug from sliding and moving, while also providing plenty of cushioning for a plush feel.

  • I need a pad and am looking at Super Lock Natural and Anchor Grip, but I don't want anything too thick. My main concern is to get something that adheres to the rug. Previously, I’ve had rugs slip off pads and don’t want it to happen again.

    I recommend Anchor Grip. This low-profile pad will hold tight to both your floor and your rug, keeping it locked in place.
