5 x 7 Rug Pads

What type of rug pad you’ll need for your 5x7 rug will depend a bit on its weight and thickness as well as where you’re placing it. For most 5x7 rugs, you’ll likely want some balance of grip and cushion. Look for pads that combine felt cushioning with natural rubber, the strongest gripping, longest lasting, safest and most eco-friendly material for keeping rugs lying flat and in place.

For thinner, lighter-weight rugs like flatweaves consider a strong-gripping pad like Rug Pro, a low-profile, high-performance pad that works particularly well in high traffic areas and wherever door clearance may be an issue and/or you’d like your rugs to lie flat and flush with the floor. This pad’s solid design offers more floor coverage than traditional waffle-style non-slip pad, keeping dirt from accumulating and reaching your floors and making vacuuming easier, effectively extending the life of your 5x7 rug by helping to keep it clean. 

If you’d like a bit of cushion under your 5x7 rugs but still need to keep a relatively low profile, 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.

For more cushion, particularly under rugs in living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms, there’s Superior Lock, combining the best of both grip and cushion. Made with more felt and a gentle heat-pressing technique, Superior Lock offers unyielding, non-slip traction with thick, cushioned support. It’s essentially a thick layer of felt combined with a thinner non-slip, natural rubber pad. The needle-punched felt surface naturally clings to the bottom of rugs to anchor it to its surface, giving your rugs the ‘hug’ they need while giving you extra softness and comfort in two thicknesses, 1/4 inch and 7/16 inch, the best choice for maximum comfort under 5x7 rugs.

Customer Questions & Answers

  • I'm trying to decide between Superior Lock and your memory foam pad for my 5' x 7' rug. I want comfort, but I'm also concerned about the rug sliding around. Currently, I have furniture holding down the edges.

    I would say the strong grip and cushioned comfort of Superior Lock is what you need. Your rug will definitely stay in place with this pad. The Cloud Comfort pad is really for larger area rugs and yours is on the smaller side so there might be some issues with sliding.

  • I have a 5x7 Dhurrie rug on top of a flat weave wall-to-wall carpeting. Do you have a pad that will keep it from moving around and bunching up?

    Our Superior-Lock is well-suited for your purposes. It anchors the rug firmly to the floor while providing a thick layer of cushioned support. This pad is manufactured in the USA, is eco-friendly, odor-free and designed to prevent bunching, creeping, and curling at corners.

  • We have 5' x 7' oriental rugs on carpet that never used to slip until we replaced the carpet. Now they slide up to 6" per day depending on traffic. We can’t anchor them with furniture and so we want to know how to stop the movement.

    The only pad we recommend for carpet is Carpet Lock. This felt and natural rubber pad does a fantastic job of preventing shifting and other types of movement when rugs are being walked on.

  • What rug pad do you recommend for a 5x7 wool rug with backing that's to go on a hardwood floor?

    I've got two great options for you. Either Contour Lock or Superior Lock. Both of these recycled felt and natural rubber pads have strong and reliable gripping that will put a stop to annoying rug movements such as slipping and sliding. They will also protect your floor from damage and extend the lifespan of your rug.

  • I want to reduce noise travelling from the third floor of my house to the second floor. In terms of noise reduction, I'm wondering how your products are better than something I can pick up at Lowe's. My rug is 5 by 7.

    Our rug pads are denser, and some are also non-slip. This makes them particularly good for reducing noise. Pads carried by Lowe's aren't very good for a number of reasons. Firstly, they are rebond pads and so there is no grip and your size rug is definitely going to slip unless there is a non-slip pad underneath it. Secondly, they are approximately 3/8" thick, and you are going to want something denser to cancel out the noise. Therefore, I recommend our 7/16" thick Superior Lock felt and natural rubber pad. I usually recommend this pad to customers who need soundproofing and grip. I've never had a complaint about it.
