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.
I am looking for a pad to stop a 5' x 7' rug from making ridges while on top of carpeting. What have you got?
I suggest our Carpet Lock rug pad which is the only one we recommend for rugs on carpet. This felt and natural rubber pad is 7/16" thick and designed to keep rugs lying flat and fixed in their place.
My 5ft x 7ft and 8ft x 10ft rugs sit on vinyl plank floors and need pads. Both will have furniture on top so a non-slip pad isn’t required. Previously, my floors were stained by rubber mats and I want to avoid this from happening again. Recommendations?
I would recommend Anchor Grip for the smaller size rug and Eco Plush or Anchor Grip for the larger size. Anchor Grip is a non-slip pad but if you are confident that your rug will not move then Eco Plush will be just fine. Neither of these pads will harm your floor in any way. Eco Plush is a 100% heat-pressed felt pad while Anchor Grip is a soybean oil-based polymer blend.
I have a 5x7 rug on a laminate floor. It is not anchored by furniture. I’m looking at the non-slip and cushion pad at 1/4" thick. Do you think this thickness will present a trip hazard? To ensure the correct fit do I just enter the exact rug size?
The Superior Lock 1/4" is perfect for you. It will provide lots of grip and some cushioning and won't bulk up the rug. So you don't need to worry about tripping. With regards to ensuring the correct fit, yes, just enter your rug's dimensions and we'll custom cut the perfect fitting pad for you for free.
I have a 5x7 rug on a hardwood floor that has a tung oil finish. I am trying to decide between Super Lock Natural and Contour Lock. Which is the safest for hardwood floors?
Our pads are safe for all floors and finishes but I suggest you first contact your floor manufacturer and ask them for their guidelines on what is safe for your floor.
I'd like to order rug pads for 5' x 7' area rugs in bedrooms and a living room with vinyl planking. I've heard conflicting information about which is the right rug pad material. Please recommend the best material and options from your web site. Thank you!
Very often customers with a similar floor type to yours go for our Anchor Grip pad which is a soybean oil-based polymer blend that is safe for all hardwood floors and finishes. However, please do check with your flooring manufacturer for their specific guidelines.
I have a 5' x 7' rug on wall-to-wall carpeting. A pedestal table and four 'rolling' chairs are on top of the rug, but there is bunching and wrinkling. Will your Carpet Lock pad work well with this rug?
Yes, it should be fine and will ensure your rug remains flat and wrinkle free. The Carpet Lock felt and natural rubber pad was specifically designed to keep rugs secure on wall-to-wall carpeting.
What rug pad would work best under a 5x7 Indian hand-woven rug? I would like it to have some grip in addition to cushion since it's pretty thin. I’ve been looking at Contour Lock, Superior Lock, and Anchor Grip. This rug is for our bedroom.
I think you could go with any of these especially as they are low profile. My specific recommendation would be Superior Lock 1/4" or Contour Lock which is 1/8" thick. They will give you cushioned comfort and stability. You mentioned that there isn’t a lot of foot traffic but I would still go with a pad with a gripping attribute.
I am looking to purchase the Contour Lock rug pad. I like and appreciate the option to customize it, but what size do I buy for my 5' x 7' rug? Do I get something smaller or do I get the exact same size? I'd prefer not to cut the rug pad.
When placing an order with us all you would have to do is enter your rug dimensions and we will cut the pad to fit. We would trim 2" from the length and width of the pad so that it isn't exposed when placed under your rug. If you do not want the pad trimmed you can leave us a special instruction not to custom cut it.
I am looking for pads for ten Persian rugs of variable sizes (roughly 5by7) to use on hardwood floors. They cannot have any rubber or latex due to my allergies. Do you have any options or suggestions?
The best choice would be Anchor Grip, a non-slip pad that contains no rubber or latex. It is safe to use on all hardwood floors and finishes.
I need a rug pad for a 5 feet x 7 feet cowhide on a hardwood floor. What do you suggest?
I recommend either Anchor Grip or RugPro. Both non-slip pads deliver maximum gripping power and are safe for hardwood floors.
I want a pad for a 5' x 7' rug on hardwood that’s anchored on two sides by furniture. I need some cushion but don’t know if I also need grip. I can’t decide between Eco Plush 3/8" or 1/2" or Superior Lock 7/16". I don’t want the rug elevated. Suggestions?
With your rug size, I suggest you purchase a non-slip pad such as Superior Lock. This pad is also good for cushioning. If you are concerned about possibly creating a tripping hazard, I would consider the 1/4" thickness.
