You might be wondering...

I am looking for some grip for my two small and plush area rugs that are on a hardwood floor. However, the pads I used to put under cheaper rugs made their edges and corners curl up. Will your pads do that to my rugs?

This won't be a problem at all with our pads. I suggest you look at Anchor Grip and Contour Lock, two of our thin pads.

I'm loose laying a piece of carpet over hardwood in a walk-in closet. The carpet is dense cut pile but pretty low profile. I would like some insulation as the floor is over an unheated garage. Is Anchor Grip or Superior Lock best for my situation?
What rug pad do you recommend for a 5x8 cotton rug that sits on top of a wood floor?
What is the best pad for Beni Ourain thick wool rugs that are 5' x 8' and 10' x 8'? They will be going on either a hardwood floor or a marble tiled floor.
Is the SpillTech pad too thick for a 5' x 8' thin wool kilim-style dining room rug, and will it have enough grip? We bought a Contour Lock pad for the last dining room rug and really like it.

Perfectly cut

Keeps the Moroccan carpet from moving on my wood floors and from stretching out.

thickest felt padding carpet mat rug pad
Liked so well I ordered two more for my other area rugs.

This is a nice thick pad. I was previously using carpet padding wall to wall but it cannot compare to this pad even though they were the same price.

I love that this company is making products in America. These rugs stay put and will not slide. I plan on buying two more pads.

Great product!

You won't find another waterproof rug pad for less, let alone custom cut. Not bulky or too thick, keeps my rugs from moving and protects our floors.
