Product Details

Contour Lock is a 1/8’’-thick felt and rubber rug pad that offers a strong grip with moderate levels of cushioning without bulking.

Contour Lock’s solid design protects floors from scratching and rug backings, which also makes it an ideal mate for rugs with rough backings; it’s particularly well-suited to flat-woven rugs such as Kilims, Dhurries, and Soumaks.

Contour Lock’s felt is heat-pressed to a 1/8”-thick density and securely fasten to the bottom of your area rug. Our backing is made from a natural rubber blend which contains less clay filler to prevent premature degradation of pads in high-traffic areas. (Synthetic latex, aka styrene-butadiene, often is blended with less expensive clay fillers that cause the rubber to break down more quickly.)

Customer Questions & Answers

  • Do I need a non-slip pad or a cushion pad?

    Non-slip pads are best for high-traffic areas such as foyers and hallways, where thin rugs and runners are prone to slipping and sliding. Our cushion pads add a plush layer for large rugs already anchored by furniture, such as living and dining rooms. Should you decide you need a degree of both grip and cushioning, opt for a felt and rubber pad.

  • Which pad works best with jute rugs?

    We would suggest Contour Lock or Superior Lock which are both felt and rubber pads. Both of these are made from a combination of rubber and recycled felt fibers. The felt upper layer is ideal for attaching itself to uneven rug surfaces such as those in jute rugs, while the rubber under layer keeps the rug firmly in place on the floor. Contour lock is 1/8" thick while Superior Lock comes in 1/3" or 7/16" thicknesses.

  • Which rug types work well with Contour Lock?

    Contour Lock is one of our most versatile pads and can be used with all rug types and styles. With smaller rugs and runner rugs, Contour Lock will add a layer of cushioning without the bulk of a thicker pad. With larger rugs, Contour Lock will combine moderate cushion with a strong gripping power. Contour Lock, like all felt and rubber rug pads, work really well with low pile rugs, such as flat weaves. Contour Lock also works well with wool, tufted, knotted, and hooked rugs.

  • Which rug pad works best with radiant heat flooring?

    We suggest Contour Lock, Superior Lock, or Eco Plush. Contour Lock and Superior lock are made from a combination of rubber and recycled felt fibers and offer both cushioning and non-slip grip. Eco Plush is made from only felt and solely offers cushioning. Felt and rubber are both natural materials and are durable enough to withstand changing temperatures (such as those with radiant heat flooring) without breaking down or damaging the floor.

  • Which rug pads are best for shag rugs?

    We would recommend a felt and rubber pad like RugPro, Contour Lock or Superior Lock. If you want a low profile option, RugPro is the best fit. If you would like to add a some cushioning, Contour Lock or Superior Lock is recommended.
