Your rug WILL NOT move...
Nice and thin yet adds a nice amount of cushion to the rug. The rug feels nailed down its so grippy. You could get a much cheaper alternative at a certain swedish store but it will not guarantee this kind of grip.

This has now been down for some 3 months and the rug has not moved an inch, in spite of deep vacuuming, children playing on it, it being sat on etc. It needs to be put in place very carefully, but is easily cut to suit. Our rug would not stay in place, the smallest movement on it was enough to make it walk. Very happy with this product.

which side up ?
My underlay did not come with any instructions as to which side goes on the floor or carpet that the rug is going to go on. The JL website shows the grey side up but the white back ground does not give a clue as to wood or carpet below. It seems counter-intuitive not to put the more sticky grey side on the carpet pile and the under side of the rug on the less sticky white side. Would help with a better photo on the website or better still, the actual instructions....
Any thoughts JL ?

I have a fairly thick rug on top of carpet which used to travel all over the place thanks to my desk chair rolling around on it. The rug would get pushed against other furniture causing it to bunch up, the resultant creases taking a couple of days to straighten out.
I wasted some money on adhesive spikes - they made almost no difference and frequently became detached. I would have to remove my desk chair and reposition the rug literally twice a day which really irritated me.
So, still with some concern that nothing could stop the rug from moving, I shelled out the extra money for this underlay (I think it cost more than the rug!)
To my delight and disbelief, the rug hasn't moved an inch, or even a millimetre, since I put the underlay down a few weeks ago.
If your rug won't behave and it's driving you mad, this underlay is money very well spent!

An underlay that really does work!
After trying several other underlays for use on carpet, and none of them ever working, our wrinkled, travelling rug in the hall was driving me completely bonkers. A friend recommended we try this one. I was a little apprehensive, but the excellent reviews convinced me to give it a whirl despite the rather high price tag. Well- it actually works, whoop, whoop! It was extremely easy to fit and trim to size. Job done. Anguish over. Do not hesitate to buy this underlay.

Really useful product
At last a rug holder that keeps my rug stuck to the carpet (without harming it). No longer do I have to keep straightening the rug which used to wander around my lounge every time anyone stood on it, it stays near the French doors exactly where I want it!

Worth every penny.
Untill saw this on the John Lewis website I did not know that such a thing existed. I brought in to go underneath a flat weave rug which had the potential to slip around. The underlay works magnificently and is very easy to trim as necessary. A very good buy.
