Additional Information

Questions And Answers No
Synthetic Latex vs. Natural Rubber

As the cost of rubber increases, manufacturers have started using less “real” rubber and more clay & synthetic fillers in their rug pads. While these pads work well short term, after a few years they tend to crumble and break apart.

Our natural rubber backing is heat fused to the felt, not sprayed on or glued. It’s then coated with an additional 5oz per square yard of natural rubber. Natural rubber will not only grip better, but more importantly outlast similar styled felt and rubber padding.

The picture to your right shows how the clay/synthetic clay fillers will break apart and turn to dust over 3-5 years.

Premium-Lock

When should you use a felt + rubber rug pad vs a 100% felt rug pad?

How effective is this pad for area rugs on carpeting?

Wonderful pads Review by Liz

I have purchased 3 of the premium-lock pads. I had them custom cut 1/4 inch. They are cut straight and fit perfectly. They are well made, there is no slipping, edges don't curl. Arrived quickly and well packaged. Very pleased. (Posted on 4/15/16)
Excellent Rug Pads!! Review by westcoastmom
Quality
Price
I ordered the Premium Lock Rug Pad for an expensive rug we recently purchased. The rug pad came nicely packaged and the quality of the rug pad is excellent. Previously, we had horrible experiences with Latex/synthetic backed rugs and rug pads and will not be going back to that type of material again. Over time, we found the Latex/synthetic rug/rug pads falling apart and turning into a fine dust - lessons learned.

We will only be using the felt and Rubber Rug pads for all our rug needs. We have been very happy with the quality of the Rug pads offered by Rug Pad USA. This is our 2nd time ordering from them and it will not be our last.

Amazing customer service. Very good pad Review by Brian F.
Quality
Price
We tried the Premium-Lock 1/3 and 7/16 pads. I think they measure a little thinner than advertised, but they are very, very good rug pads. Our 9x11 rug is on the thinner side, so we went with the 7/16 which feels about right to us.

We were looking for the best quality pad on the market and compared many brands. My wife likes the RugPads Premium-Lock best. I'm still a little partial to a different leading brand, but that one isn't thick enough for my liking, so I think we ended up with the best product for our needs.

Customer Service !!!!
This was probably the best customer service experience from any company I have ever worked with. When the pad arrived, I had questions/concerns. I called Karl at the number included in the packing materials. I'm pretty sure the call was forwarded to his cell because it sounded a little windy and was around lunch time. That was very nice, compared to leaving a message and wondering how many hours or days it might be before a return call.

Even halfway through my concern, Karl started bending over backwards to make sure I was a satisfied customer. It was clear that his goal was to have a very happy customer no matter what. He took care of everything, including a return for a custom cut pad size. It was amazingly fast and easy to work with Karl. I could not be happier. Buy with confidence from this vendor.

In case you are wondering, no, this is not a paid or forged review. I'm a real customer. I almost never write reviews for products unless there is a real problem. I am super excited to spend time writing this one because the experience was so good. Thank you Karl.

Brian

PS: As for the advertised thickness .... you might want to plan that each thickness advertised might actually arrive about 1/16" thinner than advertised. This might be due to the compression that happens when the rubber is pressed to the felt? I don't know, but these are still great pads and they have enough thickness options to satisfy just about everyone.

Great Quality and Fast Delivery Review by Mike
Quality
Price
We ordered five Premium Lock rug pads. They are really good quality and work great. They are much better than the rug pads available through local flooring and rug companies.

We had them custom cut to our rug sizes and they arrived the perfect size. Our order was filled, shipped and received quickly - no waiting around.

We bought the 1/4", because we were afraid the thicker pads would be too thick. It's a perfectly acceptable thickness, however, we might order 1/3" pads in the future for a little more cushion. The trade off is more of a lip at the edge of the rug.

Rug pad USA is what every online retailer should be - fast, convenient and competitively priced for high quality merchandise. I'd recommend them to anyone. (Posted on 10/31/15)

These pads work well under my area rugs. I have an active household and needed a pad that would stick. I was so tired of my rugs moving against the walls. Previously I had a waffle style pad and the animals moved the rug all the time. There’s a little movement between the pad and the rug, but not with the floors. Delivery was efficient and there’s no odor. I am pleased with the quality of these pads. (Posted on 7/31/14)

This is the best pad ever! We have a kilim rug and the pad is perfect under it, plush and good padding. Even when we are vacuuming the pad doesn’t move. We placed it on brand new hardwood floors. Thankfully, it didn’t have that awful smell of something you buy online. I purchased a cheaper pad for another rug and wish I had purchased another Duo-lock for that rug too. I’m still wishing.

The quality of this pad is very good unfortunately the 3/8" version was just too thick. It raises my rug way too high off the ground.

We took some time to carefully research which type of pad we should use on our hardwood floors. I spoke with a higher end dealer inquiring about a recommendation and this is what he recommended. I called in to make sure this pad would work with our floors. Spoke to a gentleman named Karl, who was very helpful and recommended the custom cut options to fit accordingly. But more amazingly is the pad came custom cut within two days of our order date. We couldn't be happier with our pad, the price, and turnaround time. (Posted on 4/8/14)
Good Grip, hasn't crumbled one bit yet Review by JMello
Quality
Price
Although 100% felted rugs have better cushioning, their thickness would not serve the purpose in the room where I had fixed the Premium-Lock. The material looks more flexible compared to the other rug pads I have used before. I leave further analysis and verdict to the future. I mean time will tell whether it’ll go dry and crumble or not. I must however commend it so far for a job well done in holding up while providing minimal cushioning. Like I said, this is an awesome pad for those having tight clearances with doors. Last though not least let me mention that this pad was actually 9’x12’, and it was very nice to have my pad custom cut for me to fit nicely underneath my area rug. J (Posted on 2/24/14)
Only 3 Star Because Rug on Carpet Issue Review by Jdarlin
Quality
Price
In my home are two 3X4 rugs. I have one on a tile floor and the other on a carpeted floor. It was because this pad is marketed as something that will work well on both of these floor types that I decided to give it a try. Overall, it does get the job done. I like the fact that the pad is thick, as the added cushioning feels great to walk on. Those who have to trim the pad may find that this added thickness makes it a bit challenging to cut the pad to size, hence why I recommend you use the custom cut specs offered.

Each side of this pad has a different texture. There’s a rubbery side for gripping to hard, smooth surfaces and a side that’s quite rough and made especially for gripping to the back of rugs. Keeping rugs in place on tile flooring is no problem with this pad. Since I’ve had this pad under my rugs there hasn’t been any issue with the pad or rug moving across the floor.

However, I’m not impressed with the performance the pad give when placed between a rug and carpet. Of course, I am under the assumption that I correctly followed the directions provided, as it says that the pad should be flipped over when being used on carpet. In this case, the rough side is for gripping to the carpeted floor and the rubbery side holds on the rug. What I found is that, when placed this way, the rug slides off the pad after a good amount of traffic. It’s true that the rug pad held strong to the carpet; it’s just that it didn’t hold so well to the bottom of the rug.

I tried using the rug the other way, flipping it over and using it on the carpet just as recommended for hard floors, but now the rug stays put on the pad and they both move around on the carpet. It’s not perfect, but I find it to be a bit better. Every few days I have to put the setup back in place, but that’s normal with any rug so it doesn’t bother me much.

In fact, my plan it to purchase an even bigger rug to put on my living room floor; something in the 6’ to 10’ range. For this rug, I plan to get one of these pads as well. My hope is that I won’t experience the shifting issue when I use a bigger rug. (Posted on 2/20/14)
Great Pad! Review by DanK
Quality
Price
Finally a rug pad that does what’s meant to do! I’m so pleased with this purchase because our rugs are so much more comfortable to walk on and they actually stay in place. The felt and rubber rug pad combo works great. I’m using my pad on my lament floor, under my 5x8 rug. There was some trimming to do to the pad in order to get it the right size, but that was easy. Truthfully, I’m so glad it was too big instead of being too small.
In one of the reviews I checked out before making my purchase, the person complained about the price, saying that the pads are too expensive. For this reason, I highly recommend to anyone that needs one of the bigger pad sizes that they just buy two small pads instead of one big one. Then they can trim to fit just as I did. Some clear packing tape does the trick to seal the seam made between the two, but it’s not a requirement, as the rug will stay in place just the same.
My order came fast and the pads arrived in excellent condition. Thanks so much for such an effective product!

Good Product For the Price Review by JanetMill

Although I knew that the store was not far from where I lived, I was still surprised at how fast it got to me. The pad was thick, just right for my wooden apartment floors. I also liked how it was packed, inside a clean plastic bag. I was surprised that there was no noticeable industrial smell coming from the pad when I opened it, since I knew that it was made of felt and recycled rubber. It just smelled clean, and there was no shedding. The pad was large enough to divide among my three rugs, one large rug and two smaller ones. It does a pretty good job of securing the rug to the floor, especially the largest rug where my dog lies to down. Even with my dog using the larger rug, it still stays in place. Great product for the price. (Posted on 1/21/14)

Felt and Rubber works well together Review by Jae

I research my products before I splurge on something for my new home, especially since I have hardwood floors. I did the same thing for this rug. I looked at consumer reviews and product sites and I have to say that I'm glad I did. I read so many great reviews about this rug and finally bought one after I read the reviews. I ordered a large pad and readied my scissors for cutting when it arrived. I cut the whole thing into smaller pieces to fit various area rugs in my house and they did the job perfectly. My rugs are in place, even with my dog on the loose and heavy foot traffic in some places. I checked the hardwood floors after a week to see if there are any problems and nothing! My floors are pristine, no scuffs, adhesive marks, or discolorations. Will recommend this rug and pad ensemble for anyone who are worried about the slightest scuffs on their expensive hardwood flooring. (Posted on 12/19/13)
Great Rug Pad Review by Diane T
Quality

Had a little bit of difficulty positioning the rug on top of the carpet, since I didn't know that you have to put the pad up when you place it over the carpet. The rubber pads do a very good job of gripping the rug, however, which is great since I really want my rug to stay put, even if it is located in a high traffic area. You may need a bit of assistance when rolling the rug out for the first time but aside from that, this rug looks and works great!

I love how the rug smelled clean straight out of the package. No odor whatsoever! I saw a bit of shedding, but nothing that a quick vacuuming can't handle. Even after a few days, I saw no traces of fibers and the floor underneath stayed clean.

I love how the pad feels under my feet. It feels sturdy while adding some depth and softness. This is a great way to improve an already nice rug, or if you simply want to add a bit of firmness to an already mushy rug.

The rug and the pads really do an awesome job of keeping everything in place. I've had this rug and pad for about a month already and although there's nothing on top, the rug stays put! It even stays that way when I vacuum.

Couldn't Be Happier Review by NancyI

I bought a Karastan wool rug that I can put over the living room carpet. I typically use pads over over the carpet to give the rug a more solid feel under the feet when walked on. This is by far the nicest rug I've used at home and paying a few extra for the pad was definitely worth it. It kept the carpet in place and protected my floors!

I did a bit of online research before buying this rug and it did not disappoint. I was not so sure about my purchase at first since I had bought a lot of pads online before after doing the same amount of research and they have not lived up to my expectations. This pad, however, made me so happy the moment I got it in the mail. I trashed all my old pads and never looked back.

I loved how the store delivered this order quickly. The product arrived just 12 hours after I got the confirmation. Talk about fast! They packed it carefully, too. My pad was wrapped carefully in white packaging and it was in pristine condition when I opened it. Couldn't be happier!

The Best Felt + Rubber Pad I have tried Review by D.M.J.
Quality
Price
I've ordered many felt and rubber pads from various sources as I like the way they hold with my Oriental rugs. I'm quite impressed with the quality of this one. The felt portion is very soft and cushioned. Many times this felt portion of these pads are too dense and tough, and therefore doesn't compress like it should when you walk over it.

In addition, the rubber underbody of the pad holds very well and doesn't break apart. Often times with these pads the rubber backed portion of the pad will look worn and flake/break apart, which looks terrible and is very annoying to clean up. Thus far shedding is minimal.

The one thing I have noticed however is the picture of the rubber bottom looks slightly different than what I ordered. The backing of my pad is more of an off brown rather than blue, but again very happy with the performance of this pad. (Posted on 8/20/13)

We have an antique persian rug in our dining room and it has been losing its shape over the years. We have searched and searched for a pad that will prevent the rug from shifting.
