This tape really works for us! I wanted to wait well over a month to give a quality review.

We have an oriental runner 2.5' wide by 20' long going down a hallway which itself is already wall-to-wall carpeted. Somehow this carpet-on-carpet combo mixes with foot traffic to generate a bizarre phenomenon in which the oriental runner crawls sideways about an inch per day with freakish determination in an attempt to climb the right hand wall. If we didn't constantly drag it back into place (I probably just imagined hearing it scream in frustration) the runner would wrinkle itself into a bunch against the baseboard in about two weeks.

The tape solved all that. But I have some advice.

FIRST: Lay the tape strips *parallel* to the direction of carpet drift. We tried an experiment in which half the runner had short strips width-wise across the bottom and the other half had two long strips lengthwise. The lengthwise section of runner managed to break free and make about two inches of progress in about 3 weeks. We re-did everything using the short, width-wise strip scheme, and the thing has not budged in 2 or 3 weeks now.

SECOND: Any two-sided tape has the difficult-to-remove backing problem. This tape is not too bad, but to make things easy on yourself: Cut the tape at a steep angle so there is a sharp point to work on, and then press HARD to get the tape adhering well. Then it is easy to lightly pick with your nail at the sharp corner to get the backing started off the tape.

Really happy we don't have to wrestle with our oriental runner any more!

Since I wrote this review, thought I would update it to report that I do have to replace the tape once every few months or so. But still well-worth it.

I think this double-sided carpet tape is wonderful, and it does what nothing else was able to do, and that is: to adhere carpet runners to carpet on the floor. It worked perfectly for me, and I would recommend it to anyone who has to do the same. It's fairly easy to remove the backing...I've got arthritis, so it's not quite as easy as it would normally be to remove the backing from one side of the tape.

I used this product to hold down area rugs in my living room, one being as you come into the door onto our new carpet. It has been down for about 4 months and rugs are all still in place, even after my three yr old has picked at the edges and spilled things on it, my 9 month old has put a thousand miles crawling over it, and foot traffic has been severe. Great!

I live in an old house with all hardwood floors, and I love area rugs. Have tons of them. But rugs have nearly broken up my marriage in the past. My husband would threaten to nail them to the floor because they moved so much, even with EXPENSIVE grippers underneath. This tape was my last effort, and it's one of the best things I've ever spent money on. I've had my rugs taped for over six months now, and NOT ONE of them has budged, even the one at the back door where two adults, three children, one dog, and three cats tromp in and out all day. I vacuum the rugs. They don't move. It's a miracle.

I keep another family's children after school. They have hardwood floors and rugs. And all the rugs move. I nearly fell one day when I got up off the toilet and the bathroom rug slipped. So I took a roll of my rug tape to that mom and told her to use it. Voila, problem solved. NO more slipping in the bathroom.

This tape is also safe to pull up even after many months of use. I taped down a rug in our RV (on carpet, mind you) and pulled it up six months later to clean (yes, it will pull up with a lot of force). The tape left ABSOLUTELY no residue or marks on either the underlying carpet or the rug. I was amazed. I didn't put that rug back in the RV, but I am convinced that if I had, it would've stuck just as long as I'd have wanted it to.

Usage tip: Don't be stingy. Use enough of the tape. I usually do stripes down the back of the rug about two inches apart. That uses a lot, but it's worth it.

Summary: If you've been fighting your <expletive> rugs, get some of this tape!!

I needed some carpet tape to keep carpet pads in place on our wood stairs. This did the task fine with two strips per pad. Only problem was figuring how to peel off the backing! Googled it and discovered that you have to make a shallow cut (with Xacto knife) on the end of backing. This will allow you to peel off a small portion of the backing and then stripping the rest off is easy!

I was faced with having to tape my area rugs to my house carpets and had tried a few other things including the rubberized rug stays and nothing worked. Did some research and this looked like it might do the trick......and boy did it! I have three golden retrievers and they love to play on the rug in the hall where I used this tape. They jump, wrestle, run, romp and about anything else you can imagine that involves doggie play. I put a two foot strip of this tape on all four edges of the rug, pressed it down good and it hasn't moved since. It's been a month now and no problems whatsoever. My house carpet is a short pile, not sure if it would work on a deep pile but it wouldn't suprise me. I've got one more runner coming and first thing I'm going to do is put this tape on it. Highly recommended.
