In response to our common consumer questions, we decided to put together a short and simple video that demonstrates how to use Rug Gripper so that you can use it with the rugs and mats in your homes.

Before getting started with the video or written steps, here’s a brief overview of the Rug Gripper product.

Rug Gripper Overview

Rug Gripper is a no hassle product that is easy to use on all floor surfaces and with virtually any type of rug or mat backing. Unlike many other products on the market, Rug Gripper is safe for all floor surfaces. The following video will visually walk you through the 3 step process on how to use Rug Gripper.     

How to Use Rug Gripper


Step 1 - Place Rug Gripper in the desired location.

The first step is to clean any dust or dirt from the area where you will be placing the Rug Gripper. Next, measure and cut the Rug Gripper strips to the size of the rug you are trying to secure to the floor. Don’t be afraid to add more strips depending on the size of the rug you are trying to secure.     

Step 2 - Place Rug Gripper on the floor.

In step 2, place Rug Gripper strips on the floor with the yellow plastic liner facing up. With your hand, press the Rug Gripper to the floor over the whole length of the strip. This step is important because Rug Gripper uses a pressure sensitive technology that is activated with pressure. If you need to adjust the placement of a strip, feel free to take up the Rug Gripper and place in the correct area. Rug Gripper is reusable and can be picked up and put down many times, so don’t worry if you make a mistake.      

Step 3 - Remove the top yellow layer of the Rug Gripper..

In the final step, remove the yellow plastic liner from the top of the Rug Gripper. After you remove the liner, place your rug or mat over the Rug Gripper strips and walk a few times where the strips are under the rug to secure the rug to the floor.
