Grip-a-Rug 5 "Fantastic product.." Patricia Mary Davison 02 May 2014 I purchased a large rug to place on laminate flooring in front of the fireplace. It became a danger/hazard zone for anyone carrying the wood basket in to place on the hearth...the rug would just whizz sideways on the slippery laminate flooring and although the person just about remained upright- the wood basket invariably was dropped and contents strewn all over rug and floor. Too dangerous to tolerate. I read the negative reviews before my purchase but thought I would give the product a try anyway, before getting rid of the new rug. It works. It's fantastic. No more trips and falls.
