I don't get some reviewers saying these buttons keep falling off. I strongly disagree, mine stick just perfectly to the surface. I have used many kinds of similar buttons in the past and the last ones from a Swedish furniture store were ok for some time, but quite thin and kept wearing off. I have had these for only a couple of weeks but they are thicker and I have a feeling they will last for ages. And the cut your own pad is an excellent idea as well!
