'Duck Brand Hold-It For Rugs' is discontinued and no inventory now remains.

Product Description

Duck Brand Hold-It For Rugs is a patented non-slip latex foam coated with an adhesive backing on one side. It is designed to keep your rugs and mats in place without any floor damage. Duck Hold-It For Rugs® is repositionable and works on all types of flooring surfaces including vinyl, tile, hardwood, and laminate. Do not use this product if putting a rug or mat down on top of existing carpeting. Since the foam side is going down on top of your flooring (the adhesive side bonds to the rug or mat) it will not leave an adhesive residue behind like some double-sided tapes would.

Installation Directions

  1. The floor surface must be clean and dry.
  2. Measure and cut 'Hold-It For Rugs' to fit the outline of the rug or mat being held in place.
  3. Remove the release liner from the foam and apply the exposed liner side to the rug or mat.
  4. Press rug down firmly in place.
Country of Origin: United States.

QUESTION: could we use this to fit together pieces of carpet tiles to form a 1 piece area rug ?
ANSWER: We would recommend Duck's single-sided carpet seaming tape (see https://www.findtape.com/p644/) for an application such as that. Thank you.

QUESTION: Will a piece of this keep a microwave from sliding on granite countertops?
ANSWER: I got this tape to secure carpet treads to wooden stairs. It only has "adhesive" on the side attached to the step. My carpet treads don't slip and you can reposition the treads if necessary. It might be helpful when you want to move the microwave to clean behind/under it. 

User Reviews

Made in the USA
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
natural rubber
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
zinc oxide
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
Examples: 1/16 inch = 62.5 mils; 1/32 inch = 31.25 mils
The cut level indicates how many grams of cutting load a glove can withstand from a sharp blade before being penetrated.
Lower gauge gloves are heavier - have thicker construction, fewer stiches knitted per inch and offer less dexterity.
Higher gauge gloves are lighter - have thinner/finer construction, more stitches knitted per inch and offer more dexterity.
Gloves offered typically runs from 7 to 18 (12 and 13 are in the middle of the scale).
