Rated 5 out of 5 by ShellyH518 I Love these.
I bought these because we put new oak treads and risers on our stairs, I loved the look but they were slippery. I put these on and they still look great, they aren't slippery and I don't have to vacuum. I toss them in the dryer for 10 min and wipe the stairs down. My first set lasted over 8 years, ordering a new set today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rappy Just added new treads with the old after 4 years
This is actually my 2nd review for this product. The other review was just as good. What's different about this review is I added 4 new treads on the right of the landing while keeping the main stairs, landing, and right of landing stairs with the old treads. They almost look identical after 4 years of use and washing. Sure the piling on the old isn't quite what it used to be, but once washed the design comes back, they fluff up nice, and the color has not faded after 4 years of heavy use. Guests will be able to tell a difference, but barely so. You would have to ask them to actually look to see the difference. With 3 kids and 2 huge dogs they have held up remarkably well making the stairs safer and quieter for all. (ps. I bought extras at original purchase)

Rated 2 out of 5 by cca35 NOT MACHINE WASHABLE!
I ordered 3 sets of these a few years ago . I decided to wash them yesterday. I followed the washing instructions on the tag and to my surprise the backing on most of them broke down and made a mess in the washer. I only washed a few at a time and the second load I only washed in a short cycle and the same thing happened. I dryed the first load on low heat in the dryer and it continued to break down. Now they do not stick to my stairs. Very frustrated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RoooB These are great!!!
I purchased these several years ago and they are still looking pretty good, but my cat likes to claw them. We put them down with double sided tape on our wood stairs, and they have become his favorite scratching post. I am ordering more for back-ups. Love these! And so does Pickles...

I wrote a review for these stair treads on April 27, 2013. I'm still using the same set, and I couldn't be happier with them. They still look brand new - and I bought the light natural color. I've long gotten over my fear of washing them, because I know they hold up so well. Every so often, I toss them in the washing machine and let them air dry in the sun. When they're off, my dog definitely notices - he slips and slides on the stairs. As soon as they're back on, he's steady and sure-footed. These stair treads really work, and I can't believe how well they're holding up. Some reviews have complained that they don't grip? but they grip really well on my wood stairs. As stated in my first review, they do tend to move a bit over time, but they never slip noticeably when you step on them, and they're definitely not dangerous. They're as good now as they were the day I got them, and I was happy with them from the start. I'm so glad I purchased these!

Rated 1 out of 5 by MarD DOES NOT GRIP
Treads are hazardous on the stairs since they NEVER GRIP. They are always moving around. I don't recommend them to anyone. Very dissapointed that the company didn't respond to my complaints either. Don't waste your money on this product

I bought these several months ago and was surprised to discover that they didn't stay in place on my wood stairs. I was bothersome and I bought a product to secure the rugs in place to deal with the issue. I have only been compelled to write after seeing another catalog that seems to be guaranteeing these rugs will not move. THEY MOVE! ALL THE TIME! I have had to wash them and discovered that now I need to replace the backing I put on them to stay in place and the glue is sticking to my wood stairs. Very disappointing product. I'd highly recommend finding another product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SpartyKath Not staying in place like the first set i ordered
I am having a love/hate relationship with these treads. I ordered my first set four years ago and LOVED them. Took nearly that whole time before they stopped gripping our hard wood stairs. The carpet still looked FANTASTIC on them, so I was a little sad to have to replace, but with two kids I figured replacing every four years was ok.
Ordered the new set in toast....they don't stay in place at ALL. They are sliding all over the place, I am adjusting them DAILY. Terribly disappointed. If something changed about how you manufactured them, please change it back. The whole purpose of these is to make our stairs safer, and with them slipping around I feel like they are not contacting that. Such a bummer.
