Vista Rug (21x34-in.)
Kept the dog from slipping down the stairs
It does what it said it would, but I will need to add some sort of sticky pad to keep them in place as they move slightly when he charges down the stairs (but with these he CAN charge down the stairs!). I picked the natural color, which shows a lot of dirt, but it went with the decor. All in all, this fit the bill

Nice look - stays put
Has a nice look, very like the image online. And it works very well on the stairs, no need to attach with nails or glue. Stays put. Much nicer than what we'd seen at local home improvement stores. Would recommend.

Above average product
I like everything about the stair treads.....however they do not stay in place as they're represented to do.

Vista Rug 21" x 34"
They are very practical and easy to apply. Do not be mistaken though they will slip from where you put them not as advetised that they stay in place. You probably will have to tack it down in some fashion. That is not what I wanted I wanted to be able to put down in place and they would stay put they do not do that.

Not as described. Not soft to the feet. Looks worn
On the floor just a few days and the rug is matted down. No design even shows. It looks like a flat piece of carpet with no design/pattern/texture
Advertised that feet would love the plush feel. It's really flat and not the least bit plush. It looks like it has been down and walked on for years, not days

Don't waste your money!
We bought 8 sets of these for two sets of stairs. We tried to install them on one of the sets of stairs. They don't stay in place. They mostly stay if you are walking up the stairs, but they slide if you are walking down the stairs. The stairs are hardwood, with just a normal finish, nothing particularly slippery. Also, after about two trips, the pile on these flattens out, so they look dirty, old and sloppy. I read reviews, and I found a minority of comments along these lines but trusted the majority of reviews that were positive. Wish I hadn't -- they simply DO NOT WORK on hardwood stairs.

The color choices for this product are good. I got the largest size I could buy, wish they had a larger size, but the several I have look nice.

Finally Love My New Refinished Stairs
I recently had my hallway steps/treads changed from old carpeting to wood. Once finished though, my 15 year old dog had a problem going up and down to the point where she waited at the top of the steps for a "lift" up and/or down. I priced carpet treads at various home stores and on-line but found that in addition to the high price, they required special nailing, tacking, or taping to secure them.
When I saw the Vista treads in the catalog I ordered them as a last ditch effort to help my pup get up and down while not having to spend a fortune covering my beautiful new stairs.
These treads are amazing! They don't budge from the steps no matter how many times we go up and down. My dog loves her new found freedom and runs up and down whenever she wants to. I too feel much safer with the Vista treads. If I have company or want to show off my new wood stairs, I just pick them up and put them in the closet.
I would say the only downside would be selecting the correct color. The choices are somewhat limited and it's hard to get the full effect in the small pictures. Since I wanted a neutral beigey color, I first picked " Wheat" which ended up being too yellow/gold. I next purchased "Toast" which is a perfect neutral tan/beige color. I actually kept both colors so I can have one in the wash and not have to worry about slipping and sliding down the steps. I would love it if Vista would introduce a line of more colors and patterns--maybe an oriental or a modern motif. I'd even be willing be pay a little more for an upgraded look with the same unbelievable non-skid backing.
At any rate, I'm extremely happy with this product. In my opinion,there really isn't anything on the market that compares with the price, quality, and the effectiveness of these carpet treads. Besides all of that, they look great!
