Vista Stair Treads (set of 4)
Update - I STILL Love These Things!! :)
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!

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.

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.

I'm ordering for the second time because I finally wore them out! I have had the for 2 years and wash them weekly. They come out of the dryer beautifully and keep my dogs from sliding all over the place, not to mention me from slipping.

These aren't nonslip.
I was all fired up when I bought these and then a week later had to buy additional things to keep them put. I have wood stairs and they just wouldn't sit still. We had to readjust daily. Because of this they will not receive 5 stars.

These solve a problem!
I read many of the reviews before buying these. I had previously purchased the same brand of rectangular rugs to put at inside the front door and at the bottom of the steps where the dog was sliding on my tile. These rugs are fantastic, look good and stay in place. Our older dog always wants to follow us down the unfinished wood basement steps but he always slipped and I was afraid one of these days he would fall. So I bought the step version of the same rug I already liked. I got a dark color to hide dirt and though I have not washed them yet, it is one of the features I liked most about these. The dog is definitely happier with the rugs, but for some reason he does go slower. I tried placing them away from the edge a bit based on reviewer feedback and I think the texture change is why the dog goes slower. I tried putting them up to the edge of the step but they move when at the end of the step since they are not perm. anchored. I believe the movement is from people's feet not the dog's. Definitely a great dog step solution! Good quality and look are fantastic!

Vista Stair Treads
This is the best product. Needed them for my stairs - dog would not go up the stairs once I got the vista stair treads he goes up and down. They stay in place and are easy to clean. Amazing rugs!!
