Vista Stair Treads (set of 4)
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!!

So far I have only bought the round ones for the 3 different landings in my house. Two are on a vinyl floor and one is on carpeting. So far none of them have moved and they look very nice. I am going to buy sets for the carpeted steps as I want to protect them. I hope they stay in place. I don't mind a little adjustment. The reviews don't mention putting them directly on carpeted steps.

Do not stay put
Unlike most of the other reviewers, I find the stair treads move a lot. I am constantly straightening them. They do the job as far as preventing my dogs (and me) from slipping on the hardwood stairs, but I will be installing a runner on my stairs as these move way too much and do get matted rather quickly. I am glad to have them in the meantime--I have yet to see any similar product that is half as attractive.

Makes stairs quieter and safer
I bought these for our oak staircase to make them safer for family members. They wash beautifully and can be dried in the dryer, although some of the backing falls off. They do better on the line. If they start slipping on the stairs, that's my cue that they need to be washed and the stairs dusted.

Shocked by the excellent reviews
I ordered 3 sets of the stair treads based on the reviews. Out of the box, I liked them. Nice color (I ordered denim) and nice pattern. I put them on my oak staircase 1 week ago and they do not stay in place. Since they have a grid type pattern, after only 1 week they are matted down. You almost cant even see the grid type pattern on them anymore. I am so disappointed because they look like I have owned them for years. I cant imagine how they would look after being washed. That was the reason I purchased these in the first place, because they didn't need to be tacked down on my freshly redone staircase and the fact they were washable seeing I have 2 dogs. Too bulky to send back, so I am stuck with them until I can purchase something better. Just so disappointed that I am out the expense for a product that is NOT nonslip on MY staircase

Save your hardwood AND your dogs!
I bought 3 sets for my wood stairs 7+ years ago. My older dogs were not able to go upstairs without sliding and falling. These solved that problem and I ended up buying another color so I'd have a fall/winter look and a lighter spring/summer look. Just last year, I gave one full set to my sister for her toy poodle who broke her leg after slipping on my sister's wood stairs. She was amazed at how great they looked after years of use.
I vacuum with the brush attachment because any other attachment will cause the treads to move around on the stairs. After a quick run of the vacuum, these look brand new again. When I wash them, I hang them outside or in another room to air dry.
It is time for me to buy a new set because the backing on the original set is crumbling off and they are moving on my stairs. I think they have held up extraordinarily well and have no problem buying them again.
