Rug Settler Slip Resistant Anchor Pins to secure a rug or sheet over a carpet

Rug settlers are needed in every household where there is a danger of tripping over rugs.
Rug Settler can be used in homes, offices, cars, trucks, RVs, and boats.
We suggest securing a plastic sheet with "Rug Settlers" over an automobile carpet to protect against rainwater, mud, and dust.
The "Rug Settler" top is designed with rounded margins to make it user-friendly. The Clear top surface makes it virtually invisible while in place.

DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT IF:

There is a danger of kids pulling it out and getting injured, although it gets firmly engaged and not easily pulled out.
There is a danger of elders who can trip if rug settlers are not installed correctly. Although its thickness over the rug is 2.5mm, that is only one-tenth of an inch.

IMPORTANT: Make sure the combined thickness of overlay and underlay do not exceed a total thickness of 1 inch, as our rug settlers work best for that thickness. If the thickness of the overlay is 0.75 inches and the thickness of the underlay is 0.5 inches, these settlers would not work well and give you a buldge. Please see the picture below.

How to Insert the Rug Settler?

The primary goal of this product is to secure a rug over a carpet. When a rug is laid down over a carpet, it may starts catching the footsteps and may cause people to trip. These pins are designed in a way that the top flat portion sits on the surface of overlay (rug) and the first 0.5 inch of the wire underneath passes through the overlay vertically. After the first bend to the second bend passes through the underlay (carpet) at an angle of 45 and rest of the portion of wire sits under the underlay.  See the picture

Instructions:

  1. Lift up the overlay rug approximately three inches.
  2. Hold the top transparent part of the settler using thumb and fingers from opposing sides
  3. Push the pins of the settlers vertically in the overlay rug, piercing through the overlay.
    • You can also use nose pliers to hold the prongs and push it vertically down firmly.
    • Some of our customers also recommended heating up the sharp tip to pierce, especially for the synthetic rugs quickly.

Note: Do not pierce the rug at an angle (diagonally). 

  1. For the underlay carpet, locate the place where the prongs of your settler will pass through and mark it.
  2. Pierce the underlay carpet an inch away from the marked area using another rug settler.
  3. Once the second settler engages the carpet, change its position from vertical to horizontal. This will raise the carpet, thus allowing enough space for the first rug settler to pierce through.
  4. Using the first settler, pierce the underlay carpet on the marked area raised by the second settler.
  5. Once the first settler has pierced, push it all the way to secure it in its final position.
    1. To avoid tripping hazards, make sure it is pushed all the way.
  6. Now remove the second settler

Point to consider

Make sure the combined thickness of overlay and underlay do not exceed a total thickness of 1 inch, as our rug settlers work best for that thickness.

If the thickness of overlay 0.75 inch and thickness of underlay is also 0.25 inch, these settlers would work fine and will fit in well If the thickness of the both the layers is less than 1 inch, it will not fit in well and will give a bulge. If the thickness of both the layers is more than one inch, use our other product “Rug settlers for thick rugs”.

What is the best place to use these settlers?

Placing three pins at each corner, horizontally vertically and diagonally works well most of the time. Please watch the area that is caught by the steps often and place another settler there.

    Read INSTRUCTIONS- very easy to use!

    Ok, our new rug was being a pill. I kicked under it every time going from the kitchen to the dining table. We got these clamps, actually managed to READ the instructions (!), and installation went perfectly. It's VERY important to use one of the clips to pull UP on the carpet while you shove the OTHER ONE down! We didn't need to use pliers to get it through the throw rug, because ours was a very low pile. I can see how you might have to fight the tines through a thicker wool. But ours went through cleanly, and once you have it vertically stuck in, then go sideways/horizontally, and that carpet is going noooowhere. I like that they are clear, and they don't show up on the carpet. They are a bit ouchy if you step on them with bare feet, so try not to place them exactly where you might trod upon them! Overall very good value/item.

    Works great! (Now a 7month update.)

    Posted by Joan C on 11th Nov 2021

    Thanks to JFK's review I decided to purchase these. We have an 8' runner in a high traffic area that always walked sideways as it was stepped on. Not only that, but it would bunch up as it moved. We would have to reset it at least 4 times a day. I only used 3 of the 6 pins on the upside of the travel/moving direction and the runner has not moved at all. It took a bit of trial and error to get the pins/runner where I wanted because the runner was so long. But if you install them correctly they work great! Just like JFK, I pushed them in all the way to the sub-floor, angled them sideways (in the direction the runner moved), and then pushed till they were flat on the top of the runner. We are very pleased with how well they work. (7 Months later ) The runner is still where is was the day I put the pins in. In the attached pictures you will see I only used 3 pins (as stated before). The Holders are located at the red arrows. The runner used to move in the direction of the yellow arrow. The Holders are installed with the pin points pointing in the direction of the arrows. It has not moved at all. We have even rolled it back (Holders in place) to vacuum under it.

    Works as adverstised

    Not sure why people are giving this product a bad review. My guess is because they DON'T KNOW HOW TO INSTALL THEM. You need strong fingers and basic a understanding of mechanics. They need to be forced through the corner of the rug then locked in. My guess is people fail to lock them down by sliding the pin all the way down to the base of the rug. If you do this correctly it should lay down flat on top of the rug. But this is
