carpet to carpet

I have rugs and runner rugs on top of my carpet. I am trying to find the best way to stop them from moving all over the place.

I have seen the different products for sale that advertise rug grippers and everything in between. I thought that the people here would already know which is the best system or product to buy and use.

There are just so many different options I did not want to have to buy one then find it did not work then buy another, I think you know what i mean. I was hoping to find an even better way to do this on this forum. Please help if you can, and if I am posting under the wrong heading for this please for give me

I don't know of a product that will work on top of carpeting. Carpet is like a spider turned upside down with legs moving all the time. The carpet grippers are for solid surfaces and work well.

Chandler's correct. You'll have to try different types until you find one that works. I suspect that different carpeting will act different with other carpeting.

Larry, you had to use the spider analogy? I have an unnatural fear of spiders. Now every time I walk on my carpet I'll think of that!

It was the worst thing I could think of. Snakes, no problem. Spiders? Say goodnight!

You do realize that a throw rug on carpet will eventually ruin the carpet?
