I know, I am in the wrong group here, but who can help?
I have a hardwood floor in my den. I have a plastic chair mat with no
teeth on the bottom so it won't damage my floor. But, on top of the
wood floor, I have an area rug.
The chair mat slides all over the place because part of it sits on a
wood floor, and part of it sits on a rug.
I have tried double-back tape, but no luck.
Can anyone help?

same as teeth.
Is it sliding, or just moving a little each time you walk on, or use,
the mat? If it is moving a little, it could be that the mat is
"walking" on the carpet. "Walking" means the mat is following the
direction of the nap (loops pointing in a certain direction) of the

rugs and carpet without damage to floor or rug/carpet. ^_^
