William Armes 190 x 110 cm Rug Stop
William Armes 190 x 110 cm Rug Stop
Price: £21.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Good solution to long standing problem, 10 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for a large rug sitting on our living room carpet which gets a lot of traffic and used to move about considerably. It has now virtually stopped and just requires a minimum of adjustment from time to time. Also used some offcuts from this and a previous one we bought to reduce slippage of a smaller rug on a laminate surface; that works well too. Pleased all round.

4.0 out of 5 stars Virtually 100% successful, 10 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the first product that I've tried that does the job virtually spot on for two rugs sitting on a carpet. It was easily cut to size. Other products tried over the years have been useless with the rugs still slowly walking over the carpet over a period of days. With this the movement is reduced to about a quarter of an inch in a week which I find acceptable and it's very easy to just put back in place from time to time; otherwise I would have given it 5 stars. I think there's something odd about the backing on our rugs anyway.

Classic pocket knife. I've had one for years. They come in handy in so many ways. Always in my pocket; just have to remember to pack it in hold luggage when flying.

Works well. Very satisfying to be able to continue using existing car charger for old style Nokia phone socket with new Nokia phone. Cheap and effective. It's nice not to have to just throw the old charger in the bin and buy new.


Einhell Folding Truck 90kg Capacity

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong and robust., 8 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My wife is a keep fit instructor and uses this to carry exercise weights in and out of class. Her maximum load at any one time is 30kg but past experience with inferior models has shown that it is prudent to over specify in this application. If you look at my other reviews you will see one of the trolleys I'm talking about; it looks good by photo and description and is rated up to 45kg but I would counsel against buying it. This 90kg trolley on the other hand is strong, robust, folds up and down very easily, is relatively lightweight and competitively priced.

1.0 out of 5 stars No good for 30kg loads., 25 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My wife is a keep fit instructor and has been using this for the past 3 weeks to carry exercise weights in and out of class. Her maximum weight carried at any one time was 30kg but the plastic wheels could not take the load and fractured around the metal axle. The stated capacity is 45kg but I would say it's really no good for loads of more than 25kg.

By the way, returning this for refund was easy, good choice of local drop-off points, nearest BP garage was best for me; all credit to Amazon for smooth and efficient system. Bought a really good alternative product as a replacement; see my review if you want a firm recommendation.
