Doesn't stay in place as advertised
July 16, 2014
I gave this product the benefit of the doubt for a full year. Thinking, surely I didn't prep it correctly before applying the tape provided, or the four other times I re-applied tape. Still failed to stay on the floor and is now in the trash.
After a year with it and purchasing multiple industrial strength 3M tapes at $20/roll, it was clear the parking mat is the problem (not the prep). There seems to be a waxy/oily substance that is part of the plastic of the product. Squeezing or bending the plastic seems to release it. Not in large amounts, but just enough.
Even after thorough prep with rubbing alcohol and light sanding to encourage better adhesion, it would quickly disconnect from the tape. Yet the tape was nearly impossible to get off my painted floor. The product they sent me was also permanently bent/curved opposite the floor, but that really didn't affect the adhesion of the tape.
All I can say is, you will get frustrated trying to keep this connected to your floor.
