What’s in the box?
Rug Cover: You received a Rug Cover with your rug design on the top and a gray fabric backing.
Rug Pad pieces: With your 275x365 Rug System, you may have received a Rug Pad made up of two smaller pieces for easier assembly. These pieces have our unique ClingEffect™ technology on the top and a rubbery bottom that will grip the floor.
How to Assemble: Large Rugs (275x365)
Before setting up your Rug System, ensure the area you intend to lay your rug on is clean, dry, and free of any dirt or other debris. Cleaning the surface before setup will maximize the performance of the non-slip Rug Pads. To eliminate potential bumps and bubbles during assembly, in some cases, it may be best to allow for your Rug Cover and Rug Pad to sit out for a day to relax and flatten after shipment.
To set up your rug, you may need an extra pair of hands - so grab a friend!
Step 1: Prep the Rug Cover
Set aside the Rug Pad pieces as you prepare the Rug Cover.
Lay out the Rug Cover with the grey fabric side touching the floor.
Then, roll up the Rug Cover, design side in, starting from the longer edge (see diagram A. below).
Once you’ve reached the end, fold the rolled-up Rug Cover in half and set it aside as you prep the Rug Pad pieces (see diagram B. below)
Step 2: Prep the Rug Pad
A. Place your rolled-up Rug Pad pieces side by side with the ends close together and unroll them next to each other (see diagram below). Then flip each Rug Pad piece so the rubbery side is down.
B. Line up the Rug Pad pieces with the longer edges touching and push them as close together as possible, ensuring there is no gap between them.
Step 3: Attach the Rug Cover to the Rug Pad
A. Start along one of the longer sides of the Rug Pad (i.e., the solid sides without the Rug Pad seam).
B. Align the rolled-and-folded Rug Cover with one Rug Pad corner, leaving about a 25-38 mm overhang on each side.
C. Then, unfold the Rug Cover and align the adjacent corner.
Note: Do not tuck the Rug Pad into the corners of the Rug Cover. These corners were designed to weigh the rug down and ensure the Rug Cover lays flat on your floor.
Step 4: Unroll the Rug Cover
A. Once both corners are aligned, slowly roll out the Rug Cover over the rest of the Rug Pad pieces, smoothing it down as you go (see diagram below).
B. Just before you roll the Rug Cover over the place where the Rug Pad pieces meet, make sure the two pieces are pushed together tightly and there is no gap.
Step 5: Smooth the Rug Cover
To smooth out wrinkles, roll up the Rug Cover diagonally from the corner and gently unroll.
Voila—your Ruggable rug is ready for action!
A Few Reminders
Our Rug Cover is designed to be bigger than your Rug Pad. This is to make sure that the Rug Pad stays out of sight once assembled.
Do not tuck the Rug Pad into the silicone corners underneath the Rug Cover. These are designed to weigh down the corners of the Rug Cover so it lays flat on the floor.
If the corners appear lifted, simply pull the Rug Cover up, give a little tug, then smooth the Cover back down.
Please Note: For an effortless assembly experience, our 275x365 rug system now comes with a Rug Pad made up of two separate pieces. Although this video features a one-piece Rug Pad, your recent 275x365 rug system purchase may have come with a two-piece Rug Pad.
If you received your Rug Pad in two pieces, you should only leave an overhang of about 25-38 mm rather than the 3-4 inches shown in the video.
