Anything rubber should secure it.

Have you tried to place cork under the furniture legs? (05/13/2009)

Have you ever seen the little plastic cups that you place under the feet of couches or chairs? They are very inexpensive (I think I have seen them at the $ store). I also think they will protect your floors from scratching. (05/20/2009)

I don;t know if they are still being made, but there used to be a product made specifically for use under the legs of furniture. They looked like miniature saucers made of a piece of saucer shaped metal with carpet on the bottom side. They don't slide onto the legs, they sit under the legs. You could buy them in various sizes depending on the size of your furniture legs. My mother used them to prevent furniture from sliding on carpet and to keep furniture from damaging linoleum floors. They worked great. You may be able to find them at home improvement and old fashioned "hardware stores".

Can anyone suggest what I can do to stop my furniture from moving when people sit on it? In my family room I have Pergo flooring and of course no rugs and when anyone sits on the furniture it tends to slide around. What can I do to keep my furniture in place? Taking any and all suggestions!

Thanks,
Adele from Blford, New Jersey

You can get little rubber squares to go under the feet of all your furniture. They even sell them at the grocery store, but I'm sure you can find them at any hardware store. (05/21/2007)

Cut up a piece of rubber backed carpet and glue it to the bottom of the legs, rubber side down, works wonders.

I have a wood floor in my living room and when my son flounces on the couch it would hit the wall. What I did is take a board and cut to length to sit behind the feet in the back of the couch and the wall. That stopped it from hitting the wall, works great! Good Luck, Mary (05/26/2007)

Don't use rubber, it can stain the floor. (06/01/2008)
