Both I guess but neither one is my favorite.

My favorites are to use sliders under all furniture. I work very hard at getting the carpet dry before I leave, so I don't have to leave things tabbed as much.

I prefer sticky tabs now and it's really all I use anymore.    Although they're expensive, I like them much better and think they're worth it for ease of use......and they're usually still there when you come back a year later, so that makes it easy.

You haven't used ST's?

If not at least get some and try them, decide for yourself......I think they're great!!

Only drawback?......maybe cost?....but as I said, well worth it, I think.

I think DP might be a late bloomer too? laughing

Sticky Tabs....

Pretty much the only tabs we use.

They act like a slider when the carpet is moist.

Nice not to have to fight the back couch leg in a corner....or similar.

The only drawback I've seen with the sticky tabs is having the roll over-heat in a van and become....well, too sticky to unroll.

I still keep some of the blue pads on the truck as well. They aren't as versatile, but they doo give a nice professional look with their presentation.

Like Davey said, they often are still there a year later....even found the blue ones a year later.

If you buy the small octagon shaped sliders at places like Ace Hardware or even on-line (the cheap ones advertised on tv) you can buy dozens of them for about the same price as a roll of sticky tabs.

They are cheap and certainly not the Teflon kind, but they slide better than tabs and are re-useable for about the same price.

Lets not start this $hit again, like the game that douche terry was playing.

If you don't like me or my helpful or "negative" post just block me and ignore them.

just the constant hyper critical $hit gets old,   its classic forum bs...    once youve seen it on a ton of different forums you wonder why there is always a few guys that do it.


you think im a know it all,     but someone asks a question and wants input so I give my answer...    somehow you take it as know it all

they can take what ever info they want, its up to them to decide which advice is best
