Rated 5 out of 5áby Rums Great for the paws
These treads have saved both pup and people from slipping on my steep hardwood stairs. The treads are wide enough for good coverage and they don't move around. They do reposition themselves against the riser however, so if your stairs are very deep, there will be a gap near the front. I didn't need the waterhog feature and I was concerned that the texture would be too stiff/uncomfortable for bare feet. The surface is firm but not harsh.
I would buy these again in a heartbeat. Just need to wait for the next sale because the price adds up buying multiple sets.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Florabunda123 Wonderful product!
I had to write a review for these. LLBean provides the size in the description. So you can measure before ordering to ensure you'll be happy with the end result. All stair treads will move to some extent without using carpet tape underneath them. Various options for carpet tape can be cheaply found at any big box hardware store. That said, these look wonderful on my wood stairs. They've held up well for a year and enable my Golden Retriever/St. Bernard mix to easily navigate our steep slippery stairs that had caused her much grief prior to our installation of these. I can't believe they still look like new. One of my best LLBean purchases.

Very satisfied with my purchase.
Surprised by the negative comments re tread size and slippage.
My tip: position the tread at the back of the stair. That way, people can see the edge of the step. Slippage is at a minimum too. Safety first!
Also, l have cats and any 'kitty accidents' are easily hosed down.
Thank you, llbean.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Shopper2222 Too small and slippery
These mats leave about 3" on each side and 2" in the front, so they don't really cover the steps and protect from water, dirt and scuffing when coming in from outside. They are also slippery and even with additional non-skid material on the back, they are so stiff that they slide off. More than one person has slipped going up or down them. I love the quality of the mat, so I'm going to try the 35" wide runners that you choose the size and then I'll cut them at 10 1/2" each to fit the steps.

áby NovaScotiaLLBeanFan Great, just wish they were bigger
I had previously reviewed these, but it's gone now? Not sure what happened there.
We bought these after checking them out in Freeport. I found them as great quality as the mats we have. They were not near as wide as our steps (ok as treads) or as deep. That's the problem. So like others have noted, they slip and stay at the back of the stair. So the fronts of the steps are exposed.
We debated getting more because I am not super comfortable that they move around. But we like them so much otherwise, that we are going to staple or tack down, and ordered 2 more sets.
Lots of people have complimented us on them. They look really good. They matched up well with the Waterhog mats in our entrance way.

Rated 5 out of 5áby mommycat Excellent product
I recently ordered these for my basement stairs in the dark brown (along with the 6-foot matching runner for the top of the stairs). Beautiful rich colour, awesome quality and they fit our stairs perfectly.
My husband and I love them!

Treads were to too small for what we needed and did not stay in place. Kept sliding around. Wouldn't recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MaryKayB Just what I needed
I bought these stair treads to use in my bath. I have a walk in shower with a ceramic step and I tried to get bath rugs to cover the step, but none fit. These are perfect. I only need two really, because I use one and when that one needs to be cleaned I can put the other in place. They don't slip and side and look great. I got the dark gray as my bathroom is light gray and then blend nicely.
I'm sure I will find some use for the remaining 2 treads. Great buy and a great item.

Rated 5 out of 5áby CdnDogLvr Perfect for what I needed - senior dog
I needed something for senior dogs to gain traction on linoleum stairs. This does the trick. Two 80 lb dogs going up and down all day, these treads stay put; no need for further glue, Velcro etc. Very pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5áby lmbmommy Great idea
I really like these. I put one on the garage stair that goes to the house and the others on my basement stairs. All the stairs are unfinished wood. The treads stay on pretty well but you might have to glue on depending on the surface. The backside of the treads is just like other waterhog mats. The only reason I didnt give 5 stars is because they could have been a couple inches longer and slightly wider as well. I will be keeping them though.
