Say goodbye to nicks and scratches on your hardwood! Whether you’re moving into a new home or have hardwood floors that you’ve cherished for years, those felt glides for furniture feet don’t always cut it.
There’s a better solution that Amazon shoppers swear by: As Seen On TV BulbHead Ruby Sliders. They’re currently on sale for just $10 for eight (down from $15).
How do they work
This clever little invention is a bit like slippers for the feet of the sofa, chair or TV stand. They are made from silicone which covers the legs of your furniture with a soft felt on its “sole”. They are meant to fit snugly so that the felt glider does its job of protecting your floors.
Amazon customers can’t get enough of these troubleshooters — they’ve given these gadgets more than 14,000 five-star ratings to date — but not all for the same reasons.
Keep floors pristine
The main reason people use furniture feet is to protect hardwood floors. Amazon shoppers rave about how the Ruby Sliders knock it out of the park.
“I no longer have to polish my hardwood floors,” wrote one happy reviewer. “What an easy solution! I just slipped on the sliders and now my furniture glides across our hardwood floors. Not only do they save my plans, but because I live in a second floor apartment, I think my neighbors like the quiet too. No more listening to all that scratching back and forth.
“These are fabulous!!” wrote another five-star fan. “I thought it would be difficult to put them on the rectangular legs of my dining room chairs, but they go on quite easily! They held up well under a lot of weight and slipped in and out several times a day. Great protection for my over 100 year old dining room floor!
“Finally, non-slip chair and furniture pads that actually work well,” shared a satisfied buyer. “I was so tired of changing stick-on chair pads that I thought I’d give Ruby Sliders a try, and I’m so glad I did. These are the best sliders for protecting laminate, wood and vinyl floors. Very happy with these sliders!
No noisy scratches
The noise the chairs make when pulled across the floor is like nails on a chalkboard to some people, but buyers say these sliders take away the irritating sound…and the damage it signals.
“Our kitchen stools always made a loud scraping noise when we slid them around and were difficult for younger grandkids to slide on,” noted one satisfied customer. “The Ruby Sliders solved that problem. Now they don’t make any noise when we slide them and, unlike the old metal runners, they don’t get caught in the joints of our tiled floor”.
Another added: ‘For years, my husband was always concerned about the chairs making so much noise as people slid them off the dining table. He actually told people to “pick up” the chair rather than slide it. He now he says nothing. He doesn’t need it because there is no noise !!! ”
There’s no question that chairs can scratch floors, but floors can fight back by slowing down the slide, and as the name suggests, Ruby Sliders are a great remedy.
“No more cutting the pads to size and trying to keep them attached to the bottom of the chair legs,” wrote one satisfied buyer. “No more scraping the floor when one falls or gets too skinny. The Ruby Sliders allow the chair to move easily and smoothly, and there’s no adhesive to catch crumbs and cat hair at the bottom. I didn’t think they would work because my chair legs are a weird shape, but they are perfect!
“Our kitchen floor is lightly textured,” shared one appreciative customer. “We tried many different adhesive sliders on our chairs and they all rolled under the chair leg, deposited adhesive on the floor, and didn’t slide well at all. Ruby Sliders install in seconds, slide much easier on our floors, and have not failed since they were installed.
