You just put them on top of the carpet where the corners of the slides run. I made some from one of those carpet protectors they sell at a office supply store and cut them to about 4 inches wide and they stay on the carpet because of the little fingers they have on the reverse side they work real well.

That's what I'm thinking. For $55.00 you can make several to fit your needs from one carpet protector.

Good idea will do that since I have 2 slide outs would be great especially when the slide is in for a long time in the winter.

If your going to make your own using the office floor make sure you put making tape over the cut and use a band saw to cut it. Cutting with a circular saw may cause it to break and a jigsaw may do this also. The tape helps to minimize the burr that will form from the heat of the saw blade.

After we removed the carpet, we got 2 very light marks on the linoleum and we just cut 2 rubber backed carpet runners to lay in the floor for the slide to rest on in the travel position.
