Anchoring stall mats to floor

I've got 6x4, 3/4in rubber mats from Tractor Supply Co. How have you guys put them into your box? Glue, metal anchors of somekind, nothing at all?

Nothing at all. I made sure they were against the wall and just put them up against one another. Done deal.

Re: Anchoring stall mats to floor

Nothing at all, but don't make the mistake I did and put them over carpet. This was a typical shortcut that turned out to be anything but short. The mats keep moving and pushing up, so we cut them and cut them. Every week a cut needed to be made!

Finally, had a mat moving wod and torn out the old carpet. It was so thin I thought no problem leaving it down. Big mistake!

Things are much better now and not one cut or upturned mat since.

Life is good!

Put all mats together against the wall and/or build a frame around it. Smooth out the edges so people dont' trip to easy. It workds mats don't move at all. Fits perfect. Seen it in several affiliates

Fair enough. Just a Giants fan who's found him self moved South. At least it's not the Cowboys, eh?
