An object of this invention is to provide means
for ñrmly securing a rug or carpet to a ñoor with
out the use of nails, tacks or other fastening de
vices which pierce the edges of the floor cover

Another object of this invention is to provide
a floor covering securing means of this kind
which is formed out of resilient tubular material
and which will tend to tighten the licor covering
on the floor as the securing means is being ap
plied.

The marginal edges of the rug I2 and the
padding II extend into the channel I'I and in
order to provide a means whereby the rug I2 may
be firmly and tightly held on the floor, I have
provided an elongated resilient tubular member
