A great way to secure your pets dish
Are you tired of your pets moving their food dish all over the floor and making a great big mess??
Adhesive backed hook & loop can be used to adhere the dish to the floor.
If the floor is carpet you just stick some of the hook side to the under side of the dish and that will hook into the carpet. Use the Heavy Duty one – for the best result. You can use the adhesive backed loop side to stick to a hardwood floor, lino or tiles. The adhesive can be difficult to remove so you will need to use a very minimum amount of the hook on the floor, or take consideration of its location before placing it on to your flooring.
Another option is to stick with hook & loop a rubber pad to the underside of your pets dish – this will prevent it from sliding on smooth surfaces. This solution can be used on food or water dishes.
The less the dish moves the less the water spills, therefore creates a safer environment for kids and grandparents who may slip on a wet floor.
