Ok, this is one of those little inventions that has you smacking your head and asking, “Why didn’t I think of that?”

The Curl Stop is a boomerang-shaped, adhesive-backed plastic product that attaches to the underside of your rugs to keep them from curling up. And anyone who owns rugs knows exactly what I’m talking about.

These things are dirt cheap, too. $17 for a pack of 4.

It’s not just aesthetics we’re talking about here, either. How many of you have tripped over the upturned corner of a rug? That’s what I thought. Ok, you can all put your hands down now.

Kudos to inventors Charlie Bongiovanni and Randy Fleniken for making a serious improvement to homes everywhere.
