Hurrah! We got our beautiful rug hung back up! The old hanger had lost it's grip (I can relate to that!) and a customer came in one night with an order blank from a company out of Carlsbad California called "Way Out West", offering the "Rug Hugger". We called them, and a very nice woman walked me through the process, including having me weigh our rug to make sure their device would hold it. It came yesterday, and presto! our wall hanging/sound buffer is back in place.
FYI: Way Out West, P.O. 130421, Carlsbad, CA -2012-0421 Phone: 800-326-8479. Thanks!
