Plastic Sliders

Anyone have a web site where I can order the Plastic Sliders that you use on the floor of your MH so the slide runners don't scratch your wood/laminate flooring?

Google "Slide Out Slickers". There are several online RV stores that sell them. I have a set and the do a good job of preventing black marks on my carpeting.

Not sure how well they would work on a laminated floor, as the slickers have tiny barbs on the bottom that dig into carpeting, to prevent them from sliding in/out with the slide out. But then again they also have anti-slip foam strips, so it might work if you shave off the little barbs.

Got another name to try? When I google "slide out stickers," all I get are decals, adhesive stickers, how to make photo stickers, how to remove stickers, etc. I. too, have thought about replacing carpet with laminate flooring, but am concerned about scratches.

Aha. These old eyes saw what I thought was there instead what was actually written. Slide out slickers gives me the search results I was looking for. Thanks.

We used the flexible cutting boards from WM to protect our floor under the slide corners. They worked but were kinda small.

Sounds like you had better luck than me. I tried those before buying the Slickers, but the plastic skids along the bottom of the slide out just pushed them out of the way. The Slickers stay in place. Pricey for a strip of plastic, but well made and should last indefinitely.

Have you looked at Lowes or Home depot.

They have all sorts of slides.

We used clear plastic runners from Home Depot over our carpet. You have to get the edge of runner under the sliding surface first, then the fingers on underside of runner dug into carpet to hold it in place as the sliding surface passed over it. Worked well, cost about $1.50 per foot for 30 in. wide runner.
