  1. 1

    Remove the couch cushions.

  2. 2

    Cut two strips of non-slip, rubber drawer liner to the length of the couch frame where the cushions are situated. Use a drawer liner that comes as a roll for the easiest application.

  3. 3

    Place one strip onto the couch frame near the back of the couch, under the crack between the cushions and the couch back "crack."

  4. 4

    Place the second strip near the front edge of the couch frame, under where the couch cushion front edges will be.

  5. 5

    Replace the couch cushions. The non-slip, rubber grips the couch cushion fabric and keeps the cushions from sliding out of place.

Tips and warnings

  • Glue the rubber strips into place with a glue gun if desired.
  • Sagging couch cushions that slip can be fixed by inserting plywood cut to the width and length of the couch frame where the cushions fit on top of the frame and under the couch cushions. Glue or place the non-slip rubber drawer liner strips under the plywood against the couch frame, and on top of the plywood to keep both the wood and the cushions from slipping.
