  1. 1

    Place the leg of a chair on top of a rubber non-slip mat. Use a pen to trace the shape of the foot of the chair leg onto the mat. Repeat for each leg of the chair.

  2. 2

    Lay the non-slip mat over a piece of plywood. Use the tip of a utility knife to cut out each of the shapes from the non-slip mat.

  3. 3

    Lay a sheet of newspaper on the floor. Place the chair on top of the newspaper. Apply a thin layer of superglue to the face of the non-slip pieces and place on the bottom of each chair leg. Repeat for each chair leg. Allow to dry for 2 hours or according to the glue manufacturer’s recommendations.
