    I"m cheap. I but the medium weight clear plastic JAs sells on the roll. I buy about 6 inches width. I've used it for years on every ruler I have. Just noticed on a couple rulers it's stating to lift but then it's been on there for about 6 years!

    It was recommended to me when I took a course on making a bargello quilt. I really liked how well it worked and had no trouble cutting strips as small as 3/4" wide from my strip sets. I put it on all of my rulers now and wouldn't be without it. I haven't tried the sandpaper dots so I don't know if they are better or worse.

    Haven't tried it but I'm not sure if I really need it. I still have some sore muscles. Ugh!!

    I love it. I have it on all my rulers. For the larger rulers, I don't cover the whole back of the ruler. I just put strips on them.

    I have it on mine and need to put in on a few new ones I just bought. I still use weights on my ruler if I am cutting long strips.

    I have used this product and it works well. I did not think the dots advertised on the same page worked as well.

    I use it on all of my rulers, even the 4" one. It is great. I love it for paper piecing.

    Yes, sandpaper dots stick , so if turning the ruler a lot, Omi-Grid is better.

    I use it, I like it better than the sand paper or rubber dots, but it isn't fantastic. And it is better than nothing. so I guess I like it but don't love it.

    I bought a yard of clear plastic fabric at Hancock's in Atlanta once. I stuck some of that to the bottom of my rulers and they don't slip--it must be similar to what you're describing.

    I have it on all my rulers and it works. I just saw a tip that you can use a dab of rubber cement on the back of the rulers to help from slipping, and just rub it to take it off. It might be worth a try (a lot cheaper). Let me know if someone tries it.

    I also used the invisigrip to cover my camera screen to prevent scratches, had it on there for a couple of years and works great and is still in place.

    [quote=joey]I have it on my rulers, yes it helps, but some times my ruler still slips...maybe I'm pressing too hard quote]

    Me too :) I still like it though - better than the sandpaper dots because there aren't any blocked out markings on the ruler that might hnder any lining up and if I concentrate on applying the right pressure it works great!
