Well, get ready to say good-bye to all that worry with Ruby Flexible Furniture Sliders. Right now, they're $20 for a set of 24 on QVC (was $31). That's 36% off and amounts to less than a $1 a pop.

How they work

This clever little invention is kind of like a set of slippers for the feet of your couch, chair or TV stand. They're made of silicone that caps the legs of your furniture, and have a soft felt pad on their "soles." Silicone being stretchy, they'll fit snugly and keep the felt firmly in place while it protects your floors. They even come in three colors — black, brown and clear — so you can match them to your furniture. Curious how they work? See Ruby Sliders in action here.

Oh, and if you'd rather not pay that $20 all at once, go ahead and opt for three EasyPay installments of just about $7 each instead. Plus, if you're a first-time QVC shopper, you can grab an extra $10 off your first $25 purchase with code SURPRISE.

Keep floors pristine

Shoppers rave about how the Ruby Sliders knock it out of the park.

"These are fantastic furniture sliders. I got the clear, as I had different colored furniture to put them on. They stretch to fit different size chair legs and protect my hardwood floors wonderfully," said a five-star reviewer. "In fact, I have ordered additional sliders. Love, love, love!"

"I have been using the old school stick-on protectors for years, and they always come off. My husband and I put these on our kitchen chairs and barstools in 10 minutes — and no more worry about my hardwood floors," wrote a happy customer. "We purchased the clear and could not be happier...an amazing problem solver."

No noisy scraping

The noise chairs make when pulled around a floor can be hair-raising (especially to the person who owns the floor in question), but shoppers say these sliders take away the irritating sound...and the damage it signals.

“I've had mine for several months and I love them. I live in an upstairs apartment and my downstairs neighbors really appreciate them. No more 'fingernails on a chalkboard' noise," noted a satisfied shopper.

Another added: "I thought I'd try these to replace the ones I currently had on my kitchen chairs, and they work well. The bottoms of my chairs are rectangular in shape and they now glide across the tile without making a sound. So far, so good!"

Easier sliding

There’s no question that chairs can scratch floors, but floors can attack back by slowing down the slide — and as the name suggests, the Ruby Sliders are an excellent remedy.

"Our chair's legs are thick and the slides went on with no problems. The best thing is that I can now just pull the chair out like butter. Awesome," a grateful customer shared.

"These gliders work great with my wooden table and chairs. My furniture slides right across my hardwood floor. I no longer have to remind people to pick up the chairs to not scratch the floors. Thank you for a fantastic product," another five-star reviewer stated.

With Ruby Sliders, your chairs and tables glide across the floor. Choose from black, brown or clear.
