These anti-fatigue floor mats are very inexpensive, especially when on sale 50% off.
They are very easy to install , they fit very well, easy to clean and they look good.
Of course I bought them for my comfort but more important I also bought them to save my tools.
A Stanley plane or a chisel dropped on the concrete are dead meat, with the mats they have a fair chance to survive.
Highly recommended.

Hi Bert,
Thanks for the review. Those mats are a worthy and practical addition to any shop. Good for protecting the tools and saving the legs and back.
I’m a neat-nik like you so I appreciate your great looking organized shop.

Regards,

Jim

What is the per piece size that Harbor Freight offers? Website shows 25 X 25 inches. Is this the item you purchased?
Thanks

“25 X 25 inches” is correct, 4 pieces in each package

I have a bunch of those and really like them. Some are a couple of years old and still going great. I have gone back over time and bought more.

But boy did mine stink when I first got them. I mean boy howdy. They came wrapped in plastic wrap. I leave them outside for a couple of days to de-gas. Then they are ok.

I would recommend them.

I can attest to the value of these matts … I bought 3 paks of them a couple of years ago, and they really make a difference for my legs and back.

I have them in my shop as well. They are a wonderful on the feet and the chips and dust just sweep off. They have gotten stuck to my shop vac a few times. I recommend them 100%

Routerisstillmyname, I have a principle for a long time: my job is not finished until I put my tools away and I clean my work area.
I do that every day.

I HAD these for about 2 years until our new puppy pee’d on the floor next to them when I wasn’t looking. it ran under the mats and they absorbed it. I tried washing them, febreezing them, everything. After a couple weeks I had to just throw them away. I guess their only real downside is that they are not a closed cell foam so they absorb liquids.

This could be an issue with anyone who’s floor can get damp.
My shop is small so I’m planning on getting one of those Gel Chef mats to replace them.
