Self-adhesive rubber bumpers to use as feet, stops, and spacers

As a teenager, I got a box of these from my job that was going out of business. I don’t use them every day, but fifteen years later I’m still finding uses for these all the time. essentially, they’re just non-skid little rubber feet.

Just a few of the things I’ve used them on:

  • I put them on the back of picture frames so they don’t scuff the wall.
  • I replaced the useless feet on my laptop – now it gets better circulation underneath and doesn’t heat up so much.
  • One of our chairs kept scratching the wall when people would sit down…a few well placed rubber bumpers on the back of the chair fixed this.
  • And just the other day I put some feet on a wooden door stop that kept sliding all over the hard floor.
