    found a good manufacturer/supplier for Furniture Tabs



    http://www.a-aexportinc.com/



    they just got their website up so its not perfect yet, but their customer service is extraordinary.



    I use the 5x10 foil tabs. I split them in 1/2 for large furniture legs (makes a 5x5 tab) or split them length wise to put under doors that touch the carpet.

    If you are interested in these, please be aware that these foil tabs are made in different thicknesses so make sure you get a thin one (fold and split much easier) I would recommend .08, .10 or .12 thickness, but they will send samples for you to check out.

    Isn't foil a 80's thing?

    I remember buying butter chips way back from a restaurant wholesaler.
    That must make me old.

    Foil can be wrapped around legs to not fall off when moving furniture.

    Sticky tabs do almost as well.

    Remember using wood blocks?

    I love wood blocks. Customers would save them so they could be reused next time.

    The foil tabs looks so bad when they dry. Feels like littering to leave them in a Customers house. The clear plastic tabs are kind of redundant if you are using stick tabs...which of course I am.

    Just dry stroke, tell client can't clean safely, will eventually ruin Carpet so have it fixed.
