The specification discloses a non-skid carpet protector which has numerous stiff bristles placed on the underside thereof to prevent movement upon the entry and existing of occupants of a motor vehicle. Two modifications of the invention are disclosed by Applicant, i.e. a non-skid carpet protector which covers only a limited area of the horizontal part of the motor vehicle passenger compartment floor, near the vehicle's brake and accelerator, and a non-skid carpet protector which covers a substantial portion of both the horizontal and vertically inclined portion of the floor of the motor vehicle passenger compartment. The non-skid carpet protector is specifically designed so that it may be easily secured to the floor carpet within a motor vehicle, by the application of a vertical pressure on top of said non-skid carpet protector, thus causing the stiff bristles to effectively engage in a frictional relationship the underlying carpet to be protected.
