To mount a hockey shooting mat and prevent slipping, you can follow these steps:

  1. Clean the Surface: Make sure the floor or surface where you will be placing the shooting mat is clean and free from any dust, debris, or moisture. This will help provide a better grip.
  2. Use Double-Sided Carpet Tape: Cut strips of double-sided carpet tape and place them along the edges and corners of the mat. Make sure to leave some space in the center to allow for any expansion or movement.
  3. Position the Mat: Carefully place the shooting mat on the floor and align it properly with the intended shooting area.
  4. Press and Secure: Once the mat is positioned correctly, carefully press down on the edges and corners where the carpet tape is placed to secure it in place. Apply pressure to ensure a strong bond between the mat and the floor.
  5. Use Non-Slip Rug Grippers: If you want additional grip, you can also apply non-slip rug grippers or mats underneath the shooting mat. These grippers are usually made of rubber and can provide added stability and prevent any sliding.
  6. Check and Reapply: Periodically check the shooting mat's grip to ensure it is still secure and does not slip. If you notice any movement or slippage, reapply the double-sided carpet tape or adjust the rug grippers to improve the grip.


By following these steps, you can effectively mount a hockey shooting mat and prevent slipping, allowing you to practice your shooting skills with stability and confidence.
