There are lots of different knee pads, kneeling pads, and knee dollies out there. When working on a hard floor, anything is better than that bare floor-bone contact.
I highly recommend CLC’s foam kneeling pad, and own a couple of their medium-sized pads.
It’s comfortable to use, convenient to carry, and easy to put away.
This CLC (Custom Leathercraft) kneeling pad is made with 1-inch-thick foam padding. It’s shock-absorbing, and its NBR (nitrile butadiene rubber) construction is oil-resistant.
Sure, you could use a gym mat, kid’s floor mat, yoga mat, or other such pads, but this is thicker and more convenient.
The medium-size pads measure 21″ x 14″, and I find this to be a comfortable size for personal use. There’s enough space for shifting knee placement, and it’s still small enough to be highly portable.
If you think this is something you can use, it’s definitely worth the investment.
Knee pads might be more convenient if you move around frequently, but if you’re going to be mostly stationary or moving small distances, this kneeling pad and others like it won’t restrict your joint motion in the same way.
If you’re still in doubt, look at the reviews – all 4 sizes cumulatively have 859 ratings with 91% 5-star and 6% 4-star ratings for a total score of 4.9 out of 5.
Everyone loves these kneeling pads, and you might too.
Or, do you have a brand or style you prefer better?
