How do I stop my treadmill from slipping?

Can you put too much lubricant on a treadmill?
Does my treadmill need to be overlubricated? You definitely can! Start small and add more as you go. There are a number of issues that can be caused by overlubrication. The excess lube will be flung out from under your belt at high speeds, your carpet, walls, and anything surrounding your machine could become soaked in silicone.
How do I know if my treadmill needs lubricant?
Put your hand under the treadmill belt when it’s loosened. It’s time to lubricate the inner surface if it isn’t covered in oil. If you remove your hand to find oil, there’s no need for lubrication.
