How do I prevent the rubber pads on my TV stand from sticking?

by Gayla

Over time, the rubber pads from my flat screen TV stand have adhered to the media console it sits on. I believe I've gotten good advice about how to release the stand, but I'm leery of placing it (and the TV) on the new media shelves I just bought. Should I replace the pads with felt or something else? I'm afraid felt pads might cause it to slip if someone bumped into it, but I don't want to ruin the surface of my new shelving either. Can someone suggest a type of pad that would create friction but not break down and adhere to my shelves?
