Do you use the Coretek transitions when butting up to carpet? If so, how do you go about it? There's such a minuscule edge to attach to the floor.

I use their baby thresholds, used to use dura-bond but apparently you can't buy the stuff in New York anymore 🙄
Now I use contact cement to adhere them.
The transition is about the same height as the tackless. It's a fine line between cutting just enough or cutting the carpet short.

I was told that the Powerhold equivalent is just Durabond re-Branded. Powerhiolod sealer is most likely outlawed in NY too ......just like Super Big Gulps.
Got 4 or 5 transitions to install on a completed Coretec job 30 minutes out of town tomorrow. I won't know what I need to do until I see the job. I assume the installer didn't figure the transitions as he worked, so whatever happens is now in my tender loving hands. I guess the Coretec will need to be trimmed back in a couple of places to allow the transitions to fit, so
I'll buy a new blade for my Fein tool before I head out.
I see the T's have tracks. I know the baby doesn't. I've used Chemrex on them before. I have sanded the base so the Chemrex can adhere. Usually I'm on a job more than a day, so the set time hasn't been a problem.
If it works out, I'll use tack strip and Z-bar. That might not work tho, because this is a water damage resto job. Not sure if the carpet is long enough to do what I want it to do.
Hope I don't need 2 inch flat bar, 'cause that's not gonna fly with this customer.

On transitions over a wood substrate i use some construction adhesive and staples. On concrete same thing but spot hot glue with pl premium.
If i have to remove the lip on a vinyl plank rotating locking mechanism i use Mannington seam sealer MMS 20. Just smell it and you know its great stuff.

Staples? Where do you get your wood grain paint to cover staples?
I'm talking about fastening/adhereing the baby threshold, not the transitions with the snap in trims.
