    Default walking on smooth edge

    My last post was about carpet meets tiles over a walkway/doorway
    You blokes have said to use angle and a smooth edge. Sounds good and its the finish im after, but...

    Ive just walked barefoot round the edge of the carpet already in my house. The smoothedge creaks a bit---> bear in mind its a slab floor so i guess masonry nails dont work that great and the smoothedge has movement
    But also the pins in the smooth edge stick into my feet through the carpet quite easily.

    is all this unavoidable if i want the neater finish and not use a T peice overlay?

    thanks

    any way to get the smoothedge to stay firmer than using masonry nails? screws and plugs perhaps?

    I'd recommend drill and plug and a touch of liquid nails mate, especially if you're not an expert on belting concrete nails down full swing an inch from your beloved tiles!

    Also just give your s/edge a light rub/tap with your clean hammer when finished
