We have several edges of carpet which are coming up throughout the
house. They're all right at the seams where the carpet and linoleum meet.
I was thinking a wider metal edging between the carpet and linoleum would
hold the carpet down, but honestly I don't know.
The carpet is on concrete, not wood, so I have no idea how else to hold
down the carpet. This is my first house with a concrete slab; if it was
just wood, I'd have it covered. Got any ideas? We need to keep this
carpet for another couple years at least, so maintenance is important.

is a transition between the two floorings.
Tackless strips are wood and nailed into the concrete. Check and/or
