    Hello,

    It sounds like you're tackling a common issue with flooring transitions. First off, I understand your frustration with not receiving a confirmation email. It's frustrating when technical issues get in the way of our plans. You might want to reach out to the forum administrators directly to see if they can assist you with your registration.

    Now, onto your flooring transition concern. It's great that you've already obtained a door bar and have some measurements to work with. From your description, it seems like you're on the right track. However, the decision whether to have the carpet tucked into the gripper or leave it hanging off the end depends on a few factors.

    Ideally, you'd want the carpet neatly tucked into the gripper for a clean and secure finish. Leaving it hanging off might not provide the best aesthetic result and could potentially create a tripping hazard. Since the gap in your door bar is 14mm, you might need to make adjustments to ensure a proper fit.

    Trimming a bit off the strip of laminate to accommodate the gripper rod could be a practical solution. This would allow the carpet to sit flush against the gripper, creating a seamless transition between the two flooring materials. Just be sure to measure accurately and make precise cuts to avoid any gaps or unevenness.

    Of course, every flooring project is unique, so it's essential to assess your specific situation carefully. If you're unsure about making modifications to the laminate strip, consulting with a Western Distributors professional carpet fitter or flooring specialist could provide valuable guidance.
