Is it sitting flush or is it not flat? If the transition isn't sitting flat then you'd need to cut the back of it w/ a table saw and very carefully rip it down slightly. If the transition sits very loosely in its spot you might need a couple nails as others suggested, but you could always try just siliconing it down in place and see how it looks. If the gap by the tile is too large caulk it afterwards. I've learned that basically you do whatever you gotta do to make it fit/look nice.
It is flush now...after planing and sanding for like 2 hours...I didn't have a table saw.
I'm just going to silicone...put some dumbbells on it and leave it for 2 days. It's now stained and urethaned so I don't want to put any nails in it now, i assume.
I am going to look for flexible grout or matching caulk (whichever is cheaper)
Thanks for the help everyone.
