Transition Molding Fit?


I am ready to install the transition molding between the carpet and click lock laminate flooring. The transition molding hits the wall right at the door casing. Should I cut the profile of the casing into the end of the transition molding (the red line) or just an angle (the green line)?

Why the super wide transition?
If your going to use that one I'd mark the casing and cut the case with an oscillating saw so the it can slip in under the case so you do not see the ends of the transition.

that depends. if you can profile it, then do it. if you have doubts, or are not too picky, then cut it straight. if you do cut it straight, it will not look as good. but its a little molding. in a week you will forget about either way you did it.
pick your battle.

I thought I would come back and show everyone what I did. I used a utility knife and a file and just keep playing with it. I'm not sure how long it took but it's good I'm not charging by the hour. Actually, I wish I was getting paid by the hour! lol!
