Nailing T-Molding Between Laminate Floors


I am installing some Armstrong laminate flooring and am going to use unfinished T moldings since their product is difficult to get. Since the molding I bought (hardwood) does not come with a track, is there any problem in nailing it down? I was going to shoot a few brads down the middle of the molding on to the floor. I am open to other ideas other than buying the Armstrong moldings. Thanks.

You can also use construction adhesive (Liquid Nails, etc) on the T-molding if you don't want to nail/patch the brads.

For mine I used a bead of liquid nails and 3 18G finish nails--left, center, right... minimal patching required but I feel like that gives you the best attachment between the two types of fastening.

I did this in (3) places... (1) is really high traffic... they all seem to be doing just fine 2+ years out.

I like liquid nails and heavy weight on the T strip overnight while glue dries.
I have no problem with using a couple brads when needed, on a concrete slab will do no good.
