    Easy to install and the finish matched the flooring very close. My aunt was very happy with the end results after I installed the material. Was a great value as well. Note to any one buying take your time cutting. If you miss a cut it can be unforgiving. Don't rush cutting the material. I install enough flooring and will be using this product again. I am sure they have other colors of material for future projects.

    It was a nice match to my laminate and because it's metal it's sturdy. You can just score it and cut it to size.

    Could not get holes equally spaced when trimmed to fit. Existing holes were to far from the ends after trimming. I had to drill and countersink new holes. Also, when painting the door jamb, I used the "blue" painters tape to mask the piece. When I removed the tape the "oak" pattern came off the strip. We just decided to live with it instead of ripping it up and taking it back

    Great product
    needed to bridge a new lino tile floor to a very high pile carpet, padding under carpet is 3/4" thick and carpet almost as thick. Cut padding back approx 1" and fastened strip down, made a perfect transition, Very pleased with the results and ease of ordering and pick up of product at our Hagerstown, Md. Store.

    Easy to Install
    We installed new flooring in the bathroom of our rental home. The flooring was also purchased from Home Depot and really turned out beautiful. The bathroom floor matches up to hardwood floors and this was perfect for connecting the two without leaving any gaps. Easy to install.

    A simple alternative
    I needed transition pieces to accommodate the half-inch difference in height between my slate foyer and my living room. I would have liked specially-milled hardwood, but I felt it might exceed my skill level. I settled for the Metaldecor carpet trim. The slate / hardwood border was angled (creating a 'v') so I simply mitered two pieces with a hacksaw and fit them together, then tacked them down. It looks fine. I think it's a good alternative for those who want a quick and easy -- and less expensive than hardwood -- fix. The photographically-reproduced 'woodgrain' effect was good enough for this application. In this case I found its appearance less obtrusive than a brass piece would have been.

    OK purchase
    The item serves its purpose, but I would have preferred screws instead of nails.

    Nice Carpet Trim!
    I like the color of this trim, since it matches wood floors, and the wood look vinyl tile that I have in my kitchen. Trims use to come in gold or silver only, but I am glad that they made this color trim. Very nice!

    Transition
    I used this to transition from a new Allure Ultra kitchen floor to the existing ceramic tile in the dining room. It was a perfect match. Installed in minutes.

      Close color match to wood
      The strip was easy to cut to the desired length and covered the small gap between the carpet and the wood floor. The 'twist' nails hold the strip securely.

      Dents easily.
      I bought this for a basement installation over cement. I had to drill into the cement and put wood dowels into the cement in order to attach this trim. It was difficult to line up the dowels perfectly with the predrilled holes. A couple of the nails did not go in straight and dented the trim. I should have used wood trim instead.

      easy to install
      Used as a transition between our original wood flooring in the hallway to a new vinyl tile in the kitchen which was installed over old vinyl flooring and therefore was about a quarter of an inch higher. Cut to size easily, and installed quickly.
