Rug tripping hazard
I live in a home with awful carpet. Replacing or removing the carpet is not an option. To cover high-traffic areas, I have laid runners and area rugs that cause a tripping hazard unless tacked down. Because I will need to remove the runners when I vacate, I used common 4D bright finish 1.5” nails (Fas-n-Tite brand), but these work themselves up / out of the plywood underlayment in some places – likely where there are no joists. Is there a better nail, or a screw that can be used for this purpose and later removed?
