Nailing tackless strip concrete
It only takes a minute to sign up. I would like to have carpet installed in the bedroom of my basement apartment which now has a concrete floor. I don't trust the carpet guy with this part because he suggested cutting corners and just gluing it and I don't trust the glue for this application. I was thinking to drill small holes in the strip, use it as stencil to project spots in the concrete, then drill holes with my jackhammer, set lead anchors and then attach the strip with screws into the anchors. That way the strip is as firm as it would be against an OSB subfloor. But it also seems a bit labor intensive.

The ability to rent carpet installation tools such as power stretchers and knee kickers helps handy people install carpeting with a greater chance of success than simply tacking it around the edges of the room. One of the most common requirements for padded carpeting is tackless strips. Unlike the name implies, tackless strips have at least two rows of tacks, which grip the edges of carpet from underneath. Older carpet installations used tacks to nail down the carpet, which garnered tackless strips their name. Standard strips are for wooden subfloors; concrete uses a similar strip, but with special nails.
