Carpets & Wheelchairs

Pinkpoppy Community member Posts: 18 Connected
Hi Everyone
I could really do with some advice about keeping carpets in place when using an electric wheelchair. I've only been using the wheelchair about 3 months and I'm finding that the carpet between in my hallway and the bathroom won't stay under the metal grip thingy. When I reversed out of the bathroom doorway it pulls up the carpet away from the grip leaving it unsecured and unsafe. The carpet is quite old but I don't want to replace it just yet as I'm thinking about moving in the near future. I'm sure I can't be the only one in this situation so I'll be grateful for any suggestions any of you may have.
Thank you !
