Default Carpet Nosing

How can the carpet nosing, which has come loose, be put back securely? See photo.

Thanks.

The nosing is loose or the carpet is loose in the nosing?

Nosing is loose, but not all the way along its length.

There might be a right way but what I did last weekend was drill a few holes thru the carpet and aluminum into the floor 3/16d, deeper is better and work at clearing the dust. I put a couple tooth picks in each hole and drove a 1 1/2" hanger nail in each one, Used a nail set to drive it down thru the carpet. That size hanger nail is the diameter of a 3" common and I have cut and sharpened a nail in the past. I have done this with a concrete nail too.
Most times these things are put in with short concrete nails and the don't always hold really good.
