They should have know and changed the tackstrip out from "C" pin tackstrip to "D" or "J" pin tackstrip.

Or several layers of duct tape over the pins or a strip of sheet vinyl over the pins to raise the carpet so the pins don't stick all the way through.

You can always beat them down with a hammer, but that could make little dimples.
