Laminate Transition to bathroom tile too short

Hi there. Newbie here.

I'm in the process of installing laminate flooring (replacing carpet) in my house, and when I came to making the transition to my bathroom, I realized that the bathroom floor is raised waayy higher than the laminate. When I used an end cap transition, you can still see the subfloor underneath the tile. The bathroom floor is 7/8" higher than the laminate.

Any ideas on what I should do here? Clearly I can't glue it to the laminate. And if I just fit a T-mold or end cap and hold it with my hand just to see what it would look like, there's no way it would reach to snap into the track.

Thanks in advance for your responses.

Welcome to the forums! Have you looked at the stackable laminate threshold pieces. You add pieces one at a time in position so it will fit. Aside from that, you could make your own if you own a table saw.
