Laminate flooring question - T-mould

During my flooring install I am using a t-moulding between the lino and my current laminate install. The moulding says to leave half an inch between floors and this moulding appears to use a compression fit within that half an inch to hold it down.

Do I still need to leave an expansion gap under the molding for the laminate floor? and if so, what is the best way to secure the moulding to the floor?

Thanks in advance!

Laminate T molding comes with a metal strip that is attached to the floor in the gap you mentioned. I usually leave a 3/4" gap for that expansion you refer to. Once the metal strip is in place, the Tmolding will fit in it.....one time. It cannot be removed without destroying the holding capability.

That sucks I already bought a one piece T-moulding that is just wood. I guess that will have to go back to the store.
