As far as the carpet, use some plumber's glue (comes with a brush on the lid, inside the bottle) and dab it along the edges enough to 'sear' the edges. Once its dry, it's a done deal. You're going to cover that anyway with the small piece of ply board...
Excellent idea! Cloaked that's two threads you've helped me out, thanks!
