I use a stiff bladed scraper. Put something under the scraper, like a piece of 1/4" plywood to protect the flooring and tap the scraper with a hammer to loosen it. Then use a flat bar and carefully pry up your transition strip. Pull the nails out from the back to prevent damage to the face of the transition strip.
I didn't see any mention of underlayment... While the current vinyl only a nominal 1/8 "... this military base is put forward 3/4 ", to be installed on the hardwood, (and 3/4 "higher than the adjacent based). Unless with a shoe forming, (leak highly profile of the foundation).
T- molding can be used for the transition of your wood floor within the same room, such as if you want the planks to lie in one direction in part of a room. For these transition , you must choose the flattest type of T- molding possible and then design your transition.
