How glue could you use to keep a threshold down?

Threshold boarders the living room wood floor (keeps popping up) one one side and the tiled kitchen floor on the other.

    You could try liquid nails

    Try using E600 glue. It comes in waterproof. I'd put it on the screws if you have them and reinsert into the holes or on the flat part of the threshold. Or you can try using those plastic things that they use in walls that you use to hold a screw then screw the threshold back down.

    I like Gorilla Glue. Does not take a lot and it does foam up as it is curing so you weight the threshold for a few hours. You would not need to worry about it popping up again.

    Threshold should be nailed down with finish nails, countersink the nails, fill the holes. You can use some silicone caulk before nailing. Anything permanent would make it hard to remove in the future.

    Is the subfloor wood? Could a couple of finishing nails thru the threshold into the hardwood floor side help? Pre-drill holes before nailing, especially if it's oak.

    The living room side is wood. On the kitchen side, it’s tile. It’s only the living room side that buckled (due to A/C problem), that occurred right after buying house.
