Pluck out any loose carpet fibers around the edge of the hole and the surrounding carpet. Place a narrow bead of carpet-seam glue along the perimeter of the cutout. Align the arrow on the patch with the direction of the fibers in the rest of the carpet, and stick the patch down firmly onto the disk. You have 15 minutes to make adjustments before the glue sets.
