Carpet tape, available at your local hardware or home store. It's just heavy duty double sided tape and yes, it is called carpet tape.

Stan,
As a Velorex dealer, I have always loosened the two front seat bolts and slipped the carpet edge under the seat brackets about 1", then tightened the seat back down over the carpet.
This has worked great for the last couple of decades on all of my Velorex installations.

Did mine similar to Lonnie. Ran the carpet all the way back into the trunk and cut slits for the seat brackets. Then bolted it all down. Doesn't move around and can be removed easily by taking out the seat.
