How do you secure a carpet runner on carpet?

In this manner, can you put a carpet runner over carpet?

A stair runner is something installed to protect either steps or the carpet on your steps. One popular method used to protect carpeted steps is to install a vinyl stair runner over the carpet. If the carpet on the steps is thick, installing a vinyl runner rather than a carpet runner may be your best option.

Secondly, how do you secure a plastic carpet runner? There are a few simple tools available on the market that you can use to keep your plastic runner in place. Purchase rubber strips--rubber on one side, adhesive on the other--that are about 2 inches wide. The strips will probably come in a roll. Make sure you have enough to line the entire length of the runner.
