Stair threshhold

I need to add a stair threshhold to bridge the height difference of the floor and stairs. The floor is engineered and I bought a thresh when I bought the floor but wasn't sure what to get so took a punt.
So can I / should I use the purchased threshold strip of get something more suitable?

It looks like I can tack down the white plastic rail and slide the cut down thresh onto it. But to get it to fit I am going to have to remove most of the green fibre on the straight edge and somehow come up with a pretty joint!? The thresh must need to sit on top of the floor but only a small part of it so there is only a small ridge?
The floor has some bounce as I put some thin foam sub layer underneath it so will need to be fixed down but understand it needs to move. If it's easier / neater to buy something else then I will do that? Any suggestions.. Thanks

Agreed. Thanks. I will go to the timber shop and get some stair nosing. Would you just nail it to the subfloor or glue it?

A reducer in that area I would think could potentially be dangerous and cause a slip issue?
Toor roght it would. The nosing must be the same height as the grest of the finished floor
