If you leave a long enough tail, you can also try stitching the tail into the previous stitches.

That's what I do & I haven't had a problem yet...

Most books I've read on the subject suggest leaving a long tail, and using a bodkin to pull it back under the stitches.

I haven't tried it yet though. I have yet to turn my serger on.

not a clue, I use the serge ("overcast") setting on my Brother and it doesn't unravel.

you can leave a long tail and use a steel crochet hook to pull it under the stitches to hold it down.
