Installing a kitchen sink - no mounting clips

Posted by jgarzasr (My Page) on

I am installing a wet bar in my basement - so I picked up a small - pretty nice used sink from habitat for humanity restore. However the mounting clips that were welded on the sides of it - are broke off. Any ideas of another way to pull this sink in tight on the counter to seal the edges? with out having any mounting clips? Thanks!

I've used silicon adhesive caulk when access to the clips was blocked. Put a bead of caulk around the edge of the counter opening, set the sink and put 10 to 20 pounds of weight in the sink until the caulk has time to cure. Clean up any 'squeeze-out' while it's still wet.

Polyurethane adhesive sealant would adhere better especially where water is present but you might not ever be able to remove the sink.
