I have spent several hours trying to solve the same problem with a Franke Granite double basin sink. The clips for this Franke sink appear to be a piece of engineering garbage, and the instructions are utterly useless - A huge piece of paper with a template, and tiny pictures that look like they were drawn by a kindergartner with a crayon. The instructions for using the clips --oh there are none - other than a blurry picture in which the clips could fit inside this period (.). Lots of other people appear to have the same issue. I like the Franke sink, but without proper mounting hardware, this franke sink is no better than the poorly made clips, and the Franke Sink horrible instructions that it came with.

I agree that the Franke clips are useless. I dropped the sink into an existing and poorly cut hole in my counter top. I then attached wooden blocks under the sink on all four sides between the sink and the cabinet walls on either side. The blocks, which are only 4 or 5 inches long, are screwed into the cabinet walls and prevent the sink from moving in any direction. No other attachment is necessary.

The door spring came off of hamilton beach 31100


The door of the Hamilton Beach Model 03008 or similar toaster oven does not stay closed when the door return spring or the hook it connects to breaks. The repair is very simple and takes just a few minutes!
The door spring is about 1 inch long and connects to a small clip on the inside of the left side panel of the unit. To see the small clip and the door spring, you simply remove the left side panel of the toaster oven which is done by removing just one screw.
The mounting clip on the side panel for the door return spring is located about half way up the side panel near its front edge.
The other end of the spring (its bottom end) connects to a metal hook. If the spring is not connected on its bottom end then the wire hook is broken. This is a simple repair that only requires a few inches of metal wire.
The other end of the metal hook (its bottom end) is connected to the bottom of the door hinge where it inserts into a small hole in the left side mounting hinge of the door.
When the steel hook breaks on either end then the spring cannot function, so the door does not stay closed.
To fix this problem, you simply get a piece of steel wire that is about 1/16 inch thick and a few inches long.
Bend the wire to make a hook at one end that the spring will connect to.
Then insert the other end of the wire into the small hole on the left side mounting hinge of the door. Then bend the wire on the inside of the hole to make a U or hook so the wire stays mounted in the hole of the door hinge.
Then adjust the position of the bend on the other end of the metal wire so the spring will have good tension when it is attached to the hook and to the clip on the side panel.
To do this you make the U shaped bend on this end of the wire to be about 1/2 inch from the end of the open end of the spring when the top end of the spring is attached to the mounting clip on the side panel.
To attach the spring to the wire hook, first remove the spring from the mounting clip. Then hook the spring onto the hook (bend) you made at the top end of the wire, then just stretch the spring to connect it to the mounting clip. The door will now stay closed.

Need to stabilize machine and have granite countertops


Ask a local granite fabrication shop to get you some dishwasher mounting clips. They look like a perforated disc of metal with a small nut brazed to one side. They come with a short screw that attaches through your dishwasher mounting tabs. Place your dishwasher where you want it relative to the cabinets and pick a hole in the mounting tabs that won't leave the clip protruding and attach the clip to the chosen hole. Use masking tape on the top of your dishwasher door, wipe the bottom of the granite and the top of the clip with acetone, then use a gel-type two part epoxy from your local hardware store to attach the clip to the granite. Use enough to make the epoxy push through the perforations in the clip as this is how the epoxy grips the clip. Push the clip to the bottom of the granite and close the dishwasher door, using a wood shim or two between the top of the door and the mounting tab/clip to push the clip tight to the granite. Pull the shims out once the epoxy has cured (check the instructions on the epoxy).

How to change a front headlight


First, open your car hood, then right behind the headlight unit, you will notice two clips per side, they are long and straight with a hooked end. Using the hooked end, just lift the clip up and move it away from the headlight, the left (when facing the front) clip will be between the headlight and the battery cover.
After taking out the clips, the headlight will be loose from the car. Look behind the headlight and you will see the wires running into the actual light to the bulb. What you would do is twist the light out (I believe counter clockwise) and the bulb will come out with its mount. Then unclip the bulb from the mount. Then just put on the new bulb and make sure the sides clip into the mount.
Then carefully put the mount and bulb back into the headlight unit and then twist it in clockwise, you will feel it go in properly, if not lined up properly, it will not be smooth and won't stay in place.
Then put the headlight unit back into place, and secure it back to the car with the clips you removed.
Note: Make sure not to touch the actual glass of the new bulbs as this will make them last a shorter period of time. Good luck

How to remove the base from the monitor


For monitor or TV bases that have four clips, I found if two people each take two opposite clips, and use thumbs to push in the clips, we can pop the base off fairly easily. It is impossible with one person, since thumb and forefinger can't exert sufficient pressure on the clips.
