We can't figure it out either! It seemed to come with undermount pieces (its not an undermount sink) and some blurry IKEA-style instructions. Been working on this 3 hours!
Anybody...???

How to use the clip attachments for Frank drop in sink,no instructions or pics for clips


Just weight the sink with water after running a bead of caulk under the lip of the sink. Finish the bead of caulk before it skins over and then drain the sink after 24 hours. I personally wouldn't worry about using the clips, the caulk will hold the sink securely, and if you ever need to remove it, allow for a much easier removal.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

We bought a Franke top mount sink and go system from Lowes. It is being installed in a standard formica countertop. The clips that came with the unit will not stay on for anything when you attempt to...


Is the Foot print of the replacement maybe sink smaller than the foot print of the orginal sink that was replaced? It sounds like it is. Make the hole smaller by cutting a plywood strip to be placed on two sides of the sink hole. Long side at back of sink and short side. (plywood needs to be marine type because of the high mosture of the sink area and painted)
I went to their web site; they have posted a buyer beware notice of bad contractors. They may be able to help.

There were no instructions to install my undermount sink. What can I do?


Most under mount sinks are installed before the counter tops go in, they are cut to fit and glued in with 2 part epoxys and secured with screws and clamps. Replacing one in an existing counter top is not an easy job. If you have a granite top, forget it. If it is wood and formica, ok, you can pull the splash off and remove the top, but it is a lot of work. You would be better off with a new top, or a new sink, rim type. Now if you are building a new house and this is new construction, then you can do it no problem. And depending on what kind of top it is, it needs to be screwed and glued. The guy here that did granite for us, would drill out little holes, about 1/4 inch dia, and 1/2 deep for these little machine inserts to go into. Epoxy them in, then clamp the sink down or up to the top with machine screws, about 10/24, 1/2 inch long. Through a clamp, and epoxy the top on, sometimes he used clear silicone. depended on the top. If it was wood, you would just screw into the wood with 1/2 inch pan heads. Hope this helps.

We cannot get the mounting clips to stay on


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.

Pegasus Push Button Vessel Sink Drain with overflow


Put plumbers putty around the flange that will be in contact with the sink. When you put it into the hole, try to line up the overflow as good as possible. The nut that goes onto the bottom (tailpiece) has a rubber gasket that will go between the nut & the sink. Adding some plumbers putty here won't hurt. After all is secure, just remove the putty that squeezed out from tightening.

Installing a drop-in sink


The stone installer told you to use silicone,
what makes you think that you know more than he does about his product.
IF you go use lockdown screws, you will put tension on a thin granite slab at 4 or 6 points around the perimeter of a hole.
stone breaks under very small tensions
do as instructed and silicone the sink in place,
or void any warranty and buy the counter top again when you break it
formica is plastic on a chipboard substrate -not stone

not perhaps the answer you want to hear,
