I have heard of under-mount sinks falling out too!
The under-mount sink mounting method shown in the video using metal clips is a good method. The silicone bead is actually only to prevent leaks, and is not the method of support.

Under-mount sinks just glued is total nonsense IMO.

I think it's nonsense too! It just happens a lot.

If I may say so myself. What a feces covered builder. The under mount sinks I have seen have been directly secured to the counter top with epoxy. Also the counter top guys install that sink at there business. Granite top guys usually add support brackets.


Honestly I would start saving for a complete new top. Doubtful that you will remove that in a useable fashion.

This time use a higher quality sink no more porcelain on steel type.
