Hi,

I am new to the Forum. I am sure I will get my answers here.

I have a double bowl Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink. It's new but has no manufacturer's name on it. I bought it out of box few years back. I am trying to install it now.

It does not have U channels on the perphery for hold down clamps. Instead it has 1/2" lip all around periphery with 1/4" holes on the lip at almost 1/2" interval. This lip or flange is about 3/4" from the outermost edge. The hold down clamps I received are mismatch. They would not work with it.

Please advise what are my options.I have tried Home Depot, Lowes and couple of specialised Plumbing supply companies too. No body so far been able to help. I may have to use good silicone sealant and simply rest the sink on counter top. Should I not use hold down clips.

Please advise.

Regards​

If it does not have the channel for clamps, it is an undermount sink. No stainless sink I have ever installed was flat enough to be installed without clamps. Undermount sinks also require clamps, but a different type.
