I have a stainless steel sink to fit in a laminate worktop. There are 5 fixing clips along the front and back, and 2 clips on each side. The clips hook onto a tag on the sink and a bit at the bottom hinges under the worktop as is tightended to look in place.
The sink has a bit of "spring" in it, and looks like it needs to be pulled down tight onto the worktop.
Now, whoever designed these clips seems to have neglected to realise that since the bowls more or less fill the space under most of the worktop, it is practically impossible to tighten them up along most of the back and one side !
I might *just*
be possible with a very long screwdriver if I take out the shelf and lie upside down under the sink, but you certainly couldn't get a hand in there to hold the clips steady.
So, how important are these clips and how does this usually work ?
I could invent some other type of clip, probably using builder's metal band, and fix to somewhere on the cabinet rather than onto the worktop I suppose.
