How to Install an Undermount Sink

 

TOOLS AND MATERIALS:

Pencil

Soft Cloth

Mineral Spirits

Silicone Sealant*
 
   STEP 1  
     
  Carefully turn the countertop over so that it rests upside down on a stable, cushioned surface.  
     
 
   STEP 2  
     
  Position the undermount sink over the sink cutout on the counter. Make sure the sink is centered with the faucet hole and is evenly spaced between the bolt holes.  
     
 
   STEP 3  
     
  Draw an outline of the sink on the countertop, once the ideal position is determined.  
     
 
   STEP 4  
     
  Remove the sink from the countertop. Apply a generous bead of silicone to the perimeter of the sink’s rim. (Copper sinks use a Neutral Cure Silicone Sealant)  
     
 
   STEP 5  
     
  Carefully place the sink upside down on the countertop, positioning it within the outline.  
     
 
   STEP 6  
     
  Attach the sink clips (if included) by placing the long end of the bracket flat against the sink lip. Screw the wing bolts through the brackets and bolt holes and tighten snugly.  
     
 
   STEP 7  
     
  Carefully turn the countertop and attached sink over.  
     
 
   STEP 8  
     
  Remove any excess silicone with a cloth moistened with water or mineral spirits. Let silicone dry according to manufacturer’s instructions.  
     
 
 
*Copper sinks use a Neutral Cure Silicone Sealant.
