How to Install a Drop-In Sink

Before beginning your installation, read the entire installation instructions. Observe all local building and safety codes.

The countertop should be pre-cut to the dimensions of the sink prior to installation. We recommend consulting a professional if you are unfamiliar with this type of installation.

TOOLS AND MATERIALS:

Damp Cloth

Level

Silicone Sealant*
 
   STEP 1  
  Lower the sink into the sink cutout on the counter to confirm that the sink will fit properly. The perimeter of the sink rim should connect with the counter while the sink bowl should fit completely inside the counter.

Tip: For easier installation, install the drain and faucet before attaching the sink to the counter.
 
     
 
   STEP 2  
  Remove the sink and run a bead of silicone sealant around the sink cutout to seal the rim against moisture and leaks.  
     
 
   STEP 3  
  Carefully lower the sink back into the cutout and press the sink firmly into the sealant. Make sure that the sink is level and properly aligned.  
     
 
   STEP 4  
  With the sink in place, tighten the mounting clips (if included) on the underside of the sink.  
     
 
   STEP 5  
  Wipe away any excess sealant around the rim of the sink with a damp cloth. Allow the silicone to dry for 24 hours.  
     
 
*for copper sinks, use a neutral cure silicone sealant.
