Default Kindred SS sink install...

has anyone else had problems with the plastic clips that hold down
these sinks?
This is a slot rather than channel hold-down. The only type like these
are made by Franke.
It's a good sink...but poor design (or re-design).
Thanks for any thoughts.

Make sure the sink is in perfect shape with no bent flanges or corners
before you start. It should fit the hole easily without any clips. Use a
silicone based sealant, or clear tub caulk (water clean-up) and be very
careful not to overtighten the clips. When it comes to el-cheapo clips like
you describe, we are all like Bulwinkle. (Don't know my own strength).
Personally I prefer the old style clips as well, but we all take what we get
these days.
