I'm looking for advice from guys that are familiar with modern sink fittings. I have done a few kitchens over the years and my previous experience a stainless sink would always have little clips underneath to pull it down snugly to the benchtop. Yesterday I brought a large modern sink (admittedly Chinese) that I thought looked good but once I got it home and started measuring up I noticed it doesn't have anything to hold it down. It is sold as both undermount and overmount, it was in the showroom displayed overmounted so I didn't really even give it much thought. I have rung the shop and they just say to "glue it in". Although they say they will refund me if I'm not happy, I'm curious if this is the way it is commonly done nowadays or if this sink is a bad design. My main concern is that usually your flanges are never perfectly flat so the old clamp system used to pull it all back into shape, but that wouldn't be easy with just adhesive. Secondly I'm concerned if I decide that I don't like this system and return the sink then go to another supplier and then find all modern sinks are done this way and its just my inexperience...

 

 

A bad photo I had in my phone of the display sink:

I will answer my own question here...

 

I looked & asked around some more and found all good quality top mount sinks still have the tabs or brackets underneath but many of the cheaper (Chinese?) ones don't.  I took it back for a refund and have ordered a sink from Mercer.
