Hello, we are installing a Kohler Langlade 33" cast iron double basin under mount sink. One hot water faucet in the middle and one hot water faucet on the far left. 46" cabinets.

We are looking for advice for a support system. Our fabricator sugested the Sink Setter. Would anyone care to share their experience and advice? Thanks!

    Sink Setters are junk. They rust, fail, and leak. The HUSH may work and you may need two kits to get the wire length you need, but the Pete's is the way to go with a sink that heavy.

    This info came from Pete. https://sinkmount.com/product/petes-sink-mount/

    Two ways to do this.

    1 - count the support like "normal" but a little bit low to allow for the addition of two pieces of 1/4" (or 3/16") flat stock that you can get from someplace like home depot. These pieces would go on top of the regular supports, from front to back, and the sink sits on these. The foam strip in the kit would go on top of the regular supports (blue parts) so that the 1/4" material sits on the foam, then the foam also goes on top of the 1/4" material so there is no metal to metal contact for any parts. Sorry for the odd angle of how this looks below. In reality everything would be square.


    2 - This is probably more straightforward. Based on the pictures it looks like there is enough room to have the sink sit directly on the supports, likely with the "spacers" in the support channel for the pegs to sit on. If there is enough room for the rear supports to clear the drain holes with the pegs sticking down into the support rail then you would not need the spacers.

    Hope all that makes sense. Either way will work and be very robust. One of the issues with the Kohler brackets that sit on top of the cabinet frame is that you cannot remove the sink without removing the countertop. The other potential issue is the plastic tips of the adjustment screws that the rim of the sink sits on crack and break off then there is a gap in support.

    Happy to answer any other questions to help out.

    "One of the issues with the Kohler brackets that sit on top of the cabinet frame is that you cannot remove the sink without removing the countertop."


    Sure you can, Pete. You tap the cabinet front off and Rotozip the cabinet sides as needed. It all goes right back together. No countertop removal needed.
