    Gary Uhl from American Standard demonstrates the easy steps for installing a new kitchen sink.

    Gary Uhl: Hello, my name is Gary Uhl from American Standard. Today I am going to talk about the easy steps for installing a new kitchen sink. As you can see we have removed an old sink and so our cut out is already in place.

    But before we get started these are tools that you will need, a Phillips head screwdriver and an adjustable wrench.

    Now it's very important before you begin the project that you open the carton and inspect the sink for any damage or dense that occurred in shipping. Begin by evenly placing all the mounting clips around the underside of the sink.

    The easiest way to install a kitchen sink is to mount the faucet and the strainer drain while the sink is out and on top. Now lower the sink into place in the cut out. From the underside, rotate the clip into position and tighten the screws using the Phillips head screwdriver.

    Next, connect the P-trap through the tail piece and the drain outline. Once the faucet is hooked up, turn on the water supplies and check for any leaks.

    Now our project is all complete. Your kitchen sink is a busy place in your home, so a new sink will make any task that much easier.
