  • Tool to install steel drop-in sinks

    Looks like a screwdriver, with the slot in the middle, enables you to tighten-untighten the fasteners from under the sink. Whats it called?

    Good question as I own one but I always just called it my "sink-rim tool". I believe they were made by Chicago Specialty. It is like a long 5/16" nut driver (don't recall a slot) with a clip to hold the screw of the sink-clip as you installed it.

                    That one has a 5/16 end and the elkay has a flat screwdriver end that is recessed to help line up the clip
