Question Undermount sink, best mounting method?

I am going to be installing an under-mount sink using butcherblock countertops. I see lots of options from rails to brackets and clips. What is the best method?

Sink is here

Was looking at these clips

According to the installation guide..... that sink comes with the mounting clips. They should be ok.

Interesting, I purchased it open box and I don't recall seeing them but I may have missed it. I'll give it a second look. If they're not there maybe the company will supply replacements. Thanks for that info!

Question

Hey PJ.

I was about to mount the sink but the mounts have these little bolt inserts. Because I am using butcherblock, would it be better if I just get some screws and pass on the inserts?

I would. Those inserts look to be for a masonry type countertop .

When buying hardware be very conscience of the thickness of the counter.
You don't want any sharp points poking thru the top.

Right, that was my thoughts too.

The butcher block is 1.5" Should I get 1 1/4 screws? Any specific type of screw I should get??
