Good quality product

In principal this is easy to fit, but if you watch the Franke 'how to do it' video bear in mind that the presenter has the worktop and sink upside down ! I have just done a retrofit (as you would have to if replacing the Sink) and lying on my back did add to the intricacy. Also, as another review stated, be aware if there is a back to the Sink Base Unit. In my case I could not get the Bracket Base right up to the cutout for the Sink.
However, it HAS improved the rigidity tremendously.
Fantastic piece of kit

This tap brace does exactly what it says on the pack, takes every bit of shake out of the tap, feels like it is set in concrete! A brilliant product. I would advise fitting the sink and tap to the worktop together with the brace before fixing the worktop to the cupboards.
Not compatible with Bristan easy fit range of taps

Bought to help prevent flexing of a tall kitchen tap fitted to a stainless steel sink. Unfortunately the clamp is not compatible with Bristan easy fit taps (the clamp compresses the brass tails of the tap base preventing the tap from being pushed on).
Also be aware that if the sink bowl is fitted into a 500mm cabinet, then getting a hand between the bowl and side of the cabinet to tighten the three bolts is very tricky.

This brace is designed to fit a Franke-sized bolt with copper tails. If you have, for example, a Grohe tap with flexi's you will have to open up the bolt hole to take Grohe's fixing & the other parts will not hold the flexi's tightly either. It improves bracing but only after a lot of messing!
