How to remove/install under mount sink clips

I have a bathroom sink that is mounted from underneath the counter. It is held by four clips, which I was told are called under mount sink clips. I see the bolt from underneath the counter, but I was told that there is a wing nut attached to the bolt, and I can not see or locate the wing nut. Can someone tell me how to locate the wing nut, and/or remove the under mount sink clips, and install new ones?

The photo site said it was not enabled so I could not see the pics.
Most sink clips I have installed were just bolts with a straight screwdriver slot on the end of the bolts. These went through the clip and pushed against the underside of the cabinet. Once loosened, the clip was removable. Good luck.

If this is the type clips you have, make sure the sink, being undermount, does not fall on you as you undo the clips. It may be siliconed in place.

Hello, If your bathroom sink is mounted under a cultured marbel counter top the clips may secured with a bolt that threads into a fitting that is put into the counter top. I would try to gently remove one bolt and clip the sink won't fall. Now for the question for you, are you just changing the clips or the whole sink?
