    I have GE Dishwasher model GLD5500L00BB
    Recently got Granite countertops installed but the person forgot to
    hook the dishwasher under granite countertop
    Hence when the dishwasher shelves are pulled
    outside ..it tends to tip forward /come out.
    How do i hook the dishwasher so it does not tip forward...
    Do I screw it to granite or is it possible to hook this model on side cabinets ?

    I read on internet about granite grabbers(http://www.granitegrabbers.com/)
    are there any isssues using it ? ...does it work as shown

    Thks in advance

    Why not call the granite people and have them fix their oversight/mistake? You don't want to create an problem and have them disavow responsibility because of what you did.

    You cannot fasten it to the granite. Order part #GPF65 to fasten it to the cabinets.

    Just a homeowner here so no stabs at me!

    But...there are several of these "gizmos" out on the market to address this very problem. I know I found 3 or 4 when I was looking. I chose this one because of it's simplicity and cost. $4 plus shipping was well worth it for the ease and convenience..
