    Our house has a non Uk standard kitchen installation, including a kitchen sink where the sink hole won't take a standard plug.

    Instead I'm looking for a wide sink stopper - one of those rubber things with the lips that exceed the sunk hole width - that's 7, 8 or 9 cm in diameter.

    Any suggestions where I can find something like this?

    I doubt that a plug like that would be water tight.....could you consider a basket waste fitting?

    Sure, if you can look at screwfix 85413. These fit normal sinks with a large outlet and connect to 40mm waste fittings.

    They are exact sizes to fit, so what size is required?

    The sink hole is 5.5 cm across, and we currently have a 6cm stopper that is too narrow to do the job.
