         constraints.anchor = GridBagConstraints.WEST;

before you call

         sinDataPanel.add(sinCheckBox, constraints);

constraints.anchor = GridBagConstraints.LINE_START

would be right one to be used at this occasion.  As the labels are going to be in the line.

java help of BorderLayout.LINE_START:

The component goes at the beginning of the line direction for the layout.
***For Western, left-to-right and top-to-bottom orientations, this is equivalent to WEST.***
