In response to Re: Installing a Pedastal Sink
The pedestal column bears the majority of the lavatory sink dead weight. The lag screw holes in the back of the sink are to prevent sink "torquing", raising if weight is applied to the leading edge of the sink. With lag screws to a solid wall foundation, the pedestal acts like a fulcrum, when pressure is applied to the front of the sink. Simple mechanics ! Good luck.

: THe bracket that I recieved ith my pedastal sink seems woefully inadequate. The sink does not seem
: to be very well attached. If I push down on, or my four year old hangs on to the front of the sink, the
: back seems to come up. There are two mounting holes on the back of the sink as well. Are these
: mounting holes adequate to hold the sink without breaking it? If I use the mouting holes, do I even
: need the bracket?
: Thanks
