In response to Re: installing a pedestal sink
:For a wall-hung sink yes. But for a pedestal, all of the weight is being born on top of the pedestal. There is no downward leverage on the drywall. It does need the screw to prevent it from pulling away from the wall. My preference is to have 2x6 blocking in the wall to accept lag screws; but in a residential application, butterly bolts through the drywall are quite secure.
