We received this corner wall-mount sink today with the hardware kit.
Wondering what the purpose is for the mounting holes on only the one back side.
We are trying to figure out how to wall mount it.
Any help or ideas for wall mounting in a corner would be appreciated. Thank you.
btw: we have contacted the company and hope to get 65C9546C-C657-4234-AD5C-E6CEE60F5D7D.png6C17B0FF-C174-401B-ABE3-F9667E876BEF.png65C9546C-C657-4234-AD5C-E6CEE60F5D7D.pngB6C472AE-5050-49FD-A3B6-1DC1FC8ACEAE.pngE2AFFB86-55CA-4459-AE76-9917699C1C3F.pnga reply from them soon.

You are missing something as far as hardware or bracket. Some sinks sit on arms that are in brackets set in the wall. Some sinks lag into backing in the wall and then sit on a bracket. Look at other wall mount pedestal sinks and see what hardware they have

It basically says on that screenshot with the bolts. Unless you have a concrete wall, they have to open up the wall, get backing in there (2x4, or 2x6 nailed between the studs), then a bracket is bolted to that after the wall is refinished. CT18 covered the rest.

Thank you for your replies. We still think it’s odd there are only mounting holes (for bolts) on one side and not the other. Has anyone seen this before on a wall-mount corner sink?
And is there a particular wall bracket that you have in mind that we should get? Thank you!

What we’re trying to do.....1948 house had cool corner sink in small bathroom. A few months ago, our property management team said sink leak could not be fixed and replaced the old sink with the little sink in pic. We got rid of prop mgmt after that, as they even said the old sink was disposed of. Now we’re trying to put another larger sink in its place for a number of reasons....we ordered this one we are talking about through mangus online. I also found an old sink on Craigslist that is a tiny bit smaller than the magnus one we ordered, but we have no idea how to mount it. Thanks for all your ideas and help.

You can see the 4 black spots with the 2 holes in them were the brackets for your sink that was removed. Also the craigslist sink you can see the recess area on the sides of the sink where it would sit on the bracket. Maybe that sink you have with the holes was meant to sit on a base

I would definitely add a wood support strip or a long piece of 3/4 or one inch angle iron under the side with no mounting bolts, as well as gluing it on with silicone.
People tend to lean on a sink, and it can sag with time, or even crack and totally fail with too much weight on it.

Thank you Jeff, we had not considered that & will do that.
