Hi kbrownie,

The basins dont always come with fixing kits.

There are a couple of ways for them to be hung depending on type of basin.

There are flat hook type brakets which you fix to wall and then hang then basin on them.

More traditional brackets which look like shelf brackets angain fix them to the wall then hang the basin off them.

Finally you can get Fischer Basin Fixing Kits which are long bolts that screw into the wall and you then attached the basin through the holes to the bolts using nuts and washers provided. ... 071&m=1228 ... 071&m=1228

Hope this helps.
