comment How can I attach structure via oval holes in panel struts in a panel van?
If you are attaching free hanging bins to the wall the hardware must support the weight vertically. If the frame sits on the floor it will be holding the weight and the wall anchors merely hold it in place.

comment What is the correct procedure to turn a 10“ rough-in toilet drain into a 12” rough-in drain when the drain goes through a slab-on-grade?
I am leaving this as a comment because I can't find a link. I saw an offset pedestal that mounted to the floor under the toilet. The toilet mounted to the pedestal. It did raise the toilet several inches though.
