It's getting a little confusing to follow the different threads of the discussion. I'm sorry for injecting my hollow door scenario into this thread. If someone has an idea for my problem, please PM me. Thanks!

Have you considered a hollow core door anchor? This one is available at Home Depot. The link includes a quick demonstration video.

Thanks. I'll try that, but the specs say it is made for wood doors and the veneer on hollow wood doors seems thicker than the strip of vinyl on this door I've got here.

I would try the expanding wall anchor I linked to, and use the smallest grip, which is something like 0 to 3/16", I think.

Sounds like the beginning of a country western ode.
Studs and drapes and curtain rods...

Wall Anchor Question

My stud finder keeps pointing at me...

For hanging "stuff" that only applies a downward force, like a picture frame, the plastic anchors work fine, but drapes hanging by brackets away from the wall will apply an outward force perpendicular to the anchor, due to the bracket acting as a lever of sorts. For this I would use an anchor that uses compression on the backside of the drywall, as well as expansion in the pilot hole.
