Hi, I read another post on this website from years back which didn't explicitly state what fixings in the end a guy used to successfully fix a toilet roll holder and hook to an interior 1 3/8 hollow bathroom door. From my research before I got M4 x 32 mm molly expansion screws which appear to have an 8mm shaft collar, as well as getting a molly fitter. From further research it appears that these may be unsuitable as a 1 3/8 hollow door typically has only 1/8 thick veneer stiles on either side. Can you please help to confirm if what I have is unsuitable or will work, and if it doesn't work then fixings I need which will give a solid fixing for both my toilet roll holder and hook for towels. Thanks in advance!

How about use a grab adhesive to stick a "piece of timber" (for want of a better word) to the door then screw the loo roll holder to that. Like wise for towels, but you can also buy coat hooks ready mounted on a "piece of timber"

you can get little yellow "hollow door plugs"
or drill the holes pump in" no nails" push the screws into and leave to dry for a couple off days but be prepaired to patch a big hole iff it needs removing

I hung an ironing board from a hollow core door, it was the inside of a cupboard so aesthetics were not a massive concern. Gripfill a batten and used ordinary screws to pull it tight while the glue set. Been up for there for the best part of 10 years and holding strong.
