HELP, need that wall anchor tool!

A while back someone posted a gun-like tool that is useful to put wall anchors in for mounting things to the Luan. I have searched the forum and can't find it! Anyone know what I am talking about? Regular plastic mollys don't work on this thin stuff... Thanks so much! ~Theresa

Thanks JB2. We were at HD for over an hour looking at all the mollys and most of them had too much shank on them. That luan is so thin. Have you used that particular molly in just the luan and it held? It does look like it might have a short shank on it. The tool I am remember looked like some kind of rivet gun. I wish I could find it! Thanks again.

In m y haste i posted the picture of the tool, but the molly's you need for the 1/8" luan in the rig are what I called hollow door molloy's. A hollow core door is the same make up as the walls in the RW and they worked great. If I find the site we got them from or a picture I'll post it.

PERFECT. Surely they have these at a hardware store. Sure didn't see anything like this at Home Depot, but maybe they are in a different location. Surprising to think they don't have them. Thanks again.
