Mounting screws

I am installing a mini blind in my 179. Should I use the plastic anchors or just the screws to attach the brackets

anchors and short screws. Drill a small pilot hole first, then check to see if there are any wires etc where you will be putting screw. Once you ae comfortable there is nothing there, use wall anchors and short screws.

Thanks for the info. I am not sure how thick the panel is in my rpod wall. I would guess one eighth thick. Would a miniature Molly bolt or the plastic anchor with screw work better

It's 1/8" as you suspected. Unless it's something absurdly heavy there's no reason to not just use a small screw. Your valences and the mini blind brackets that used to be in the older Pods before the Nightshades are just screwed right into the wall directly.
