Do I need an anchor to install hooks on a door?


New to this subreddit so I hope I’m following all of the rules!I want to install new towel hooks on my bathroom door’s rail, which I think is solid wood. The hooks came with plastic anchors that bend when I try to hammer them in, even with a pilot hole.I have two main questions: 1) Do I need specific anchors for wood? 2) Do I need anchors?A little bit about the door: it’s single panel. I think it’s from the 1940’s.I tried looking on google and various subreddits to find an answer but I’m just really confused at this point, any help is appreciated!Edit to add that the door is 1-3/4″ thick. via /r/DIY
