Mollys are good. Toggle bolts, also pictured above are better. My preference, depending on location of the object ot be hung, is to mount a board horzontally to the studs and then hang the hanger on the wood.

This does not work well in the family or living room but works great in the garage.

You could always use a stud finder.
