Drill bit size?

What drill bit size should be used for installing screw eyes 1-3/8 (34, 9 mm)? I've never used a drill in my life and I have zero idea what I'm doing.

If in wood, you want to drill a hole somewhat smaller than the largeest diameter of the thread (this is called the major diameter). If in drywall, use a plastic anchor...the typical drill size for plastic anchors is 3/16" diameter. If still not sure, take the item you're going to install (a hook?) to a hardware store. Ask what drill size you should use for the type of mat'l you're mounting the item into...or...is a plastic anchor the way to go...
