Vinyl Wall Strength

I'd like to install some shelving and hooks on the vinyl walls of our shed but am uncertain about the actual strength of vinyl. What type of screw, bracket, etc... can/should I use that won't rip out of vinyl?

If you are talking about vinyl siding, you don't hang anything on it. Vinyl siding is strictly a cosmetic feature not structural. You should also not nail or screw through it into studs because the vinyl siding needs to be able to move with temperature changes.
