Topic tags/keywords: question

I am trying to make a simple wall shelf with wood brackets. A long time ago I did this and I had a router bit that would bore a small hole then make a hidden slot. You would put the screw in the wall and drop the bracket with this slot over the screw to hang the shelf on the wall. I havent been able to find this bit locally. And I dont even know what to call it to order one online. I have found keyhole bits, but I think they are too big. The hole is 3/8”. Or am I thinking wrong.
