Rafter hook for patio cover
I recently put in a new aluminum patio cover to the back porch.
I'm wanting to put some hanger hooks on it but I am very reluctant to drill into it.
I had thought I could use a [URL="http://www.amazon.com/National-N222-521-RED-Rafter-Hook/dp/B000BPR0G6/ref=wl_itt_dp?ie=UTF8&coliid=I1J91QOLFBUJAX&colid=2ZO7VJPC1LGAJ"]rafter hook[/URL] as the perfect answer, since I could easily take things down once winter starts. The problem is that the beam that it would be hooking to is 2", and rafter hooks only seem to come in 1 1/2" size.
Has anyone run into this kind of issue and what did you do to work around it?
I am currently thinking I will need to contact a metal shop to have it done as a custom job, but I worry that the price would be very high for such a small job (I only need about 10 hooks total.)
Thanks for any advice you can give.
