Rafter hook for patio cover

Hello all,

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 rafter hook 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.
