Screw hooks

Does anyone make decent-looking weather resistant screw-in hooks for hanging plants from a porch rafter? All I can find is the little white plastic-coated ones. The brass corrode in short order

you can purchase some coating made for plier or screwdriver at your local hd store in the electrical dept.
just buy a standard hook and soak it in the solution and let it dry them attach your hook to the rafter

All the hooks in the garden department of the big boxes are designed to go outside. Some are static, and some swivel, allowing you to turn your plant without unhooking it.

I like the idea about coating basic hooks in plastic. The outdoor hooks I see at Home Depot/Lowe's are usually ornate, ugly, and made to look like gold filagree or something or fake antique.
