Needing Exterior Toggle Bolt

I need to attach a bracket to sheet metal with a toggle-type bolt. This is an outside project and I'm not finding any toggle bolts that will work outside. Can someone point me to something that may work.

Thanks,
Sam

What makes you think a steel toggle bolt won't work outside? What is the application? I'd assume the toggle would be protected from the weather and the head could always be painted.

Snaptoggle by Toggler is a good option. Stainless steel or brass I think with plastic extending out from the wall. I could send you a box....

Thanks for the quick responses. To answer marksr, I was just thinking the zinc coated toggle bolts that you find everywhere were for indoors. Home Depot's site labels them as "interior". I'll look up the other options. Only the screw head would be exposed and get wet and I could slap a little silicone on the heads. You will not be able to see the heads.
