Adding securing eyes to trailer

Any ideas on how to add some fixing eyes to a galvanised trailer? I need to add two to attach my ratchet straps from the transom to the trailer but don't want to drill the trailer?

Without drilling or welding perhaps find an eye nut with the same thread measurement and attach to an existing 'u ' bracket thread.

An easy way is to get long u bolts with two plates and four nuts the plates and nuts clamp to the frame leaving the u end sticking out for lashing to.
