What are these landscape 'hooks'?

cali41December 17, 2011

I have a house that came with these "hooks" attached to the wall with what appears to be silicone, or some sort of adhesive. I want to use these hooks to build my own trellis on a cinder block wall to have vines grow up the wall and trellis.

Does anyone know what these hooks are called, and where I could get them?

I've asked at the local hardware store (Ace) and Home Depot to no avail. Any help would be appreciated!

cali41, I believe they're known as "vine supports." Nowadays they seem to be clear plastic instead of metal (wouldn't need to be painted). Note that the first of these ads is from Ace Hardware: maybe they were confused by the change in design and materials.

I've also read of people using "vine eyes" (a type of screw eye). Here's a project for making an elaborate wire grid which is attached to screw eyes or hooks:

Are they perhaps from Lee Valley's wall trellis kit?
