Joist hangers for monopitch roof

I have a monopitched roof on my front porch. There is a ledger plate screwed to the wall and the roof timbers lie at a 30 degree angle to the plate. They are skew nailed to the ledger plate. BCO has requested each timber be fitted with a joist hanger - massive overkill, but he's requested it. But I'm not sure if hangers for this exist..... I've tried truss hangers and they won't work because the fixing holes lie below the ledger plate. And normal joist hangers don't really work without being bent to seat the trusses..... due to the angle between the ledger plate and truss. Is there a specific hanger for this situation or is it just a case of bending the hangers as I nail em in to fit the angle?
