securing the dinghy

When pulling up to the swim platform in the dinghy there is no convenient place on my boat*to tie up to untill the dinghy is hoisted. The*closest cleats on my boat are through the hawse pipes just under the caprail. Has anyone mounted cleats or maybe a handrail*on their swim platform to secure the dinghy while at anchor. *Maybe bolted through the transom a couple of feet above the swim platform?
These would be small 6" or so cleats only for securing the dinghy not to hold the boat to a dock. Any comments or suggestions welcome.
