Try L-hooks to affix fancy house number tiles to vinyl

Q. My wife and I bought four ceramic tiles for our house number during a trip to Italy. We’d like to attach them to our deck which has a vinyl board facing front. I tried Super Glue, Gorilla Glue, and one other, but none will adhere the tile to the vinyl. I have no way of attaching a clamp and am wondering if there is a glue that has instant stickability.
