With Brett Sheehan not expected to be available until April, Eaton has been brought in to provide competition to Alby Mathewson and Mick Snowden.
Eaton previously made 27 appearances in two seasons for the Hurricanes, while he has played ITM Cup rugby for Hawke's Bay.
The Force have endured a rough start to the new season, losing 30-23 to the Melbourne Rebels in the opening round before suffering a shock defeat to Super Rugby new boys the Southern Kings.
They now face away games against the Bulls and the Reds before welcoming the Cheetahs to Perth.
