Yes, for a ladder oriented on a staircase as shown, using two of these
or make your own from two mending plates and two carriage bolts. A 2'x3' may even be strong enough.

I have two straight ladders, 14' and 9', and so now I have to see if these will fit in the customers staircase.

Nothing can go worng yuor permatiacaly fase.

I'm guessing the bulb is in a fixture or you'd use one of these.
Measure twice, cut once.
Look at the nail, not the hammer. Watch the fence, not the blade.
If you hook your thumb over your belt you won't hit it with the hammer or leave it layin on the saw table.
