Ladder loose at roof : repair

Where the roof ladder attached to the top of the rubber roof was loose. The original wood screws were rusty and the wood was stripped out there. The wood seems solid everywhere else so don't expect much rot. Picked up a stainless steel plate, cut to fit, tapped holes for #6 machine screws and attached to roof with stainless screws. Next will seal with Dicor lap sealant. I'm simply posting in the event others have a similar problem, they could consider a similar repairs

I was reading your problem and you came up with the same solution that popped in my mind. That thing ain't going anywhere now. That ladders grab rails really extend lengthwise over the roof what brand is it.
