Try bolting on ceiling, depending how strong your ceiling is
Would this be good for attaching a clothes line to the house and shed? One used at either end? I was planning to get metal hooks but this may be better? I was also thinking of getting some plastic piping to create sturdy props to hold the line up with the washing.

Good or a bad idea?

Edit: Would a different size be more suitable?

It will work (into brick) but it may be overkill - also the edges may fray the line unless you put some plastic over those too.

I use one for my bike next to the house and after many years there is zero corrosion on the fitting or the recessed bolts.

I think they have ladders for skirting boards on sale.

Personally I would use these

Thanks. I bought some plastic coated washing line from Lidl/Aldi a while ago. I suppose I could wrap strong tape like Gorilla tape over the edges of these anchors. Bought 2 or each size as they could be useful.

I also wonder if they could be used for added safety measure when going up a ladder? If they are fitted high up the wall and a safety rope gets attached in the future for DIY stuff? Things like varnishing 1st floor wooden windows, or DIY outside house wall painting. Thinking of a situation of a ladder possibly giving way. No idea as to how much weight they can take.

Thanks. I'll have a look at those. I only saw your comment after placing a click and collect order for 2 each of the different sized anchors. I may end up using the anchors for something else and use those masonry hooks. I shall have a read on the Toolstation products page.
a 3m braided security cable is also reduced that would go nicely with this...

Looking at your last comment re the ladders, I use the rawlbolt eyes to fasten ladders with ratchet straps when working at height,
Something similar,

Thanks for your input. Useful to know. If I was on my own up a ladder; then either having something secured to me & the wall as a safety measure and/or between the ladder and the wall may be worthwhile. If it works and potentially saves me crashing to ground at speed, it is worth the small investment in karabiners, rope and the wall fixtures when needing to do some DIY stuff. Hiring and putting up a scaffolding tower is likely to be more useful for more major work on the outside of my house.

The comments in this thread have given me things to look into and consider.
as a novice DIYer, a bit confused, if anyone help, please.

I need to secure a heavy metal ladder at the garden brick wall.

Do I need to drill 14 mm or 16 mm for the bolts? And I just get a second hand bosch GSB 18 V, comes with some 10 mm drill bits , do I need to buy something special to drill such holes?

The instructions say 16mm drill bit. you wouldn't go straight in with 16mm, probably best to start smaller.

They're still waiting for stock of square and round holes to arrive. Should be in two weeks on Sunday, but you need to be quick. They just disappear.

Thanks a lot for the tips.
Thanks OP , just what I need, collect in store now and it looks great, would keep me busy to sort it out with my ladder this weekend.

Is it worth going for the 15mm? Or is it the case that if someone has some boltcutters they'll get through both just as easily so may as well go for the cheaper one?
