a platform being configured to be positioned on a support surface, said ladder being removably coupled to said platform such that said platform inhibits said ladder from tipping, wherein said platform comprises a panel having a first portion forming an angle with a second portion, said second portion having a first edge, said first edge being spaced from said first portion, said panel having a first end, a second end, a top surface and a bottom surface, said panel being elongated between said first end and said second end;
a rod having a primary end and a secondary end, said rod being threaded adjacent to each of said primary end and said secondary end, said rod being slidable into a selected one of said rungs;
a pair of retainers, each of said retainers having a leg and a foot, said foot having a hole extending therethrough such that said foot forms a closed loop, said leg having a sleeve extending away from said foot, said sleeve of each of said retainers threadably engaging an associated one of said primary end and said secondary end when said rod is extended through said selected rung;
a pair of saddles, each of said saddles being slidably positioned on said top surface corresponding to said second portion, each of said saddles having a front wall and a pair of lateral walls, said lateral walls corresponding to each of said saddles being spaced apart from each other to define a space in said corresponding saddle;
a first strap being coupled to said top surface corresponding to said second portion, said first strap being positioned between said saddles, said first strap engaging one of said rungs when said ladder is positioned in said saddles such that said ladder is removably retained on said platform;
a pair of second straps, each of said second straps being coupled to an associated one of said first end and said second end, each of said second straps having a distal end with respect to said panel, said distal end of each of said straps having a hook being coupled to said distal end, said hook engaging said closed loop of said foot of an associated one of said retainers such that said ladder is removably coupled to said panel.
