Has it been recalled?


Doesn't look like your model was recalled, but you could always contact the manufacturer to confirm since the baby's safety is your priority. Below is an article I found with the affected serial numbers.
Kolcraft bassinets recalled due to fall dangers Consumer Reports News: May 09, 2012 04:38 PM

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a safety recall for certain bassinet models made by Kolcraft Enterprises Inc., of Chicago, Ill. The Kolcraft Tender Vibes and Light Vibes bassinets have locking latches which may fail and cause the bassinets to fall, possibly injuring a child inside.
The CPSC and Kolcraft have received seven reports of latches detaching from the bassinet frame. In one of those incidents, one infant received a bruised cheek when the bassinet fell from its metal frame and landed sideways on the floor with the infant inside.
Consumer Reports experts note in our buying guide to bassinets that for now, there are no federal guidelines for those pieces of infant furniture other than safety standards for such items as small parts and rough edges. So, a baby crib-which must meet federal safety standards-is the safest place for a sleepy infant say our experts. (For more information, see Crib alternatives to avoid and Safe-sleeping tips in Consumer Reports' Babies & kidssection.)
This current recall involves about 46,000 Kolcraft bassinets which were sold at mass market and independent juvenile specialty stores nationwide and online from July 2008 through May 2012. The recalled Kolcraft Tender Vibes bassinets include model numbers KB021-ARC, KB022-VER and KB039-CMR1 and the Kolcraft Light Vibes bassinet recall is limited to model number KB043-BNT1. (Model numbers are printed on a label located on the side of one of the metal frame legs of Kolcraft bassinets.)

Tips a safety crib must have:
  • No missing, loose, broken, or improperly-installed screws, brackets, or other hardware on the crib or the mattress support.
  • No much more than 2 3/8 inches between crib slats so a baby's physique cannot fit via the slats.
  • A firm, snug-fitting mattress so a infant cannot get trapped between the mattress and also the side of the crib.
  • No corner posts more than 1/16 of an inch above the finish panels (unless they are more than 16 inches high for a canopy) so a baby can't catch clothing and strangle.
  • No cutout areas on the headboard or foot board so a baby's head cannot get trapped.
  • A mattress assistance that doesn't effortlessly pull apart from the corner posts so a infant can't get trapped in between mattress and crib.
  • No cracked or peeling paint to stop lead poisoning.
  • No splinters or rough edges.

i washed my daughters graco car seat and now i havent a clue of how to put it back together and i need re assemble it fast please help


Proper installation of a car seat is imperative to protectan infant. Accidents do happen and assuring that the instructions forinstallation of the Graco Infant Restraint/Carrier are followed will increasethe chances of preventing injury or death as a result of an accident. Graco carseats are a popular choice among parents due the availability of products atcommon retail stores, affordability and user-friendly baby gear.Graco Car SeatInstallation
Step 1
Plan to secure the infant seat facing the rear inthe middle of the back seat. If a center position is not available, positionthe seat directly behind the driver's side seat. For safety reasons, therestraint should not be placed in a position where there is an air bag. Ensurethat the proper vehicle lap belt system is in place; manually adjusted lapbelts, automatic locking retractor lap belts and lap/shoulder belts withlocking latch plates are all considered safe for use with the Graco InfantCarrier/Restraint.Step 2
Remove the carrier from the Graco car seat baseby squeezing the lever at the rear of the restraint and lifting the seat up.Place the base in the vehicle facing the rear. Thread the vehicle shoulder andlap belts through openings at the end of the base without twisting the belts.Secure the belts by placing plastic tongue over the belts. Tighten the vehiclebelts by pushing down on the base and pulling out any slack.Step 3Install locking clip to secure shoulder and lapbelt together just above the seat belt buckle. Connect the two belts with thelocking clip. Buckle the lap belt system and tighten by pulling out any slack.Ensure that car seat base is secure by pulling and pushing on it; the baseshould not move sideways, forward or backward.Step 4
Place the Graco carrier in the base. Push down onthe restraint until it clicks and locks into the base. Set the infant in therestraint for travel and place harness straps over the baby's shoulders. Clickthe chest place together over the sternum and lock the buckles into placebetween the legs.Tipsand Warnings
  • Contact local police departments, hospitals and fire departments to inquire about child car seat safety checks
  • Graco Infant Restraint/Carrier will not protect against serious injury or death if not installed properly. Always read the Graco owner's manual that comes with product prior to attempting installation and travel with an infant.
