I just got a used graco metal baby bed and can't figure out how to install the side rail that moves up and down. Please help


These are complictaed and not very safe. Most of the older Graco cribs have been recalled.
In my experience, the metal dropside guides can come loose. This may allow a child to slide down thru the edge of the mattress and the metal dropside. I would not use the crib. It is truley unsafe.
If you insist on using it, drill a hole thru the headboard and footboard and drive a screw thru
into the soft plastic guides on the dropside to make it a stationary side. Please, for your childs sake,
get a new crib. You only get one chance with a child. It's not worth it.

I lost the instructions and my son is ready to be in a toddler bed. I was wondering how do i covert the Graco - Lauren 4-in-1 Convertible Fixed Side Classic Crib into the toddler bed? and also do i need to...


You just take off the rail and Tada! it's a Toddler bed.
Then you can change from elmo sheets to Pokemon sheets and Tada! it's a Day/Bed. I don't know how they get away with advertising it as a 4-in-1 since there is no material difference between the daybed and the toddler bed.

I have a bassett baby bed with no instructions, which way does the rail sit? Bed was manufactured in 1991. There is one keyhole slot on each side of the rail, does keyhole go in the top or in the bottom...


Just as I thought the keyhole slot went in the top screw hole for that section; noting the purpose of the keyhole slot is to put it on the screw and slide it down. I finally got the bed together, might I add without instructions, and it works great.

Instructions for Graco 3 in 1 sleep system crib model 8740


Most if not all of the simplicity brand drop-side cribs have been recalled, including the Graco 8740.

Here is the CPSP link reguarding this crib:
http://www.cpsc.gov/CPSCPUB/PREREL/prhtml09/09260list.html
http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml07/07307.html

According to the CPSP information the company appears to be out of business to some degree and are not providing repair kits.

If you know where you purchased the crib, check to see what their policy is reguarding recalled baby products.

We had purchased ours at walmart almost 8 years ago and were able to return it to another store in a different state for a full refund last summer. They did not need a reciept received, they just needed the manufacturer label on the part that the mattress lies on.

Because ours was older, the customer service clerk did have to work hard to find the crib in their system, but once she did, it was not problem at all.

Toddler conversion on at least some of the cribs is simply to remove the front dropside from the crip (you may want or need to unscreen the dropside tracks to remove the actual side) Then screw the toddler rails to the front side of the crip. There should be pre-drilled holes for the toddler rails, if there are not then you may have the mattress support on backwards.

Drastic Need for 2 Upper Tracks...


if you have the conversion kit for the crib to convert to a toddler bed, you should also have the white caps that go one the end of the guard rails for the toddler bed. I found with mine that they are the same ones as that are on the stationary side of the crib on the back side. if you do not mind having a crib with out a drop side you can remove both tracks and take those pieces and make it a stationary crib by merely following the way the rear side is put together. I have done it with mine as a guide was broken on mine. there should be four caps in the conversion kit that go on the two rails on the front side when you convert to a day bed. I figured out that they are the same as the ones on the back because you do actually use the ones off of the back side when you make it a toddler bed and put all four rail on.
