I have a Childline crib that I purchased in 1979 for my son and now I would like to reassemble it and use it for my granddaughter. I do not have a model #. It just says "Childline" on the side. Can anyone help me?
Re: Assembly manual for a Childline crib from 1979
I just got a used Childline crib and do have the brackets. I think mine is a much later model than 1979, but perhaps the brackets have not changed. Here is a picture of the ones I have (on the left); even the rest of the crib (though not much of it is shown) looks the same as mine:
I also did a Google search for "hook type mattress spring" and found some places that sold the brackets, though some looked like they might be a slightly different shape so be careful.

crib design has not change much through-out the years, except for the fire-safe matresses and the side bars are a little closer together. Other than that it's not much different. I hardly doubt you will find parts for a crib that old but you may find parts for others that are compatible.

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 receipt 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.
