    same problem

    That happens with mine too. Well, it did. I don't have it any more. I called Fisher Price and even though it was made by Simplicity, FP will still help you out. At this point they do not plan a recall but hopefully they will since it is not safe. I thought the answer when I called made it sound like a common problem and that was when I did some internet searching to find out and it is. I reported it to CPSC as did others and I urge you to also. Anyway, what FP will do if you call is have you send the fabric panels and they will pay the shipping on that then they will send you a check for $99.99. I just sent in my panels last week, so have not received the check.

    I have the same problem. My baby is only 10 months and we can no longer use it. I'm afraid to use it with a smaller baby for fear that an older child will be curious and pull on the side and it will collapse. I can't belive that it hasn't been recalled.

    there are replacement part available on ebay but mine broke with so little weight i can't imagine that just replacing the same part will resolve the issue.

    I noticed the same problem with the rails collapsing and called Simplicity on 4/08. I was told it had to be locked a certain way and it wasn't what was written in the instructions included in the pack n play. They said they were not required to notify anyone.

    I have a Graco as well and usually use that one but used the Rainforest one yesterday for my 1 year old to nap in. I was in the bedroom napping too when I heard a big thump and cry. I look over and a side collapsed and my daughter was ON THE FLOOR OUTSIDE of the pack n play. Whether she fell out of it while leaning on it or climbed on it after it collapsed I don't know. DO NOT USE THIS PACK AND PLAY!!!

Side rails will not lock in place


I would suggest returning this item if possible or perhaps just purchasing a new one. This company has now had the best luck with the sides of their playards locking in place.There was a recall issued for similar models.
RECALL
One child died and three others were injured because the sides did not properly lock in to place.
Although your product is not specifically listed and this does not technically "solve" your issue I felt it worthy of note here.

Cant lock the end rails of the porta-cot, the two side ones lock in fine but the end ones just fold back down. Its a Jeep Sahara Limited XT playland.


Before you lock the bottom of the playard, you need to pull all the way up on the two side rails, they will form a slight arch, and the button will click into place. Then push down on the bottom rails.

I cannnot get the gRECO PACK N play sides to stay up


I have the same one, its quite difficult.
It needs to click & lock in on both sides of the release buttons. Sometimes having somebody put their foot in the bottom of the play yard while you pull up on the release button will help lock it in.
You also need to have the shorter sides lock in first before trying to lock the longer sides in.

I purchased an Avalon play yard and it did not come with instructions. I cannot get the sides of the playpen to stay in the locked position. What am I doing wrong?


I have the same play yard and it is a funny one to figure out but I believe that you lock the sides first then push the bottom down to lock it in place hope this helps

I need a part for a crib


Please read this, I'm not sure if yours is included because looks like you listed it as 'ultra deluxe' but better to be safe than sorry...

About 1 Million Simplicity Cribs Recalled Due To Failures Resulting in Infant Deaths NOTE: Repair Kits that immobilize the drop-side are now available
ALSO NOTE: Consumers who have participated or have yet to respond to Simplicity’s June 2007 recall of Nursery-in-a-Box cribs are strongly urged to also participate in this recall. AND ADDITIONALLY: A subsequent recall involving Simplicity drop side cribs has been issued. WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is announcing today a voluntary recall with Simplicity Inc., of Reading, Pa., of about 1 million cribs. The drop-side can detach from the crib, which can create a dangerous gap and lead to the entrapment and suffocation of infants. CPSC is aware of two deaths in Simplicity manufactured cribs with older style hardware, including a 9-month-old child and a 6-month-old child, where the drop-side was installed upside down. CPSC is also aware of seven infant entrapments and 55 incidents in these cribs. CPSC is also investigating the death of a 1-year-old child in a Simplicity crib with newer style hardware, in which the drop-side was installed upside down. CPSC is warning parents and caregivers to check all Simplicity cribs to make sure the drop-side is installed right side up. The drop-side failures result from both the hardware and crib design, which allow consumers to unintentionally install the drop-side upside down. This, in turn, can weaken the hardware and cause the drop-side to detach from the crib. When the drop-side detaches, it creates a gap in which infants can become entrapped. CPSC is also aware of two incidents that occurred when the drop-side was correctly installed with older style hardware, though the upside down installation greatly increases the risk of failure. The recalled Simplicity crib models include: Aspen 3 in 1, Aspen 4 in 1, Nursery-in-a-Box, Crib N Changer Combo, Chelsea and Pooh 4 in 1. The recall also involves the following Simplicity cribs that used the Graco logo: Aspen 3 in 1, Ultra 3 in 1, Ultra 4 in1, Ultra 5 in 1, Whitney and the Trio. The recalled cribs have one of the following model numbers, which can be found on the envelope attached to the mattress support and on the label attached to the headboard: 4600, 4605, 4705, 5000, 8000, 8324, 8800, 8740, 8910, 8994, 8050, 8750, 8760, and 8996. The cribs, which were made in China, were sold in department stores, children’s stores and mass merchandisers nationwide from January 1998 through May 2007 for between $100 and $300. As an immediate precaution, consumers should check to see if the drop-side is installed right side up. To do this, check to see that the slightly rounded rail with the decorative groove is installed at the top and the plain rail is on the bottom. Next, consumers should make sure the drop-side is securely attached to the tracks in all four corners.

Please be safe.

How do the side rails of a eddie bauer play yard stay up?


I have this the Eddie Bauer Pack & Play too. The directions says it doesn't matter which sides you pull up first but it does... you have to first pull up the 2 short sides, then you can pull up the long sides and push the button on the bottom to get the whole thing secure.

Hope this helps!

Side rail


honest answer: take super heavy duty zip ties and tie the drop side in place in like 8 places to be sure it will stay put.

i did it with my crib to be safe when simplicity recalled theirs for rail issues, i would start with trying to get a hold of a person st simplicity for children your crib may be one of the ones recalled for rail failure issues then they would send you parts free

they should also be able to help you find out if the crib is theirs or not too

you should under the crib for a sticker with numbers, usually the model number / serial number and date of manufacture if you come up with a model number type it into a search engine online if manufacture name not on that label to find out who makes it, then contact them for pieces

hope that helped

The Dorel 3-1 convertible crib model # WM1633


Do not use this crib. This crib broke and caused my infant son of six months to get caught. He passed away on October 16th because of getting caught in this crib. I am trying to getting this crib recalled. Please Please do not use drop down cribs. They are entrappment devices for infants. 3 infants including my son have died in 2008 due to drop down side cribs. Please for your babies sake, take this crib back.
