I've got a Kolcraft playpen. I've only taken it down once and when I went to put it back up the two short sides wouldn't pop up. The long sides went right up and snapped into place. Is there a way I can get the other two sides to stay up?

This is tricky but I have put it together and taken it apart countless times (3 kids, 2 houses and everyone switching rooms). All of the screws keeping the crib together need to be as loose as possible without the crib coming apart. I found it easiest to have someone help so they can help hold the crib. It's important not to pull the drop side apart as it will break the plastic slides (I've done this and had to replace them). Have your helper hold one side of the drop crib right against the side piece of the crib and slide the drop side down to detach it from the side your helper isn't on. once this side is detached do the same for the opposite side. On the crib side that attaches to the drop side is a "screw" that slides down the plastic slide and a "peg" at the bottom. I always get the peg out of the track and then you can slide the screw all the way down the slide to get it out.

They do have answers on their website, you may want to check your printed or online crib instructions to remind yourself how you put the crib together, too.

i've pasted them below. You can make it a toddler bed without a side rail just by removing the movable side of your crib, and you can install the side rail instead of the movable side if you want it to look a little more finished and help keep your child from rolling out of the bed.
How to convert a crib into a toddler bed To
convert a crib into a toddler bed you must loosen the two front gold
bolts left and right side of the crib and remove the dropside (the
front gate that goes up and down). After removing the dropside be very
careful that you tighten back your two gold bolts.

Hello I too have this bassinet and went looking online for a 'how to' on removing to wash. What I found was the manual, I will post the link below. In the manual it does say that the fabric cannot be removed from the canopy frame.
you have to either turn off your pop up blocker for this manual or hold down "control" when clicking the link for it
