If you take the mattress pad out and collapse the base, you can then lock the sides. I was in the same boat as you. Very frustrating. Hope this helps.

    Thank you very much if it wasn't for your advise we would have never been able to get the sides locked. The instructions are very vague.

Is it ok to leave our pet playpen on the grass? We put it in a shady spot in our garden but now I am worrying that it will ruin our grass there.


You are right! If you leave the pet playpen in the same spot all the time, the grass underneath won't get any sun or rain and will not grow. You need to keep moving it around. If shading is an issue you can always put up a temporary cover.

Can I use my pet playpen indoors as well as outdoors?


Yes. You can put your pet playpen wherever you like. We keep our rabbit in a playpen outside when we go to work but if the weather isn't good we move it indoors (but not on our carpet!)

How to unfold a safety first playpen


Most all of the newer playpens called Pack N Plays use a bottom-center
safety device. You must lift up the bottom of the playpen, usually a tab or twist handle. Either lift or twist and lift to be able to drop or raise the sides. YOU CANNOT RAISE OR LOWER THE SIDES UNLESS YOU LIFT THE SAFETY UP. Dont man-handle the sides. Slamming them up or down will break them. Sometimes it helps to lift the side releases before pressing the releases thet are inside the cloth. Basically the floor of the playpen has to be sticking up to allow the sides to raise or lower and lock.

How do you lock an Avalon on the move series playpen? Where do I get instructions?


  • These playpens have a safety feature.
  1. First thing is to make sure the center of the playpen is up in the air.
  2. First lock the short side rails. They will click into place.
  3. Now lift up and lock the long set of rails.
  4. Now you want to push the center piece (floor) down all the way.
  5. Now your playpen is set up.
  6. When you go to put it up you will pull the floor up first and then release the side rails.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

How do I set up an avalon playpen? I can't seem to get the sides to stay up. Everytime I pull them up they just drop back down.


with the bottom still collapsed, straighten the sides, then they will stay. the bottom has to be the last part of the assembly.hope this helps ;)

Trying to put together a Foundations playpen but sides will not


The "trick" with the collapsing the foundations playpen is to step on the middle ring while pulling up on the "quick release latch in the middle of the long sides first, then the short sides.
Works every time!
