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.

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.

Regards, Tony

Instructions for Avalon ''On the move series'' playpen


I have had this problem with one of my daughter’s playpens. What I did was take the mattress out then pull the bottom part up. After that I pushed the buttons underneath the top rails and pulled up on those as well. For some odd reason this playpen WILL NOT collapse until you pull the bottom up. Hope this helps.
