Question about Graco 9445DOH Crib

2 Answers

Assembly I have unassembled this playpen and sent it home with my son, he has been trying to reassemble it, but has been unable to figure out where the 2 longest metal bars go. I have lost the instructions that came with it and am 45 miles away from him. I need to find out how to assemble this product so that I may tell him how to do it.

Re: assembly

The 2 long bars, you speak of, go to the bassinet portion of the crib. The 'netting which goes over the top of the crib, clips on to the (2) sides. The bars, slip in the sleeves at either end of the netting; where the shorter bars, slip in at the bottom of the netting. Then, of course, you take the mattress off the bottom and put it in the netting; and there you have the 'Bassinet'!

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!

Putting up and taking down of Graco Avalon playpen

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.

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.

The sides are like elbows. You have to hyper-extend the elbows upward to get them to lock. It took my husband's strength on the longer sides.
