SOURCE: I don't know how to set up my travel lite crib

You're not alone. If you do every step perfectly then it's a breeze. Most of us are human and don't... This frequently results in a major pain.

Most travel cribs print the directions on the pad that lines the bottom of the crib. Unfortunately, this still isn't much help. I'm going to assume that you're like most of us- you've read the directions and you still can't get the thing to cooperate!

I fought with my Graco travel crib many times before I discovered a few secrets:
- Follow the directions precisely, even if a step seems a bit odd.
- If you get going on it and mess up (or it just won't stay up), give it up and start over again from step 1.
- Before you start, make sure that it's completely collapsed. It may look like it is, when it isn't. Here's how you check:
There should be at least one handle near the middle of each top pole that can be squeezed (longer sides sometimes have two). Feel your way across the top pole until you find each lever and squeeze it. This will collapse the pole into two (or more) sections.
Make certain that the poles remain collapsed as you pull the center handle (center of crib where matress will go) towards the sky and squish the whole thing together like you're putting it back in the box (or carrying case.) Now we're ready to start!
1) Gently begin to unfold/open the crib as you hang onto the handle in the center.
2) Continue to hold the center handle with one hand. With the other hand, lift each top pole until it locks into one "solid" pole. NOTE: This is trickier than it sounds! If the center handle drops even half-way down then you won't be able to get all poles to lock and you'll have to start over again.
3) Only after all four top poles have been locked, can you push down the center handle. This will spread the bottom into one flat piece and finish locking everything in place.
Good News!: It's all downhill from here!
4) Put a sheet on the "mattress", if desired.
Otherwise, just unfold it and place it in the bottom of the crib. There are some strange little velcro tabs on the sides of the mattress. These fit down the slits in the bottom of the crib and attach to the underside. This step is important as it keeps the mattress in place and helps to reduce the risk of suffocation.
5) Finally, assemble the canopy, locate all the little snaps on the side, and snap on the accessories.
Whew! Take a deep breath... you did it!
Congratulations on your baby! Enjoy!

One side of this travel lite crib will not lock. Any suggestions?


Call Graco and complain. One of our customers got a free one sent to them!
You have to make sure the floor of your travellite is up in the middle (look for a pull strap).
We call it a volcano. If the bottom/floor isnt up you cant pull the sides up
or release them to go down.
Phone Graco® Customer Support is available Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm EST.

Need help setting up the bassinet part


The safest way to go to ensure the safety of your child would be to contact Graco they can supply you with the instructions I am not to sure if it is free but that really is not important. Explain that you were given the bassinet as a gift and no instructions came with the item.

One of short side top rails won't click into rigid position. Also now the other sides having clicked rigid won't unclick for folding up. Series 9045,9046


This was a Series 9045, 9046 Pack n Play Bassinet and the solution was to print off the PDF document available on the web and then collapse and reopen the unit carefully following all of the instructions - especially the note about ensuring that both arms are free at each clip.
