Re: Need instructions converting crib to toddler bed
I have all the instructions posted in an album on photobucket.com. In the site only search field (not the web search) type emilykenepp and change the search criteria from images to people. This should bring you to my profile- under my albums I have an album titled Graco Lauren Crib Assembly Instructions. Click on that and you should be good to go! Pages 10 and 11 are for the conversions. Also, for any further assistance, the customer service number for LaJobi (the people who actually manufacture the crib for Graco) is 1-888-266-2848 and for Graco it's 1-800-345-4109. Hope this helps!

You just take off the rail and Tada! it's a Toddler bed.
Then you can change from elmo sheets to Pokemon sheets and Tada! it's a Day/Bed. I don't know how they get away with advertising it as a 4-in-1 since there is no material difference between the daybed and the toddler bed.
Products America is not able to provide parts for Graco cribs and therefor not very familiar with their hardware. However, they can provide you with contact information for the company. You can contactProducts America at 800-205-9642 or 800-772-1041 for that information.
Most if not all of the simplicity brand drop-side cribs have been recalled, including the Graco 8740.
Here is the CPSP link regarding this crib: http://www.cpsc.gov/CPSCPUB/PREREL/prhtml09/09260list.html http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml07/07307.html
According to the CPSP information the company appears to be out of business to some degree and are not providing repair kits.
If you know where you purchased the crib, check to see what their policy is regarding recalled baby products.
We had purchased ours at walmart almost 8 years ago and were able to return it to another store in a different state for a full refund last summer. They did not need a reciept received, they just needed the manufacturer label on the part that the mattress lies on.
Because ours was older, the customer service clerk did have to work hard to find the crib in their system, but once she did, it was not problem at all.
Toddler conversion on at least some of the cribs is simply to remove the front dropside from the crib (you may want or need to unscrew the dropside tracks to remove the actual side) Then screw the toddler rails to the front side of the crib. There should be pre-drilled holes for the toddler rails, if there are not then you may have the mattress support on backwards.
I have posted the instructions in an album on photobucket. I believe you can print them from there. To get to them, go to photobucket.com and in the website only search field (not the web search) type emilykenepp and change the search from images to people. It should bring up my profile and under albums I have an album called Graco Lauren Crib Assembly Instructions. Click on that and you're good to go! Pages 10 and 11 are for conversions. If you have any further need, the number for LaJobi is 1-888-266-2848 and the number for Graco is 1-800-345-4109.
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 found the answers here: http://www.pali-design.com/index.php?path=customer_services&template=faq§ion=customer_services&subsection=faq&page=faq
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

bolts left and right side of the crib and remove the dropside (the
