Question about Childesigns Bellmont Crib

Childesigns crib part needed

The plastic piece that would enable me to release the side of the crib that drops down has broken. Does anyone know where I might be able to get one? By looking at the pictures I believe the style of the crib is Bellmont...but not sure! Any help would be appreciated...even if somone knows how to contact the company that makes these! I am tired of propping books under the crib to hold the side up! Thanks Maggi

    I too have the Bellmont style crib and have a problem with the plastic part at the bottom of one the longer sides, the one that goes up and down. the pieces at the end of the bars on the bottom have started to open up and don't ride the rail to go up and down. Instead they pop out becuase they aren't as tight and slip off. Where can I find these pieces?

    I was given this crib for my grandson. It too, has a broken PLASTIC part that you use to drop down the side rail. I just tied it up with a cord for now, but would love to know where to turn to get replacement parts... any one wanting to throw their crib out that would be willing to sell me parts?? Please email me and I'll gladly pay for them...

    I need a replacement piece for the side as well... Has anyone bought the parts from Products america? Does it fit the childesigns crib?

A pretty good idea- screw a 1-1 1/2" wood screw into the bottom of the "keyhole "shaped slot where the plastic trigger assembly would normally latch. Leave the screw head out far enough to catch the drop down rail. This will keep the rail at its regular "up" height. However, this repair will not allow you to drop the rail down. All my research has led me to conclude that the Childesign company no longer exists. my crib is convertible to a child bed so once my guy gets big enough I'll remove the drop down rail completely and eventually part out this crib or burn it!! What a hassle.I sympathize with all of you.

I have the same problem. If anyone who gave up on trying to find parts for this crib, I would like to know if they can sell the part I need that may be available with the one you have in perfect condition, I can consider buying it.

Check your crib first to make sure the slats are not more than 2 3/8" (2.375") apart. If they are, a new born can be strangled. Scrap it and get a new crib. Unfortunately the manufactures don't standardize their hardware so the rarely match.

I also have the same problem and have been unable to find any replacement. I guess I will by a new hardware set and try to replace all hardware on that side of the crib. It might be better than throwing it away.

I have the same problem and I spoke to at 1-800-772-1041 this morning and they said that the childesign is no longer in production as far as they know and no parts available. They also said no repair kits available will fit it. I am stomped as to whether I should just go out and buy another crib now.

Is this crib part of the massive November 2009 recall?

No. The cribs being recalled are made by StorkCraft but any crib with a drop side that has plastic parts could pose a problem. Make sure the side latches securely and that the space between the side and the mattress is not large enough for a child's head to get trapped.

Broken plastic brace on stationary side

Childesign is in fact out of business and did not leave any way for their customer's to buy lost or broken parts. Unfortunately, you will find it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to find the part you are looking for.

Try you local hardware store. ACE Hardware or a True Value.

If you think that the parts are repairable you might ask the hardware folks for a glue that will bond that material to itself. Plastic Welder brand glue usually works well for this.

Childesign Shelby crib replacement parts

You know I just purchased a Childesigns crib from a garage sale thatI thought had everything needed. When I got home, we found it was missing one top plastic rod. Of course nothing will work without that. I found this webpage that sells a VERY similar product. It is not exact, but to be able to use the crib, this was a good option for us. Hope this helps.
