Folding up Cosco play yard

I have the cosco funsport play yard (05010TCT), and after using it once, I can't seem to get it folded back up for storage, and the instruction book is nowhere to be found after the Thanksgiving chaos! I can get all the sides to fold, but can't get it folded small enough to put back in the box. I do not recommend this play yard to anyone (Cosco Juvenile Play Yard ) its the worst when your trying to pack it up. We bought this so when we travel we have it on hand. Well..thank god we were traveling in our RV because when it came time to pack it up, we couldnt get it to fold and had to store it under the RV carriage half folded. Very frustrating instead of convenient.

My wife and I have the same model for visits by our granddaughter. She was having the same trouble as were you and, like you, we did not have instructions.

I'm happy to share with you what I found to close the model up for storage. It may not be the same as what the manufacturer envisioned but it worked for us.

-- With the pad removed from the inside of the Pack n Play, pull up on the red handle so as to loosen the legs;

-- Next, you will find there is a big button in the middle of each of the long sides of the Pack n Play. Start with either long side. You will have to press very hard on either side of that button; I found it helpful to use both hands, one pressing on the outside of the playpen, the other hand pressing on the inside of the playpen. Pressing these together will loosen the long support arm at the open top of the Pack n Play.

-- Do the same for the opposite long side.

-- You will also do the same, one button, one side at a time, for each of the two short sides of the Pack n Play.

-- Now pull up on the red handle in the middle, and guide the four corners so they meet and close.

-- Cover.

I found the buttons may not have fully allowed the support arms to collapse, thus blocking the Pack n Play from folding down completely. If so, try pressing the button again (both the outside and the inside at the same time).

Hope this helps!

To fold the Play Yard:

1) Take out floorboard. Pull up on finger tab in center of floor
and raise midway to top rail.

2) To unlock top rails, push in on indicator buttons on each side
of rail. (Pull up slightly then push down.) Do this for each of
the top rails in any order.
(Note: If locks fail to release, pull center finger tab and lift
center lock higher.)

3) Continue to pull up on finger tab to raise the floor and pull in
the legs.

Cosco funsport pay pen. cannot get the sides to release after pulling the middle up.


Sometimes you have to lift the bottom floor all the way up pulling the sides in.
Also, some of the side latches are double jointed so you may have 2 latches to press.

How i close my cosco plypen modle#05132cczj


Hi,

Check the below instructions. It might not be the same same as what the manufacturer envisioned but it worked for many people.

-- With the pad removed from the inside of the Pack n Play, pull up on the red handle so as to loosen the legs;

-- Next, you will find there is a big button in the middle of each of the long sides of the Pack n Play. Start with either long side. You will have to press very hard on either side of that button; I found it helpful to use both hands, one pressing on the outside of the playpen, the other hand pressing on the inside of the playpen. Pressing these together will loosen the long support arm at the open top of the Pack n Play.

-- Do the same for the opposite long side.

-- You will also do the same, one button, one side at a time, for each of the two short sides of the Pack n Play.

-- Now pull up on the red handle in the middle, and guide the four corners so they meet and close.

-- Cover.

I found the buttons may not have fully allowed the support arms to collapse, thus blocking the Pack n Play from folding down completely. If so, try pressing the button again (both the outside and the inside at the same time).


Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

We cannot get the hinges to release on our cosco play yard. So that we can fold it for carrying We have read the directions and squeezed as hard as we can in the center but it still won't release to fold...


Try pushing the hinge more as if you are locking it in place, before you squeeze to release.
i.e. If when the hinge releases it goes 'up' - push 'down' firmly on the hinge, squeeze to release and then pull up.

for Model Cosco Funs Port Play Yard
Just pull the cord in the middle of the upward and straighten out
each poll one by one. If you have someone that can help you
open the play yard pull lightly up the four sides and while you're holding them up, pulled the middle strip that located inside pull it up it will lock all four sides at the same time.

I don't have childred, but it drove me crazy that I couldn't do this
until my wife said maybe this is how you do it, I tryed it and it worked. I hope this helps everyone. Regards,
Frankie.

By the way, I've found it to be an exercise in frustration in trying to obtain an instruction manual from the manufacturer. I'm very disapopinted with this purchase and in particular this company.

Hope this helps!
