Missing Rubber Stoppers on Kinderkraft Crib Dreamer No. 305
The side rail keeps falling off (on my toes!) when I lower the rail because there are no stoppers to keep it from falling out of the track. There's no part number for it. Does anyone know where I can get a rubber stopper or what I can substitute? Thanks!

Sounds like you may either be missing a piece of the moving side hardware, or have an item installed backwards (the moving side components are left and right orientation). We can email a copy of the assembly instructions to you as well as replace any missing or broken hardware that you may need. Please email your request to us at email@example.com, and mention that is for a Kinderkraft Vermont (should be model 710 - check your label for model info), or call us at 800.205.9642 or 800.772.1041 for direct assistance.
On the bottom of the front rail that drops (the drop rail), there are two plastic tension pieces (one at either end) that engage the two fixed, bottom rail slider hardware (the long, narrow pieces screwed top-and-bottom into the lower, inside portion of the tall, upright crib ends). These tension pieces are spring loaded, and the outer edge of each one rides along the outside (i.e., the parent's side) of the two bottom metal rail guides. Their purpose is to supply outward pressure against the lower part of the drop rail - that's what you push against when you press your lower leg upon the bottom of the drop side of the crib to lower it. They insure that when up, the drop side locks safely into place. I suspect these tension pieces are your problem. It sounds like they are improperly installed. Good luck.
I have the 1999 version of KinderKraft's Crib 'N Toddler Dreamer No. 305. (model # 305NAT) I don't know how similar these are to each other, but I have used mine over two years for my son and have not had any problems. I recently converted it to the toddler daybed and I am very happy with it.
The slats on mine are 1 1/2 inches wide and the gaps between them are 2 inches wide. The standard for checking gaps is a soda can. If a standard size soda can fits between the slats of a crib, it is not safe. I don't know about any of the other features of your particular crib, but I hope this helps.
You likely are missing the lower track assemblies. Part # CC (right) and DD (left). These screw into the lower inside legs on the side with the drop down rail to secure the rail from dropping off. See instructions, Step 1 and Step 2.
Call Bassett 1-276-629-6000 to obtain instructions and a parts list for model # 5926-0504 (look on the inside headboard - not the gold label).
