Hi Melissa,

I had the same problem and was able to just go and buy the replacement screws at the hardware store. I actually took the parts to the store with me to make sure they fit.

Also, I am missing the plastic parts that make the side rail move up and down. Do you know where I could locate these? Thanks!

I lost the instruction Manuel and I need to convert the crib into the toddler bed

First I unbolted the four arms that hold the metal bed support up and pushed it down as flat as I could. I had to do it a couple of times and go kind of slow, to get the loose arms tucked away as best I could. They still stick up a little above the rest of the frame.

After much wrestling with the wooden front panel (gate) of the crib (the one I need to remove), here is what I did:

1. Find the wooden piece that crosses the bed just behind the gate. This is an approximately 1.5-inch by 3/4-inch piece. On ours, it's just above and in front of the drawer under the crib.
2. Find the metal screw at one end of this cross piece. You will see that it is on the outside of the bed, on the short end of the bed, in line with the cross piece.
3. Unscrew it. Note that this screw actually threads into a threaded piece inserted into the cross piece in a little hole on the back side of the cross piece, about 3/4 inch from the end. If this little silver metal piece falls out, you will need to find it and put it back in the hole with the threads facing the screw hole. The piece is the size of a pea.
4. Anyway, use an allen wrench to remove the screw, without losing that little inserted thingy.
5. I'm not saying this is textbook, but I then forced the end of the crib away from the rest of the crib while moving the gate up and down and pulling gently toward me (to pull the gate from its track). You have to move the end of the crib to create about a 1/2-inch gap before the gate will pop free.
6. The gate has two pins on each side, so when you get it freed on the site that you removed the screw on, the other side will come off without removing the second screw on that side.
7. I then got the drawer back on its tracks properly (it jumped the tracks a bit in the process), pushed everything back together the way it was, and screwed the screw back in. (if the screw wont thread, either you lost the aforementioned little silver piece, or that little silver piece is turned in the hold the wrong way)
8. With the gate removed, the crib (now toddler bed I guess) has four little tabs where the gate was once attached. Two I had to unscrew, and the other two I grabbed with a pliers and pulled out.

It wasn't elegant, but I certainly have an intact toddler bed now.

Hope helps. Good luck.

I have a bassett baby bed with no instructions, which way does the rail sit? Bed was manufactured in 1991. There is one keyhole slot on each side of the rail, does keyhole go in the top or in the bottom...

Just as I thought the keyhole slot went in the top screw hole for that section; noting the purpose of the keyhole slot is to put it on the screw and slide it down. I finally got the bed together, might I add without instructions, and it works great.

Generation 2 worldwide toddler bed lost all hardware (screws, etc

You should not attempt to buy hardware to reassemble the crib. Gen 2 has had recall problems with their products. One of the ways a recall is performed is to have the customer send the hardware to the company instead of the whole assembly, rendering it useless. If you received one without hardware, it was probably recalled.

Convert crib to toddler bed

I finally found my instructions!! It's actually really easy to convert to a toddler bed:
Step one: Take out four screws (two on each side) of the front railing and top bar. They are the screws holding the front railing and the top bar to the side of the crib and the dresser. 
Step two: Lower the mattress to the lowest setting. 
Step three: Place the toddler bed railing in place. It can go either way depending on which side of the crib your toddler sleeps. We put the taller part of the toddler railing closest to the dresser because that is where our son's head usually is. 
Step four: You'll need 4 1.5 inch hexagonal screws to screw in the toddler railing. After 2.5 years, I could only find two of them, so I used two 1.5 inch regular screws that came with the crib. On the taller part of the toddler railing -- the screws go into the 1st and the fifth holes. On the shorter side of the railing, the screws go into the 3rd and the 5th holes. 
That's it.. You've now got a toddler bed!

Convert to toddler bed

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:

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 convert a crib into a toddler bed you must loosen the two front gold bolts left and right side of the crib and remove the dropside (the front gate that goes up and down). After removing the dropside be very careful that you tighten back your two gold bolts.

How to install the streight rail (toddler rail)
To install a streight (toddler) rail loosen the two front gold bolts left and right side of the crib and remove the dropside, once you have removed the dropside replace with the streight rail. Always be very careful and make sure you tighten back your two gold bolts in the front.
