Graco 3-in-1 crib instructions

Check this CPSC link.

Most if not all of the simplicity brand cribs have been recalled reguardless of whether they had wood or metal mattress supports.

There were 2 different recalls on the wood version but both were recalled for the drop-side issues.

This link specifically includes the Aspen 3 in 1 cribs and model #: 8740

We took ours to our local walmart last summer (we purchased it in a different state almost 8 years ago). I brought to cpsc report with me. They had not issue with the recalled information we has matching it to our crib. It did take the clerk a bit to find our crib in their system because it was older, but once she did we recieved a full refund, without a receipt.

As far as changing them to a toddler bed. When we converted ours to a toddler bed we simply removed the drop-side from the crib. The drop-side parts can be unscrewed from the side rails. Then we screwed the toddler rails to the bottom of the crib. Ours had screw holds for the toddler rails on the mattress support. If you do not have the holes for it, then you may have put the mattress support on backwards ie with the side that has the holes for the toddler bed rails on the backside of the crib.

I lost my instrction manual!

Step 1: Detach the front panel from the 2 front post using an allen wrench
Step 2: If the mattress support is not in the lowest position unscrew the bolts and move it to the lowest position
Step 3: Using the allen wrench, attach the guard rail using 4 bolts between the lest and right front post (the guard rail would be that extra piece that you couldn't do anything with while the bed was converted to a crib. Looks kinda like a wooden board)
Step 4: Tighten all screws and put the crib mattress back in

I need to know how to convert it to a toddler bed

There should have been an extra board with the crib.

My sister-in-law swears her's didn't come with it, but our's did.

You have to remove the sliding front side, along with the metal rails that hold the rail. You''ll see a hole on each end. 2 long screws hold the board on.
