if you have the conversion kit for the crib to convert to a toddler bed, you should also have the white caps that go one the end of the guard rails for the toddler bed. I found with mine that they are the same ones as that are on the stationary side of the crib on the back side. if you do not mind having a crib with out a drop side you can remove both tracks and take those pieces and make it a stationary crib by merely following the way the rear side is put together. I have done it with mine as a guide was broken on mine. there should be four caps in the conversion kit that go on the two rails on the front side when you convert to a day bed. I figured out that they are the same as the ones on the back because you do actually use the ones off of the back side when you make it a toddler bed and put all four rail on.

They company simplicity for children is making the exact same products as simplicity with the exact same models contact them, if you get no where contact you local better business bureau, as they still do have the parts and are required to provide you with parts as they took over the company. I have heard of many others who have been told "they no longer have the parts" but with in days of contacting their local BBB they receive the parts that they "no longer had" THEY DO EXIST THEY JUST DO NOT WANT TO STAND BEHIND THE OLD NAMES PRODUCTS all they did was go out of business and reopen under a new name Simplicity for Children they are still alive and well I think they are just trying to get out of the bad press associated with their old name, since they were the makers of the 10,000+ cribs recalled just over a year ago, people started no trusting the name, so hence the name change and the "we are not them" routine. I think it is nonsense, they still make the exact same products under and new name, so they do have parts they just do not want to deal with it
This bassinet really has been recalled due to strangulation hazards since two babies have died in it this way, do yourself the safe and easy solution, just take it back to the store for a full refund. Save a babies life and your sanity in not having to deal with this crazy stupid company who will not deal with their mistakes made under their old name (hint their address never changed, just their name!)

Graco doesn't make cribs, they just put their name on other people's cribs. This crib was actually made by Simplicity. This model crib (4605) WAS recalled in Sept 2007 (http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml09/09260list.html). But Simplicity is out of business now, so there is no fix available. This crib is VERY unsafe to use. And getting new tracks won't work, because this type of hardware was so problematic (and thus recalled) you won't be able to replace it. Please discard this crib, it is a death trap. A crib is the only place a parent should feel comfortable leaving their baby alone for hours at a time, thus it has to be the safest environment possible.

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.

Please note, Simplicity has gone out of business and the Simplicity Bassinets should NOT be used. They were sold at Walmart, Target and BabiesRUs. The word on the street is that Walmart is the easiest to deal with when it comes to returning them. Those who wish to return Simplicity cribs don't need a receipt, they can just take them to Walmart for store credit. BabiesRUs was apparently giving about $65 while Walmart was closer to $190. Again, this is just what I have heard from others.
You can find the specific information on the Simplicity recall here:
I would pack it up, take it in for store credit, and get a new crib!
You can get some great deals these days on bassinets, there's a great one on Amazon for $130 so it's kind of a no-brainer. Here's one of the top rated:
As I have heard, Walmart will take it back, no questions asked and no receipt necessary and you can get a brand new one with brand new parts, brand new instructions and no recalls or risks!
