Graco is not a manufacturer of cribs, they sell their name to crib makers. Currently, LaJobi is the maker of Graco cribs, and they offer a Lauren crib (which was recalled!). But, you say this crib is 7 years old? That is before LaJobi made their cribs (I think). Check the labeling on the crib (on the headboard, under the mattress) and see if the actual manufacturer is listed. If you are looking to replace a plastic part for the drop side, then I recommend you don't bother and just get rid of the crib. Those plastic parts are connected to the drop side by screws, and removing and replacing a screw into wood makes the wood weaker in that area. You take the chance it will never be tight and if it falls off in the middle of the night, that could be a deadly consequence for your baby. That is why so many cribs are being recalled now. The drop side hardware breaks, parts get lost, and for a few unfortunates, this results in a child dying. Check the label, see who makes it and whether or not it was recalled as shown in this link: http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml10/10212.html
Aunt Sissy 588,
The sliding 'gate' is fixed with screws which will require a flat tip or star tip screw driver and likely a small Allen key of between 3 and 5mm (1/8" and 3/16"). With a little thought and removing all items associated with the vertically sliding 'gate' ONLY you should end up with a lovely stable day bed at no cost.
The Assembly instructions for hte 1322 crib show it is part #8, but I see the stabilizing bar as permanently attached to the catch lever which is #7. The gate shoes (part that actually latches), is part #12... there are two of these which clip into the catch lever (#8) when the side is elevated. You need to provide the model and the parts that you need. Here is contact information from the web page http://www.simmonskids.com/consumer_service.cfm:

I just posted a similar answer to another person looking for hardware for an older crib. PLEASE do not use this crib. Any crib with hardware missing is an accident waiting to happen. Even if you were to find the tracks, if you are screwing those tracks into wood, then the screws will not be as secure as the original ones and can and will get loose and back-out of the wood. If that happens and the track comes loose, that corner of the drop side can come off which creates a death trap for your baby. A crib is the ONLY place a parent can safely leave their infant alone. So you want to make sure you have the crib in the safest condition. This means all original parts, nothing broken, bent, cracked or repaired. Too many babies die each year because parents attempt to repair or fix a crib with missing parts.
It says on the inside of my crib rail for replacement parts call 8005441108. That is where I got my instructions from the lady at customer sevice e-mailed them righ to me.
There are also some web sites to go to for all crib parts. Here is one that I found for my crib... www.productsamerica.com
