The steel pole, rod or whatever that goes on the railing so that the rail can be let up and down is missing. Do you know where I could purchase another one cause the one side of the crib is flemsy cause its not connected.

Re: missing pieces

This is from Bassett's website.

Bassett recommends that all cribs manufactured prior to 1972 be replaced because improved safety features were instituted that year. If your crib was made in 1972 or after, replacement parts are available from Products America at 1-800-772-1041. If you are unsure when your Bassett crib was made, Bassett urges you to replace it.

Ive got a 10x10 lawn and party gazebo made by summer rite ... do you know where to get instructions ?

Okay, Here it goes.

First lay out all of the parts by number (little stickers on poles) or sizes if the stickers are gone.


Take the 1's and 2's and connect them together creating one big pole that will act as one of the roof peak structures. If you have lost your numbers, these two poles should be the two middle sized poles (4 of each).

Then connect each end of #1 to the center peak piece


Once all four combined poles (1 and 2) are attached to the center piece, add the pole brace pieces to each end of the bottom or #2 Piece.
Once this is done, combine two number 3's with one 4 (the 4 being in the middle of the two with both silver metal fasteners on the #3 poles facing outwards)


Then connect each end of the combined poles to the end piece.

Now lay out the final set of poles (# 5 and 6), but only connect the #5 pole to the end piece first, all around the gazebo.

Okay, now we want to start adding the actual canopy. Start by pulling the corners down at each pole joint then velcroing the tarp underneath in the middle of the 3-4-3 combined pole.

Now it is safe to connect the next set of poles (#6) to the leg poles (#5). Make sure the end with the 3 drilled holes are closest to the ground. On each end of the tarp legs there is a silver hook. Hook this into the 1st hole in the pole for support.

Connect the foot cap to the end of each pole and then connect the plastic o ring to the connector on the foot piece and readjust the silver hook as needed to either hole 2 or 3 (see photos).

Then the final parts are easy, secure any velcro straps to the legs, then use the stakes to stake down the whole thing and you may use the secure ropes as needed though I tend two just put two stakes in each foot piece at different angles.

Congratulations !!!!! Your Summer Rite Gazebo is ready for festivities. Hope this helps !!!

I don't know how to set up my travel lite crib bassinet

You're not alone. If you do every step perfectly then it's a breeze. Most of us are human and don't... This frequently results in a major pain.

Most travel cribs print the directions on the pad that lines the bottom of the crib. Unfortunately, this still isn't much help. I'm going to assume that you're like most of us- you've read the directions and you still can't get the thing to cooperate!

I fought with my Graco travel crib many times before I discovered a few secrets:
- Follow the directions precisely, even if a step seems a bit odd.
- If you get going on it and mess up (or it just won't stay up), give it up and start over again from step 1.
- Before you start, make sure that it's completely collapsed. It may look like it is, when it isn't. Here's how you check:
There should be at least one handle near the middle of each top pole that can be squeezed (longer sides sometimes have two). Feel your way across the top pole until you find each lever and squeeze it. This will collapse the pole into two (or more) sections.
Make certain that the poles remain collapsed as you pull the center handle (center of crib where matress will go) towards the sky and squish the whole thing together like you're putting it back in the box (or carrying case.) Now we're ready to start!
1) Gently begin to unfold/open the crib as you hang onto the handle in the center.
2) Continue to hold the center handle with one hand. With the other hand, lift each top pole until it locks into one "solid" pole. NOTE: This is trickier than it sounds! If the center handle drops even half-way down then you won't be able to get all poles to lock and you'll have to start over again.
3) Only after all four top poles have been locked, can you push down the center handle. This will spread the bottom into one flat piece and finish locking everything in place.
Good News!: It's all downhill from here!
4) Put a sheet on the "mattress", if desired.
Otherwise, just unfold it and place it in the bottom of the crib. There are some strange little velcro tabs on the sides of the mattress. These fit down the slits in the bottom of the crib and attach to the underside. This step is important as it keeps the mattress in place and helps to reduce the risk of suffocation.
5) Finally, assemble the canopy, locate all the little snaps on the side, and snap on the accessories.
Whew! Take a deep breath... you did it!
Congratulations on your baby! Enjoy!

As we were putting crib together (brand new) we notice that there was a piece missing off the railing where it goes up and down to put baby in. How could I find this part?

immediately call the manufacturer and tell them. sometimes in factories pieces are left behind by mistake. in addition contact the store where you purchased the brand new crib one of those two should be able to help.

Unique Oak Treasures Crib - Full Bed Bassett Model 5542-0521

We have this crib as well. We bought it from Babys R' Us in 2005.
We also purchased the rails to convert it to a full sized bed. It did not come with instructions but I can explain to you how to put it together.

The rail conversion set should come with 2 pieces of wood that act as the bed frame. You do not need to purchase the extended frame. The set should also come with 4 long screws, the hex tool to tighten it and 4 metal pieces. You might also have some wood nail cover plugs.

Once you've taken apart your crib, the only pieces that you will need are the 2 longer pieces of the crib...the headboard and the footboard. The 2 shorter side pieces which served as a headboard and footboard as a crib and the metal grate to hold up the mattress can be put into storage.

On the sides of each of the new wood rails, you will see a circle indent on each end with a hole. You will insert one of the long screws into each and then insert it into the head board. You must use the special tool to screw/ tighten it in. The metal flat pieces can be inserted into it the circle befor eyou are done tightning so that it does not strip or damage the end of the circle. You do this with the other rail on the other end and then add the footboard using the same process. If you would like, I can send you a copy of what this looks like close up. ( the cricle indent with screws. The bed is extremely strong. We've all napt in it as a family along with our 2 large dogs. I highly recommend ordering the extra long/ tall bed rails from OneStepAhead for security because my son has rolled out of the bed and it is super tall!

Pottery Barn Sleigh Crib Assembly Instructions

We recently put together a PBKids sleigh crib bought on craigslist. the original owner gave us all the old bolts. We actually put the side that DOESN'T say "push" on first. When attaching the "push" side - the one thing we figured out is that you have to fit that side UNDER the rails that are visible on the sides and then pull UP (rather than going down, you have to pull up to fit it in.) that said, the original owner did not give us any bolts/stops to put in the sides that would keep the rail from falling completely to the floor when you push the drop side in. anyone else have suggestions?

Missing parts

You should be able to take those pieces out of the bottom ends of the crib rail bother than that I'm not sure I have been looking for the plastic pieces for the top of the rail that you squeeze together to lower the side and I called the company and they said they don't carry any parts for this crib anymore. I wish we could all get these cribs together and switch pieces that we need to make at least some of these cribs work its pretty bad. Oh well I hope this helps you.
