Your crib was recalled and company is out of business. DO NOT USE FOR YOUR NEW BABY.
This recall will be carried out by retailers since the manufacturer is no longer in business. These cribs were sold at Walmart, Target and Babies R Us stores. You should contact the store where you purchased the crib to receive a refund, store credit or replacement crib.Do not attempt to fix a recalled Simplicity crib. Please find a safe, alternative sleeping location for your baby until the crib can be replaced. It's important to note, as well, that all Simplicity drop-side cribs are already under recall due to a problem with the drop-side.https://www.cpsc.gov/en/recalls/2010/simplicity-cribs-recalled-by-retailers-mattress-support-collapse-can-cause-suffocation-and-strangulation/

Recall, Baby cribs. U.S Consumer Product Safety Comm.


About 1 Million Simplicity Cribs Recalled Due To Failures Resulting in Infant Deaths NOTE: Repair Kits that immobilize the drop-side are now available
ALSO NOTE: Consumers who have participated or have yet to respond to Simplicity’s June 2007 recall of Nursery-in-a-Box cribs are strongly urged to also participate in this recall. AND ADDITIONALLY: A subsequent recall involving Simplicity drop side cribs has been issued. WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is announcing today a voluntary recall with Simplicity Inc., of Reading, Pa., of about 1 million cribs. The drop-side can detach from the crib, which can create a dangerous gap and lead to the entrapment and suffocation of infants. CPSC is aware of two deaths in Simplicity manufactured cribs with older style hardware, including a 9-month-old child and a 6-month-old child, where the drop-side was installed upside down. CPSC is also aware of seven infant entrapments and 55 incidents in these cribs. CPSC is also investigating the death of a 1-year-old child in a Simplicity crib with newer style hardware, in which the drop-side was installed upside down. CPSC is warning parents and caregivers to check all Simplicity cribs to make sure the drop-side is installed right side up. The drop-side failures result from both the hardware and crib design, which allow consumers to unintentionally install the drop-side upside down. This, in turn, can weaken the hardware and cause the drop-side to detach from the crib. When the drop-side detaches, it creates a gap in which infants can become entrapped. CPSC is also aware of two incidents that occurred when the drop-side was correctly installed with older style hardware, though the upside down installation greatly increases the risk of failure. The recalled Simplicity crib models include: Aspen 3 in 1, Aspen 4 in 1, Nursery-in-a-Box, Crib N Changer Combo, Chelsea and Pooh 4 in 1. The recall also involves the following Simplicity cribs that used the Graco logo: Aspen 3 in 1, Ultra 3 in 1, Ultra 4 in1, Ultra 5 in 1, Whitney and the Trio. The recalled cribs have one of the following model numbers, which can be found on the envelope attached to the mattress support and on the label attached to the headboard: 4600, 4605, 4705, 5000, 8000, 8324, 8800, 8740, 8910, 8994, 8050, 8750, 8760, and 8996. The cribs, which were made in China, were sold in department stores, children’s stores and mass merchandisers nationwide from January 1998 through May 2007 for between $100 and $300. As an immediate precaution, consumers should check to see if the drop-side is installed right side up. To do this, check to see that the slightly rounded rail with the decorative groove is installed at the top and the plain rail is on the bottom. Next, consumers should make sure the drop-side is securely attached to the tracks in all four corners.

There is more info, including phone #'s ect on the
U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Webite about this recall.

How to I take apart the drop down side of this crib. I had it installed and can't figure it out


This is tricky but I have put it together and taken it apart countless times (3 kids, 2 houses and everyone switching rooms). All of the screws keeping the crib together need to be as loose as possible without the crib coming apart. I found it easiest to have someone help so they can help hold the crib. It's important not to pull the drop side apart as it will break the plastic slides (I've done this and had to replace them). Have your helper hold one side of the drop crib right against the side piece of the crib and slide the drop side down to detach it from the side your helper isn't on. once this side is detached do the same for the opposite side. On the crib side that attaches to the drop side is a "screw" that slides down the plastic slide and a "peg" at the bottom. I always get the peg out of the track and then you can slide the screw all the way down the slide to get it out.

I am missing the guide parts that are moving the front mobile gate up and down on the crib.i had this crib for 7 years.is a graco 2 in 1 crib.can you please tell me where i can find the parts?


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

I have a similar crib by Rita Bella. This is what worked for me.

1. Remove drawer.
2. Face crib's drop-side.
3. On left side of crib (based on you facing the drop-side) locate two allen head screws close to you. Unscrew them. A piece of wood in the front will drop. This is normal.
4. Push left side of crib outward (about 1/4") until you can see the metal pin that controls the locking function of the drop-side. It is near the bottom.
5. Pull out the bottom part of the drop-side so it's not in the plastic groove area anymore. This should get the right side out as well.
6. Tilt the drop-side -- the bottom part should swing toward you. When it is completely tilted, you will see the wooden groove in the side of the crib, and you can then remove the drop-side pretty easily.
7. Replace the screws. You may need an extra pair of hands to get all the parts in place.
8. Replace the drawer.
