Question about Simmons Mattress Matino - Natural Maple Crib

1 Answer

Drop side latches at bottom are broken, side wont stay up without zip ties or some other thing holding it together.

Want to know if replacement parts can be ordered for anything like this or if I need to get a new one (we are about 6 mo away from not needing it) or if I should just buy brackets and screw them to the crib myself

the siderail latches are broken and having a hard time keeping the rail up child can pop the rail out of place need to fix this problem asap. it won't stay in place unless something is tied around it.

    simmons issued a recall on some 98-2000 cribs due to the brackets breaking-which can cause the mattress to collapse. They are offering a free replacement set of brackets to make those cribs safe again. I don;t know if that is the problem with yours, but you may want to check into it. : )

I have a nod a way crib i dont have the instuctions can you hellp me so i can putt it together


Nod-a-way cribs go together about the same way as the rest. If you have 2 metal rods
those hold the front-dropdside and allow the dropside to move safely up and down.
The back will have either 4 bolts, 2 on top-2 on bottom or a nub that holds the top side
of the back-fixed rail with 2 bolts on the bottom. The mattress support will either bolt in,
slide into opennings on the head and footboard. The hard thing is getting the dropside
set right so that it drops when you push the release with your foot. Be sure to lift then push
with your foot. Let me know if any of yours is different. I'll try and help more.

My friend gave me a crib she purchased from you years ago, it has the drop sides but is not on any recall list, she checked before I got it, only thing is I am trying to put it together and don't know how....


You havent given us enough detail. When you say 'Bottom Spring" do you mean the mattress support?
The drop down bars bolt on to the headboard or footboard (one each) and let the dropside move up and down, held in place by the bars. The backside usually has bolts that run thru the head and footboard
to attach them. Some just have small nubs that the top of the backside sit onto and a bolt holds the
bottom of both sides. If you wish to send a picture of what you have for further details, send
it to ozarks333@hotmail.com
I will help you get it right.

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.

Need to put crib together


The company said this is discontinued and cannot be replaced. They no longer use this type of latch bracket. I guess we will have to purchase a new crib.

Side rail


honest answer: take super heavy duty zip ties and tie the drop side in place in like 8 places to be sure it will stay put.

i did it with my crib to be safe when simplicity recalled theirs for rail issues, i would start with trying to get a hold of a person st simplicity for children your crib may be one of the ones recalled for rail failure issues then they would send you parts free

they should also be able to help you find out if the crib is theirs or not too

you should under the crib for a sticker with numbers, usually the model number / serial number and date of manufacture if you come up with a model number type it into a search engine online if manufacture name not on that label to find out who makes it, then contact them for pieces

hope that helped

The Dorel 3-1 convertible crib model # WM1633


Do not use this crib. This crib broke and caused my infant son of six months to get caught. He passed away on October 16th because of getting caught in this crib. I am trying to getting this crib recalled. Please Please do not use drop down cribs. They are entrappment devices for infants. 3 infants including my son have died in 2008 due to drop down side cribs. Please for your babies sake, take this crib back.

Childesigns crib part needed


I have the same problem and I spoke to www.productsamerica.com at 1-800-772-1041 this morning and they said that the childesign is no longer in production as far as they know and no parts available. They also said no repair kits available will fit it. I am stomped as to whether I should just go out and buy another crib now.
