I just bought a soft playpen for my puppy but I cant really figure out how to set it up properly and what all the features are and there is no manual for it. Can anyone help?

It really depends which soft pet playpen you bought but they tend to all work in the same way. Here is a YouTube clip that explains how to set one up and all the zips etc and what they do. Good Luck

What brand and type of soft playpen did you buy? If you give some more details I might be able to help you answer the question.
You could always contact the manufacturer that you bought it from and ask them for a spare copy.
Good Luck

How do you fold a cosco playpen

1. Pull the mat out.
2. Lift bars under mat (you can't see them but can feel them)
3. Click buttons on the rods that make up the top railing (they are in the center of the rods and you can't usually see them either)
4. Fold

I cannot release the top bars on the Cosco playpen.

  • This is a safety feature.
  • When picking up the playpen you need pull pull the middle clear up first and then the side rails can be released.
  • When you set it up again make sure you set the rails up first and then push down the middle.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

I collapsed my Cosco Safari playpen and now I can not get the sides to stay up. They just remain collapsed. How do I fix this?

pull up the sides while the center is still up. If you flatten the center of the playpen first, the sides will not engage.

Cosco Playpen

My wife and I have the same model for visits by our granddaughter. She was having the same trouble as were you and, like you, we did not have instructions.

I'm happy to share with you what I found to close the model up for storage. It may not be the same as what the manufacturer envisioned but it worked for us.

-- With the pad removed from the inside of the Pack n Play, pull up on the red handle so as to loosen the legs;

-- Next, you will find there is a big button in the middle of each of the long sides of the Pack n Play. Start with either long side. You will have to press very hard on either side of that button; I found it helpful to use both hands, one pressing on the outside of the playpen, the other hand pressing on the inside of the playpen. Pressing these together will loosen the long support arm at the open top of the Pack n Play.

-- Do the same for the opposite long side.

-- You will also do the same, one button, one side at a time, for each of the two short sides of the Pack n Play.

-- Now pull up on the red handle in the middle, and guide the four corners so they meet and close.

-- Cover.

I found the buttons may not have fully allowed the support arms to collapse, thus blocking the Pack n Play from folding down completely. If so, try pressing the button again (both the outside and the inside at the same time).

By the way, I've found it to be an exercise in frustration in trying to obtain an instruction manual from the manufacturer. I'm very disapopinted with this purchase and in particular this company.

Hope this helps!

The sides are like elbows. You have to hyper-extend the elbows upward to get them to lock. It took my husband's strength on the longer sides.
