The "trick" with the collapsing the foundations playpen is to step on the middle ring while pulling up on the "quick release latch in the middle of the long sides first, then the short sides.
Works every time!

SOURCE: Cosco Playpen

I just bought a Cosco Juvenile playpen. My entire family has tried and failed to set up this piece of junk. I don't understand why it won't lock in place and I don't understand why they advertise "quick and easy."

What are the advantages of buying a pet playpen for my new puppy?


Buying a pet playpen will allow your puppy to run around and have space to play (assuming you buy one that is big enough), without letting him go crazy with your furniture. Playpens can be a great alternative to putting your pet on a leash.

How to unfold a safety first playpen


Most all of the newer playpens called Pack N Plays use a bottom-center
safety device. You must lift up the bottom of the playpen, usually a tab or twist handle. Either lift or twist and lift to be able to drop or raise the sides. YOU CANNOT RAISE OR LOWER THE SIDES UNLESS YOU LIFT THE SAFETY UP. Dont man-handle the sides. Slamming them up or down will break them. Sometimes it helps to lift the side releases before pressing the releases thet are inside the cloth. Basically the floor of the playpen has to be sticking up to allow the sides to raise or lower and lock.

How do you lock an Avalon on the move series playpen? Where do I get instructions?


  • These playpens have a safety feature.
  1. First thing is to make sure the center of the playpen is up in the air.
  2. First lock the short side rails. They will click into place.
  3. Now lift up and lock the long set of rails.
  4. Now you want to push the center piece (floor) down all the way.
  5. Now your playpen is set up.
  6. When you go to put it up you will pull the floor up first and then release the side rails.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Folding up Cosco play yard


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).

Hope this helps!

Putting up and taking down of Graco Avalon playpen


If you take the mattress pad out and collapse the base, you can then lock the sides. I was in the same boat as you. Very frustrating. Hope this helps.

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!
