Question about Baby Gear

1 Answer

I have my daughter's crib and now I want to use it for my grandson (her son). It's in great shape and we have everything but the instruction manual. It was lost somewhere in between 6 moves. It's a Bassett crib that I ordered in 1974. The ends are solid and the siderails are the vertical slats. It was a very common crib back in the day. It's dark brown but I think they also had it in white. We have the crib put together, but the side rails will not lock in the upright position. Thanks, in advance, for any help.

Please make sure that a soda can will not fit between the slats as that is the current safety guideline for cribs. As to the sides staying up; if you cannot get the hardware to work, you can drill a nail-sized hole through the side and into the head and foot boards and put a pin through. Later you can put a screw with a wing nut to hold it against little clever fingers. Hope this pertains to your particular model. Happy grandparenting:)

My step daughter is due to give birth in one week and we are trying to assemble the crib (Simplicity model 4106 TC) without an instruction manual. Do you have a manual you can email to me or can you...

Most Simplicity cribs have been recalled. Check with for info. Here is a link
but I dont see the crib you describe. Also, I dont know of any that use metal and wood in combination.
If it is recalled Walmart offers a full refund of their original retail price, no receipt required.
If you have a date of manufacture (MFG) I may be able to help more.
Repost a new question with that info if you like.

Jenny Linn crib instructions

Instruction manual for Graco - Sarah 4-in-1 Convertible Crib, Che

My wife and I bought this same crib. We thought the same as well. We looked everywhere for the instructions- so we thought. We finally found someone to call and ask for help and she told us to

" Look in the box that has the mattress springs in them. The instructions are normally attached to them."

As I was on the phone with the lady helping us, I opened the spring box and there they were attached to it inside a white envelope.
