If you are changing it to a regular twin-sized bed with the headboard, you need a boxspring WITH a matress. Matresses will break down laying directly on a bed frame. A boxspring gives the frame something hard to help support the matress

You need to buy a full-size bed frame from a mattress store. When you purchase it, you can ask them to show you a frame on the floor with a headboard attached to it. It will attach to the headboard using plates just like the ones you got in your kit.
Just the mattress should be fine since it already has a "bed frame". But since a lot of people have trouble converting cribs into day beds or full-size beds, you are probably better off getting a box spring for that. Also, find out if you have the parts that you need. There have been a lot of recalled Simplicity cribs and the parts for those recalled items are no longer available.
Is it the full size bed frame that goes to that bed because if it is not it will not attach. It will only attach to the special boards you had to order from them. You can try this email I have for them, but I am unsure if they are in business anymore. I know they were connected with Graco so if the email does not work you can try Graco for a manual. The email I have is email@example.com
I have been looking relentlessly for these bed rails for a few months now and I have found the supplier who has taken over for Simplicity which made the Sydney and Ellis cribs.
The company is called Elfe Graco. There telephone number is 1-800-667-8184. They are located in Quebec.
Tell them what crib you have and what colour you are looking for. They will ask you for the model number and the manufacturing date which is located on the crib mattress support (In the middle of the instructions).
I have ordered mine today and they have all colours in stock!
This is intended for the Simplicity Ellis 4-in-1 crib not the Aspen. My hubby just put together the toddler bed, and he had a problem with securing the screws of the metal mattress support to the crib. He put the screws one by one and there was a gap of nearly 1/2 inch from the crib. He resolved this problem by putting the screws on all four ends of the mattress support, then he tightened the back rail screws (the higher end) first and when he tightened the front rail screws the gap automatically disappeared. I hope I am clear enough on this as I'm not the one who installed this crib, but as he was quite frustrated I thought this might be able to help others who may have the same problem.
