Aunt Sissy 588,
The sliding 'gate' is fixed with screws which will require a flat tip or star tip screw driver and likely a small Allen key of between 3 and 5mm (1/8" and 3/16"). With a little thought and removing all items associated with the vertically sliding 'gate' ONLY you should end up with a lovely stable day bed at no cost.

Converting from crib to daybed, need instructions


I just took off the front of the crib (long side) to prevent injuries when my son started climbing out his crib. It's sturdy enough and cheap.

Lost manual for crib to toddler bed Model 8760H


Hi everyone,

I just went on to the Storkcraft website for Canada and found some installation instructions. There are instructions for the initial set up, for converting to a toddler bed, and converting to a daybed. Here's the link . On the right side there are 3 links for Assembly instructions. The first is the initial assembly, the second shows the toddler bed and daybed assembly, and the third is a complete installation manual. Hope that helps!

Daybed


Most if not all of the simplicity brand drop-side cribs have been recalled, including the Graco Apsen 8740 models.

Here is the CPSP link regarding this crib:
http://www.cpsc.gov/CPSCPUB/PREREL/prhtml09/09260list.html
http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml07/07307.html

According to the CPSP information the company appears to be out of business to some degree and are not providing repair kits.

If you know where you purchased the crib, check to see what their policy is regarding recalled baby products.

We had purchased ours at walmart almost 8 years ago and were able to return it to another store in a different state for a full refund last summer. They did not need a reciept received, they just needed the manufacturer label on the part that the mattress lies on.

Because ours was older, the customer service clerk did have to work hard to find the crib in their system, but once she did, it was not problem at all.

Toddler conversion on at least some of the cribs is simply to remove the front dropside from the crib (you may want or need to unscrew the dropside tracks to remove the actual side) Then screw the toddler rails to the front side of the crib. There should be pre-drilled holes for the toddler rails, if there are not then you may have the mattress support on backwards.

RITA BELLA CRIBS


I have a similar crib by Rita Bella. This is what worked for me.

1. Remove drawer.
2. Face crib's drop-side.
3. On left side of crib (based on you facing the drop-side) locate two allen head screws close to you. Unscrew them. A piece of wood in the front will drop. This is normal.
4. Push left side of crib outward (about 1/4") until you can see the metal pin that controls the locking function of the drop-side. It is near the bottom.
5. Pull out the bottom part of the drop-side so it's not in the plastic groove area anymore. This should get the right side out as well.
6. Tilt the drop-side -- the bottom part should swing toward you. When it is completely tilted, you will see the wooden groove in the side of the crib, and you can then remove the drop-side pretty easily.
7. Replace the screws. You may need an extra pair of hands to get all the parts in place.
8. Replace the drawer.
