Question about Cosco Beatrix Potter Playard Crib
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
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.
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 center piece has to be in a unlocked posistion for the sides to lock just pull up firmly on the side while the center is in a unlocked posistion

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."
