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

The recalls are because of a lot of problems with the side rail latches. According to the CPSP and comments from different people on here, The Simplicity company is not fully operating and the phone #'s for them are not connected so you cannot obtain repair kits from them anymore.

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 receipt 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.

Need assembly manuel for Jenny Lind 012614 where can I find it online?? Every website takes me to another I am very frustrated....didn't think it would be such a ordeal to locate a manuel online???? Is...


Evenflo Jenny Lind Crib has been recalled.

When you call to get the kit to fix the problem (800) 356-2229 you could ask Evenflo directly!

Here are instructions without a manual...

1. Lay the headboard on the floor in front of you with the bracket holes and model number facing you. Use 2 ¾-inch wood screws to attach the L-bracket and the latch bracket to headboard. The L-bracket has 3 holes and attaches to the holes on the lowest section of the headboard. The latch bracket only has 2 holes and goes directly beneath the metal bracket for the mattress that is already attached. It should face toward the center of the headboard. Once you're done, complete the same procedure on the right side of the headboard. Then do the same for the footboard.

2. Stand the headboard up so you can attach the rails to it. First, place the cross dowel (the small piece of wood with a hole in the side of it) into the hole on the underside of the top rung of the rail. Then put a second dowel in the top side of the bottom rung. Line the left rail up with the headboard at a 90-degree angle, placing it in the brackets you just installed, and insert a 2 13/16-inch machine screw into each of the 2 holes on the front side of the headboard (the side that will face outward). Tighten each screw with your screwdriver until it hits the cross dowel. Then turn the cross dowel clockwise to lock it in. Do the same for the right side and then for the footboard.

3. Slide the mattress platform (the bottom of the crib) into the stabilizer rails (easy to distinguish, since they are the same size as the sides of the platform), putting the longer ones on the sides and the shorter ones on the ends. It will slide in easily. Use 5 ¾-inch screws to attach the hanger brackets to the corners of the platform. The holes are predrilled and you can only put the bracket on one way to match them up, so there is little worry that you will attach it wrong.

4. Put the support brackets (the straight, flat ones) on top of the predrilled holes in the underside of the stabilizer rails. Screw them in with ¾-inch wood screws. Then place the hanger brackets in the slots that were preinstalled on the headboard and footboard. Choose the level that will suit you best. Evenflo recommends the top two for infants.

5. Snap a caster (the round disc) on the bottom of each foot of the crib. Check that all your screws are tight to keep your baby safe.

How do you put up a graco pack play


Hi, to set up the pack and play, first latch each of the four sides together. (Each side rail latches together in the middle -- just straighten the rail.) Once all four sides are locked and straight, push down on the center of the pack and play bottom (it's probably red) until it snaps into place.

To fold the pack and play up, just follow these instructions in reverse -- pull the bottom up first, then press in the button on each side rail to fold up each side.

Always make sure the pack and play is completely set up and locked before putting a child in it!

I need to know where to buy assembly tracks for Cosco crib.


I just posted a similar answer to another person looking for hardware for an older crib. PLEASE do not use this crib. Any crib with hardware missing is an accident waiting to happen. Even if you were to find the tracks, if you are screwing those tracks into wood, then the screws will not be as secure as the original ones and can and will get loose and back-out of the wood. If that happens and the track comes loose, that corner of the drop side can come off which creates a death trap for your baby. A crib is the ONLY place a parent can safely leave their infant alone. So you want to make sure you have the crib in the safest condition. This means all original parts, nothing broken, bent, cracked or repaired. Too many babies die each year because parents attempt to repair or fix a crib with missing parts.

Drastic Need for 2 Upper Tracks...


if you have the conversion kit for the crib to convert to a toddler bed, you should also have the white caps that go one the end of the guard rails for the toddler bed. I found with mine that they are the same ones as that are on the stationary side of the crib on the back side. if you do not mind having a crib with out a drop side you can remove both tracks and take those pieces and make it a stationary crib by merely following the way the rear side is put together. I have done it with mine as a guide was broken on mine. there should be four caps in the conversion kit that go on the two rails on the front side when you convert to a day bed. I figured out that they are the same as the ones on the back because you do actually use the ones off of the back side when you make it a toddler bed and put all four rail on.

Childesigns crib part needed


I have the same problem and I spoke to www.productsamerica.com at 1-800-772-1041 this morning and they said that the childesign is no longer in production as far as they know and no parts available. They also said no repair kits available will fit it. I am stomped as to whether I should just go out and buy another crib now.
