Be very careful with "Decorative heirloom" style cribs. The CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commision)
at warns that older cribs may be dangerous and not up to current safety standards.
If you look hard enough at flea markets and 2nd hand stores you may find the mattress support but
your crib may put your grandchild's life in danger. It is just not worth it when you can buy a new crib for about $100. If you can fit a soda can thru the slats on a crib, it is dangerous. You only get one life, one child's life and it isnt worth risking. Be safe and I hope you find a safe conclusion.

Heirloom 6005 won't do decorative stitches or zig.....

I found out the hard way. If your machine just refuses to do any zig zag or decorative stitches..check the Twin Needle Key. I replaced the mother board at a cost of $400 and then found out that was the problem.

Kincaid Carriage House Sleigh Bed side rail split

This can happen if the bed is not securely fastened together. The headboard/footboard shouldn't be able to shake without moving whole bed.if they do the joints will fatigue and fail from everyday wear and tear weight probably not a factor as the stressor would be vibration of loose joints not weight stress. Is this common? Depends on design. Bed frames that screw tight it is common.frames that snap together not so much as there is nothing to tighten. design flaw seems more possible in that circumstance.

I have a status crib which went bankrupt last year and need to find the bottom that holds the mattress.

I lost my bottom during a move. I fixed it by using a "wood" crib board (that holds the matress) and removing the J hooks, replacing it with strong chain about 6 inches long in place of all 4 J hooks, then using the original bolts, putting it through the end loop of the chain, into the crib to hold it firmly and safely in place. It's working safely and perfectly.

No directions to assemble a Simmons crib model 2746 76 219

Most of the cribs that you buy have directions on the bottom of the mattress board on how to assemble. They might not be word for word, but its pretty informative. Hey, it does have pictures! LOL

Instructions To Convert Jardine Madison Life Time Crib

To convert your crib to a Full Size bed you will need to purchase a set of full size bed rails (hook style for headboard and foot board). You can find this at any discount mattress store, or furniture outlet, it can range in price from $39.99 - $99.99. To install the rails you will see slots with bars on the headboard/footboard, this is where the hooks on the rails slide into. There are no bolts used to secure the rails to the headboard/footboard.

Jardine enterprises does not make a wood rail kit as was shown in some of the earlier ads for the Madison line of convertible cribs, and do not waste your time ordering the rail kit from Babies-R-Us as it is simply a metal rail kit (which you may be able to get cheaper at a local furniture/mattress store).

Use the lower daybed rail between the two front posts for the foot board. Another option for the full-size conversion is to purchase the metal rails (hook style) for a headboard only and not even bother with a foot board.

If you are still unsure of what you need to do for the full-size conversion please feel free to email me at

I am not familiar with this crib, but I have been through many cribs and they all (so far) are adjustable to lower the mattress. You can figure it out by removing the mattress and matress board and inspecting the way the board is connected to the frame. Often there is a bar or rung that sits in a clip or groove at each corner of the crib just below the matress board. You may have to crawl underneath and look up at it. Usually you will be able to lower the platform without using tools, but be sure to take the weight off the platform by removing the mattress and board. Good luck.
