You havent given us enough detail. When you say 'Bottom Spring" do you mean the mattress support?
The drop down bars bolt on to the headboard or footboard (one each) and let the dropside move up and down, held in place by the bars. The backside usually has bolts that run thru the head and footboard
to attach them. Some just have small nubs that the top of the backside sit onto and a bolt holds the
bottom of both sides. If you wish to send a picture of what you have for further details, send
it to ozarks333@hotmail.com
I will help you get it right.

Was the delta jasmine luv crib 4852-2 crib on a recall list?


Check Cpsc.gov. If it has a drop side - then yes - I think all Delta drop sides were recalled.

Has my crrib been recalled? its fron jcpenny bright future convertable sleight 343-8200 PTD thank you


Here is a list of the cribs that have been recalled, I did not see your model on the list:

U.S. CPSC Crib Information

Also, the crib is sold under several different names, Modus Furniture is one of them and it's not listed there either.

General rule of thumb is basically that drop side cribs have been determined unsafe. Most manufacturers are providing an immobilization kit voluntarily even if their crib was not recalled. My crib is from Pottery Barn, wasn't listed on the site but they are sending out kits anyway.

If your crib is a drop side crib, I would call JC Penney to see if they are providing kits....but the answer to your question is no, it has not; but it may be in the future so I would investigate getting a kit through JC Penney.

The manufacturers are not asking for proof of purchase (many folks buy second hand cribs), they are only asking for the information on your crib.

One of the stops on the drop down right side has broken off. Can I get a replacement?


This along with many many of the drop sidecribs our there has been recalled due to problems with the drop-side detaching on these cribs.

Here is a link to the CPSC recall on that includes the 8740 crib.

According to the info the company is most likely our of business and no longer sending out repair kits.

If you know where you purchased it, then check to see if they will take it back.

We has purchased ours a wal-mart about 8 years ago and we took ours to a local walmart (different state then we had bought it at) last summer and recieved a full refund without the original reciept. Because it was an older one and wal-mart was not listed in the CPSP report the Customer Service clerk did have to work a little harder at finding it in there system, but once she did it was not an issue at all. I don't know if all retail stores are a good about refunds on recalled products, but they might be.

If you can't remember where you bought it then check with your local wal-mart and see if they carried it since it's a recalled item.

As a last resort, you could screw the drop-sides in and use it as a non-drop-side crib to continue it's use.

Graco 3-in-1 crib instructions


Check this CPSC link.

Most if not all of the simplicity brand cribs have been recalled reguardless of whether they had wood or metal mattress supports.

There were 2 different recalls on the wood version but both were recalled for the drop-side issues.

This link specifically includes the Aspen 3 in 1 cribs and model #: 8740

We took ours to our local walmart last summer (we purchased it in a different state almost 8 years ago). I brought to cpsc report with me. They had not issue with the recalled information we has matching it to our crib. It did take the clerk a bit to find our crib in their system because it was older, but once she did we recieved a full refund, without a receipt.

As far as changing them to a toddler bed. When we converted ours to a toddler bed we simply removed the drop-side from the crib. The drop-side parts can be unscrewed from the side rails. Then we screwed the toddler rails to the bottom of the crib. Ours had screw holds for the toddler rails on the mattress support. If you do not have the holes for it, then you may have put the mattress support on backwards ie with the side that has the holes for the toddler bed rails on the backside of the crib.

Crib recall need to see if mine is on list


No. The cribs being recalled are made by StorkCraft but any crib with a drop side that has plastic parts could pose a problem. Make sure the side latches securely and that the space between the side and themattress2_bing.gif is not large enough for a child's head to get trapped.
This recall involves Stork Craft drop-side cribs and Stork Craft drop-side cribs with the Fisher- Price logo. This recall does not involve any cribs that do not have a drop-side. This recall does
not involve any cribs with metal rod drop-side hardware2_bing.gif. It involves only those cribs with plastic
trigger and one-hand-system drop-side hardware.
This recall includes Stork Craft cribs with manufacturing and distribution dates between January
1993 and October 2009. This recall also includes Stork Craft cribs with the Fisher-Price logo that
have manufacturing dates between October 1997 and December 2004. The Stork Craft cribs with
the Fisher-Price logo were first sold in the U.S. in July 1998 and in Canada in September 1998.

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 crip (you may want or need to unscreen the dropside tracks to remove the actual side) Then screw the toddler rails to the front side of the crip. There should be pre-drilled holes for the toddler rails, if there are not then you may have the mattress support on backwards.
