We have this crib as well. We bought it from Babys R' Us in 2005.
We also purchased the rails to convert it to a full sized bed. It did not come with instructions but I can explain to you how to put it together.

The rail conversion set should come with 2 pieces of wood that act as the bed frame. You do not need to purchase the extended frame. The set should also come with 4 long screws, the hex tool to tighten it and 4 metal pieces. You might also have some wood nail cover plugs.

Once you've taken apart your crib, the only pieces that you will need are the 2 longer pieces of the crib...the headboard and the footboard. The 2 shorter side pieces which served as a headboard and footboard as a crib and the metal grate to hold up the mattress can be put into storage.

On the sides of each of the new wood rails, you will see a circle indent on each end with a hole. You will insert one of the long screws into each and then insert it into the head board. You must use the special tool to screw/ tighten it in. The metal flat pieces can be inserted into it the circle befor eyou are done tightning so that it does not strip or damage the end of the circle. You do this with the other rail on the other end and then add the footboard using the same process. If you would like, I can send you a copy of what this looks like close up. ( the cricle indent with screws. The bed is extremely strong. We've all napt in it as a family along with our 2 large dogs. I highly recommend ordering the extra long/ tall bed rails from OneStepAhead for security because my son has rolled out of the bed and it is super tall!

Bassett crib model 5530-0621 purchased in 2007- how to convert to day bed? Currently have it set up as a crib


If you don't have the rails to convert, Bassett discontinued the crib in2008. You can convert it using a standard metal (bolted) frame found in mattress or furniture stores. I called customer service today and found this information. 7/15/2013

We have a Morigeau-Lepine convertable crib-day bed-full size bed, but we are missing the instructions to convert it to the full-size. It's model number is DA722-BC & the model is somewhere between...


I can't offer the exact answer, but hopefully my suggestions will be helpful...

Converting the crib to a full-size bed should actually be a fairly simple process of detaching the 4 sides that make the crib, and replacing the 2 short sides with the full-size bed rails that were sold separately in a conversion kit. The 2 long sides of the crib become the headboard and footboard of the full-size bed.

Unfortunately, it's only a simple process if you already have the full-size conversion kit bed rails. And since Morigeau-Lepine went out of business, they aren't making any more conversion kits. If you don't have the full-size bed rails, then this could be quite difficult.

It's possible that some stores that used to sell Morigeau-Lepine cribs might still have a conversion kit hidden somewhere in the back of their stock room or warehouse. You could try calling around to a few of your local stores to ask if they would check for you. It's a long shot, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

If you have the rails, or are lucky enough to find them, then it should be as simple as locating the screws that hold the crib sides together, removing them (most likely with an appropriatly sized hex-key,) and putting the screws back through the headboard and footboard into the bed rails. (I'm really just assuming that it works the same as the Babi Italia conversion.) If no screws are visible, or if removing them doesn't detach the crib sides, then they are probably also held together with locking bed rail fasteners. To release the fasteners, remove any visible screws, then push upwards on the short side rail while pushing down on the long side rail. You might have to tap the rail up with a rubber mallot to get it moving.

If you don't have the full-size bed rails, and you can't find them anywhere, your only option may be to build them yourself, or find a woodworker to build them for you. Search online for "Bed Rail Fasteners" and you'll see several options for hardware, but they might require modifying the headboard and footboard as well. Full-size matresses are 75 inches long, so you'll want the length of your rails to accomodate (ours are 77 inches long.)

I hope I've been helpful. Good luck!

Model Number: 5542-O521 Does this convert?


It does not convert to a toddler bed. I had a custom front piece made to make one. With on the side rails and no front legs, it's only useful initially as a baby bed. I am now looking to fond the side rails to make a double bed out of it myself. I'll look for the name somewhere and try to post it for model 5542-O521.

HOW DO I ACTUALLY CONVERT A 3 in 1 CRIB TO A BED?


I have two children and I changed their beds from the cribs to the day beds by taking the front or footboard part off.  You have to save this part because in order to change it from the day bed to a full bed, you have to buy a siderail kit, take the sides off, and attach the siderails to the headboard and footboard.  Hope this helps!
