Question about Bassett Baby Gear
I have a similar problem, but a different Simmons crib. I called the company that momof4girls unrecommended and they were VERY helpful, but they were not able to ship me the parts as Simmons discontinued this type of hardware in the early 90's. My crib has a headboard and footboard - the 2 side boards are able to slide up and down on aluminum slats (almost 3 feet long.) The aluminum slats are connected to the headboards with 8 bolts; what I needed to order replacements of are the plastic sliders that allow the sidewalls to go up and down on the aluminum bracket. Not only do they allow it to go up and down, but without them you are not able to assemble the sidewalls to the crib at all. I solved the issue buy purchasing L brackets at Lowes and permanently attaching the sidewalls to the headboard and footboard, but it made it so the sidewalls did not raise or lower. I am ok with that! However, if you do NOT have the aluminum slats, you may be out of luck. The spring for the bed attaches on the aluminum brackets, so even if you were able to bolt the 4 sides together, you still have to figure out a way to attach the spring for the mattress (which connects by sliding a hook into holes on the aluminum bracket... no room for bolts here.) I am rather surprised that the hardware for this crib is plastic and aluminum; the bed is HEAVY and it is very difficult to put together as the aluminum slider is easily bent and the plastic sliders are flimsy. I actually broke the plastic pieces during assembly. No wonder this hardware was discontinued! I called Simmons and asked if they had an "updating' kit... they do not. Good luck!
