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!

How do you lock an Avalon on the move series playpen? Where do I get instructions?


  • These playpens have a safety feature.
  1. First thing is to make sure the center of the playpen is up in the air.
  2. First lock the short side rails. They will click into place.
  3. Now lift up and lock the long set of rails.
  4. Now you want to push the center piece (floor) down all the way.
  5. Now your playpen is set up.
  6. When you go to put it up you will pull the floor up first and then release the side rails.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

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!

How do you set up a pack and play?


Open it part way but do not push the center of the bottom all the way down. Raise each of the side rails and make sure they lock in place in the full up position, When all four side rails are locked in place, push the bottom center all the way down until it locks. Put the the bottom pad in place and secure it with the velcro tabs through the opening in the sides.

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

Kinderkraft crib model 710


On the bottom of the front rail that drops (the drop rail), there are two plastic tension pieces (one at either end) that engage the two fixed, bottom rail slider hardware (the long, narrow pieces screwed top-and-bottom into the lower, inside portion of the tall, upright crib ends). These tension pieces are spring loaded, and the outer edge of each one rides along the outside (i.e., the parent's side) of the two bottom metal rail guides. Their purpose is to supply outward pressure against the lower part of the drop rail - that's what you push against when you press your lower leg upon the bottom of the drop side of the crib to lower it. They insure that when up, the drop side locks safely into place. I suspect these tension pieces are your problem. It sounds like they are improperly installed. Good luck.
