Any hardware store. Allen wrenches are usually sold as sets, this way you'll have many different sizes, and one of them will surely be the one you need (just have to know whether metric or standard, or buy both sets).

I lost my manual, I need to know how to transform the crib into a toddler bed



Converting a Simplicity Crib into a Toddler Bed:

Please note, Simplicity has gone out of business and the Simplicity Cribs should NOT be used as cribs. They were sold at Walmart, Target and BabiesRUs. The word on the street is that Walmart is the easiest to deal with when it comes to returning them. Those who wish to return Simplicity cribs don't need a receipt, they can just take them to Walmart for store credit. BabiesRUs was apparently giving about $65 while Walmart was closer to $190. Again, this is just what I have heard from others.

You can find the specific information on the Simplicity recall here.

If you do want to use your Simplicity crib as a Toddler Bed, I have not read any warnings against this. Again, I might just take it to Walmart anyway and get a store credit and perhaps buy a new convertible crib. You can get some great ones on Amazon for around $150 with delivery included.

I would pack it up, take it in for store credit, and get a new crib!

You can get some great deals these days on cribs, there's a great one on Amazon for $150 with free shipping so it's kind of a no-brainer.


As I have heard, Walmart will take it back, no questions asked and no receipt necessary and you can get a brand new one with brand new parts, brand new instructions and no recalls or risks!

Good Luck.

Here's one of my favorites:

If you still want to convert it, here is what you need to do:

1. Remove the front panel of the Simplicity crib. Use an Allen wrench and 45mm bolts (there should be extras underneath the crib, along with an Allen wrench, but if there aren't then you can pick some up at your local hardware store.)

2. Check the mattress support. It needs to be in the lowest position available, which will allow the toddler to get in and out of bed easily. It is also the only position that will make the rails line up properly with the pre-drilled bolt holes. To lower the mattress, unscrew the four bolts from the four corners of the mattress support and slide the support down. The holes for the lowest setting are just about the bottom wood panels. Use your Allen wrench to reattach the mattress support with the same bolts you pulled out when the mattress was in the higher position.

3. Attach the toddler bed rails to the crib frame. Use two 38mm Allen bolts on each rail. There are pre-drilled holes in both the rail and the crib frame. Line up the holes and then loosely screw the bolts into place. The bottom of each rail has a metal L-shaped hook. This will slide under the mattress support. Use a 19mm Allen bolt to attach this piece to the mattress support. When everything is lined up and screwed in loosely, go back and tighten each bolt. Repeat on the other side.

4. Check the entire crib frame for loose bolts. Use the Allen wrench to tighten all the screws. Toddlers can be rough on their beds, so it is important to make sure the bed is safe. You should recheck for loose bolts often. Jumping and climbing on the bed can easily loosen the bolts and screws.

5. Don't forget to hang onto the front panel and store it carefully, you will need it later to convert the bed into a full sized bed.

I need the small tool to disassemble a crib. How can I get one?


The tool you are looking for is a Hex key or Allen wrench. You can purchase a replacement tool at hardware stores and home centers.
There are different sizes. Before going to purchase the tool, you should note the size you need. You can trace the opening on a piece of paper; or using a pencil do a 'rubbing' on a piece of paper.

Convet morigeau lepine crib to a toddler bed


Use the allen wrench that came with the crib to slightly loosen the two bolts on the moveable gate side (bottom) then shimmy the sliding gate out of the tracks. I did it myself with verbal directions from the store - should be easy.

I lost my instrction manual!


Step 1: Detach the front panel from the 2 front post using an allen wrench
Step 2: If the mattress support is not in the lowest position unscrew the bolts and move it to the lowest position
Step 3: Using the allen wrench, attach the guard rail using 4 bolts between the lest and right front post (the guard rail would be that extra piece that you couldn't do anything with while the bed was converted to a crib. Looks kinda like a wooden board)
Step 4: Tighten all screws and put the crib mattress back in

I NEED SCREWS!!


Ace hardware carries these metric screws. I lost one screw & this was the closest thing I found.. The allen key part is not the same but the thread & the length are perfect- they are about 0.75 each. : )
