The plastic piece that would enable me to release the side of the crib that drops down has broken. Does anyone know where I might be able to get one? By looking at the pictures I believe the style of the crib is Bellmont...but not sure! Any help would be appreciated...even if somone knows how to contact the company that makes these! I am tired of propping books under the crib to hold the side up! Thanks Maggi
A pretty good idea- screw a 1-1 1/2" wood screw into the bottom of the "keyhole "shaped slot where the plastic trigger assembly would normally latch. Leave the screw head out far enough to catch the drop down rail. This will keep the rail at its regular "up" height. However, this repair will not allow you to drop the rail down. All my research has led me to conclude that the Childesign company no longer exists. my crib is convertible to a child bed so once my guy gets big enough I'll remove the drop down rail completely and eventually part out this crib or burn it!! What a hassle.I sympathize with all of you.
I have the same problem. If anyone who gave up on trying to find parts for this crib, I would like to know if they can sell the part I need that may be available with the one you have in perfect condition, I can consider buying it.

Re: Childesigns crib part needed
Check your crib first to make sure the slats are not more than 2 3/8" (2.375") apart. If they are, a new born can be strangled. Scrap it and get a new crib.
Unfortunately the manufactures don't standardize their hardware so the rarely match.
I also have the same problem and have been unable to find any replacement. I guess I will by a new hardware set and try to replace all hardware on that side of the crib. It might be better than throwing it away.
I have the same problem and I spoke to www.productsamerica.com at 1-800-772-1041 this morning and they said that the childesign is no longer in production as far as they know and no parts available. They also said no repair kits available will fit it. I am stomped as to whether I should just go out and buy another crib now.

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 the mattress is not large enough for a child's head to get trapped.
Childesign is in fact out of business and did not leave any way for their customer's to buy lost or broken parts. Unfortunately, you will find it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to find the part you are looking for.
Me too. I ahso need the plastic "hand release" on the right side. Manufacturer (Generation 2 Worldwide) is out of business and Products America does not have a similar part that will work on this crib. Help! This crib is useless worthless without it. Any Ideas?
You know I just purchased a Childesigns crib from a garage sale thatI thought had everything needed. When I got home, we found it was missing one top plastic rod. Of course nothing will work without that. I found this webpage that sells a VERY similar product.
http://www.productsamerica.com/page65.html. It is not exact, but to be able to use the crib, this was a good option for us. Hope this helps.
