Kolcraft light vibes rocking bassinet

The bassinet was given to me for my grandchild by a friend and I do not have instructions or know how to put it together. The lady that passed it to me threw away the box and instructions.

    We just forgot how to assemble it . Directions may be around, in garage. We think we almost got it, but can't remember if fabric piece goes inside or outside of outside 'arch' wires. Thanks.

Has it been recalled?

Doesn't look like your model was recalled, but you could always contact the manufacturer to confirm since the baby's safety is your priority. Below is an article I found with the affected serial numbers.
Kolcraft bassinets recalled due to fall dangers Consumer Reports News: May 09, 2012 04:38 PM

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a safety recall for certain bassinet models made by Kolcraft Enterprises Inc., of Chicago, Ill. The Kolcraft Tender Vibes and Light Vibes bassinets have locking latches which may fail and cause the bassinets to fall, possibly injuring a child inside.
The CPSC and Kolcraft have received seven reports of latches detaching from the bassinet frame. In one of those incidents, one infant received a bruised cheek when the bassinet fell from its metal frame and landed sideways on the floor with the infant inside.
Consumer Reports experts note in our buying guide to bassinets that for now, there are no federal guidelines for those pieces of infant furniture other than safety standards for such items as small parts and rough edges. So, a baby crib-which must meet federal safety standards-is the safest place for a sleepy infant say our experts. (For more information, see Crib alternatives to avoid and Safe-sleeping tips in Consumer Reports' Babies & kidssection.)
This current recall involves about 46,000 Kolcraft bassinets which were sold at mass market and independent juvenile specialty stores nationwide and online from July 2008 through May 2012. The recalled Kolcraft Tender Vibes bassinets include model numbers KB021-ARC, KB022-VER and KB039-CMR1 and the Kolcraft Light Vibes bassinet recall is limited to model number KB043-BNT1. (Model numbers are printed on a label located on the side of one of the metal frame legs of Kolcraft bassinets.)

How do I put together my kolcraft basinet

Hello New Grandparents. I hope that you were able to resolve your issue before the baby came for a visit.

I am not sure about the extra parts without more info or images, but the bars and hooks should have been metal bars that were attached to the inner top bar of the bassinet side rail. After you raise the side, they are free to move to the hooks that are screwed into the hard pressboard bottom. Pic is attached from the manual. You would have to lift the fabric up to see these pieces. Perhaps that was the issue during assembly.

Google 'Kolcraft' & there should be a customer service number listed... Call them & tell them what you need... They should be able to let you know if that part is still available, & all the details...
I had that bassinet when my son was born & I LOVED IT! Wish I still had the thing you need, but I gave ours away =(

BUT Good luck!
