• IF THE CRIB SIDES ARE EVER REFINISHED, USE NON-TOXIC MATERIALS.
• WHEN CHILD'S HEIGHT REACHES 35", USE THE YOUTH BED OR REGULAR BED CONFIGURATION.
• IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT ONCE THE CHILD BEGINS CLIMBING IN AND OUT THROUGH THE GATE OPENING, YOU REMOVE THE GATE (as illustrated in youth bed assembly).
• ASSEMBLY INFANT CRIB (use 2 people)
• Figure 1 shows the rod bracket and Figure 2 shows the rod bracket as item "D". Attach two (2) rod brackets to each head and foot board using 8 size "C" screws packed with the "L" shaped rod brackets. Pilot holes for the screws have been pre-drilled in the head and foot board.
• Figure 1. Connect headboard to footboard with stabilizer bars using 8 size "B" bolts and lock nuts. Keyhole slot on end of stabilizer bars goes to the top. NOTE: the stabilizer bars are heavy so it is recommended that your helper balance the unattached end of the bars until they have been secured. The lock nuts will develop resistance after approximately 2 turns as they contact the locking threads.
• To install crib cane rods (Figure 2) inset cane rod through top rail of the dropside (Point A). Each rod is notched to accept the safety lock and this notch should face toward the center of the dropside.
• The cane rod is then inserted through the dropside (Point B). Place the bumper spring over the rod with the largest part of the coil facing up (Point C). While holding up the spring, place the rod through the bottom bracket (Point D). Repeat for all 4 rods.
• Attach crib rods to headboard and footboard panels with bolts, nuts and lock washers (Size A). Follow Figure 2. NOTE: You will have more room to attach nut is dropside is in the lowest position.
• Place box support on stabalizer bars as shown in Figure 1. Place mattress on top of box support. The mattress always remains at this one safe low position.
• General Operation Instructions
Figure 3. To lower a dropdside, disengage the double action button catches by pressing in on the white plastic safety circle and pulling out on the metal pin. Both locks should be operated simultaneously. When raising the dropside, make sure both button catches fit securely in the notches of the crib rods.
Because you have a new crib, the movement of your crib parts may be stiff at first until you have used it. You may want to use some soap or wax to rub on the parts until they are broken in. For instance, your crib rods may not glide smoothly at first and need some lubrication.
TODDLER GATE: To open the toddler door, pull down on the lock located at the top and pull up on the lock located at the bottom. The operation is the same as locks on crib rods. This is not designed for your child to open which is the reason for the double lock. The gate was created for you to open when your child has reached an age when he is learning to walk and can safely climb in and out on his own. This helps eliminate his need to climb over the side and fall out as many children do when they begin to crawl and walk. It is recommended that once the child begins climbing in and out through the gate opening, you remove the gate (as illustrated in the youth bed assembly.
MATTRESS INFORMATION CAUTION
This crib is larger than a standard size crib and cannot be used with a standard size mattress.
Your mattress must be used with your box support.
• YOUTH BED POSITION
4. Carefully separate footboard as shown
In figure 4. Metal dowels hold the footboard together. If top section does not lift off easily, take a flat piece of metal such as a putty knife and start prying the top section up. Do so in an even manner so as not to bind dowels. Protect lower section from damage by placing metal or wood strip over section being pried. Horizontal movement of the top part of the footboard will cause it to break out around the dowels so only move the upper section vertically when removing from lower section. Top section may be left on footboard if you so desire.
5. Remove plastic rail from top section as shown in figure 4 and replace on lower section.
6. Install each youth bed side with 2 “C” size wood screws inserted through the Stabilizer bars and one “D” size screw through the gate end into the headboard. Pilot holes have been drilled from the “C” size screws. It will be necessary to drill
a hold in the gate at Point A for the side “D” screw. This gives the additional support needed for a heavy child. You can adjust the youth bed side fit to the stabilizer bar with washers if needed.
7. Casters should be removed for greater stability.
• YOUTH BED POSITION SIMPLE METHOD
If you do not want to disassemble the footboard and gate dropside, you can remove the gate dropside from the crib and leave the full dropside on the crib in the down position. This leaves one side open for your child to get in and out of the bed. Leaving the full dropside on the crib gives additional support and strength to the youth bed. It is recommended that you remove the wheels from the legs for additional stability and a lower bed height.
