PREPARATION
Carefully remove and lay out all hardware and parts. Remove wires securing Stabilizer Bar J and Crib Rods K to Crib Spring R. Check quantities and
match to the Parts Lists. If a part is missing or broken contact your dealer or Child Craft, P.O. Box 444, Salem, IN 47167-0444 USA (812) 8833111,service@childcraftind.com for a replacement part or instructional literature. Before making this contact identify your crib. Model Identification number
is stamped on the underneath side of bottom rail of either a crib end N/O or a crib side P/Q or stamped on the label attached to the inside face of Footboard
O bottom rail. Include this number with your request for a part or literature. Record the Model Identification number now: #_______________________________.
STEP 1 - DIAGRAM 1: ATTACH 4-POSITION SPRING HANGER BRACKET
Note the two piece assembly of the 4-Position Spring Hanger Brackets D
& S (with lip). Before attachment to crib (ends) N & O be sure the moulded
plastic backer is aligned with the 4-Position Spring Hanger Bracket D & S
as shown. These items are shipped assembled, in the unlikely event they
should become detached during shipment, simply take the plastic backer and
align with the holes in the metal bracket then snap together to create an
assembly as shown in Parts Diagram and Diagram 1. IMPORTANT! All
four plastic tabs on each moulded plastic backer should project toward the
S. If you should find
metal hooks on 4-Position Spring Hanger Brackets D/S
a tab on an uninstalled 4-Position Spring Hanger Bracket D or S not so
projected simply use a screwdriver to push tab forward until it contacts the
metal hook. If a plastic tab is not projected on an installed 4-Position Spring
S simply place a small slotted screwdriver underneath
Hanger Bracket D/S
the plastic tab and pull forward until it contacts the metal hook. Attach 4Position Spring Hanger Brackets D & S with lip) and Angle Brackets T to
both Headboard N& Footboard O using Slotted/Phillips Wood Screws E,
to be positioned exactly as shown in Diagram 1. DO NOT REMOVE 4S, ANGLE BRACKETS T OR

STEP 5 - DIAGRAM 5: INSTALL SPRING HANGERS & CRIB SPRING
Locate Crib Spring R, (with plastic pouch factory attached),
and the four Spring Hangers B, refer to Diagram 6, and 5.
Note: Be sure smooth side of Crib Spring R wire is placed
upward as illustrated in Diagram 6. Also the printing on the
plastic pouch (attached to crib spring) will be placed upward.
Insert Spring Hangers B into each bracket attached to frame
of Crib Spring R as shown, (a light blow with a hammer may
be required to fully engage Spring Hangers B). Carefully
install Crib Spring R by placing each of the 4 Spring Hanger
B into a selected position in each of the four 4-Position Spring
Hanger Brackets D & S , (with moulded plastic backers),
mounted on ends O and N. See Diagram 6, and 5. Note:
The lip of the moulded plastic backer will allow the Spring
Hanger to be placed with no difficulty. However, when you
decide on another placement of Crib Spring R you will need
to place your thumbnail, or a small screwdriver, on the lip of
the moulded plastic backer and hold down in order to raise
Spring Hanger B from its present position. Follow this same
procedure whenever you decide to change Crib Spring R to
another of the four positions.

Locate Crib Rods K, Dropside Q (with Gate Shoes C attached), Comperssion Springs F,
Bumper Springs G and the two remaining Slotted/Phillips Machine Screws A. Insert a Crib Rod
K downward through the holes in the following sequence: (Refer to Diagram 6 for proper placement.)
(1.) The top rail of Dropside Q , (with plastic teething rail), (Note: Gate Shoes C will be placed to inside),
(2.) The L-Bracket on 4-Position Spring Hanger Bracket S,
(3.) A Compression Spring F,
(4.) Bottom Rail of Dropside Q,
(5.) A Bumper Spring G,
(6.) Hole in Angle Bracket T.
Place a Slotted/Phillips Machine Screw A into hole in top of Crib Rod K and into receiving bushing located in top corner post of Footboard O/Headboard
N . DO NOT USE A POWER SCREWDRIVER OF ANY TYPE TO TIGHTEN SCREW A. Start Screw A (two or three turns) with your fingers into
its threaded bushing to insure Screw A has a square fit. Once you are sure Screw A fits squarely into its threaded bushing, tighten securely with
a hand held (non-power driven) screwdriver. Refer to Diagram 6 for proper placement. Attach another Crib Rod K to the other end of Dropside Q,
following the same procedure. Be sure Slotted/Phillips Machine Screw A is tightened securely, check periodically and tighten if needed. Tip: To help
Crib Rods K function more quietly we suggest you rub the crib rod with waxed paper or paraffin. You may want to repeat this procedure periodically.
