WARNING:
Failure to follow these warnings and instructions could
result in serious injury or death.
SUFFOCATION HAZARD - To help prevent suffocation and entrapment, use only
the mattress/pad provided by Arm's Reach Concepts, Inc. Never use additional

Trouble Shooting
Arm’s Reach ® Co-Sleeper ® Bassinet assembly
Q.
“I am having trouble getting the upper bar to unlock. The buttons are hard to push in.”
A.
a)
b)
c)
Locate the “dimple” on the end of the right and left elongated spring directly behind
the “press to release” words on the nylon sleeve that cover the tube steel locking bar. (See A)
Gently push in on each spring as you lift and lower the locking mechanism with a short up
and down motion. (see B) By doing this, the locking buttons will “find” their way into the
alignment holes and the upper bar will be unlocked and fold downward. (See C)
Make sure that both bars (right and left) are unlocked. If one side is longer than the other,
then you have not unlocked both bars and the unit will not fold up properly.
Q.
“I am having trouble getting the lower bar to unlock. One of the two bars unlock when I lifted up
on the locked bars but the second one seems to be stuck.”
A.
a)
b)
c)
d)
e)
Make sure all of the upper bars are completely unlocked and folded downward.
Unlock all of the lower locking bars by lifting up on them. Get at least one of the two bars
to unlock on each of the four sides.
Gather the Co-Sleeper Bassinet together as seen in the drawing and lay it on its side
on the floor.
Gently push downward on the Co-Sleeper Bassinet until you feel the second bar unlock
from its locked position.
Repeat this motion on the remaining sides until you are able to fold the unit together so that
the upper four plastic corners are touching each other to form a neat square.
Q.
“I can’t get the plastic hangers off the Co-Sleeper Bassinet’s top bar. They are very tight and
I can’t pull them off.”
A.
Try rotating them off of the upper bar. Instead of trying to pull the hanger straight up, hold
on to the bottom (opposite the hooked end) and slide the hanger along the mash side of
the Co-Sleeper Bassinet in a circular motion. It will peel off the upper rail with little effort.
If you have any questions or need further assistance please call (800) 954-9353.
