I am looking for Hopkins baby crib parts for a Hopkins Crib that was purchased in 1982. I need the 4 Spring Handle Hooks that are necessary to attach and hang the box spring or mattress support to the frame. The part number of the style hook is SH 20.

I found one provider for the replacement part but the price that they are asking is very expensive for a mass produced item.

There would be no tooling or welding involved; it's just metal stock that is bent and threaded on one end. The end that is threaded inserts through a hole in the crib mattress frame and a nut is applied to secure it in place.

I wondered if you or one of the visitors here could put me in touch with another manufacturer who produces this part? If you have questions please refer to the pictures that I have uploaded. I included one of the replacement part and another to show how it fits into the frame of the crib mattress.


This particular Spring Handle Hook is one of only two styles that is used on most baby cribs.

Surely, there has to be more than one manufacturer who produces this particular part but the resource that I mentioned earlier, Products America, seems to have monopolized this market and their prices for Hopkins baby crib parts most likely have a mark 200% up markup.

If anyone has any suggestions for a resource that carries Hopkins baby crib parts can you please contact me using the space below (and PLEASE include your contact information in case I need to get in touch with you!).

SH 20 hooks for a Hopkins crib are overpriced .
by: Lauren

I've searched everywhere and these SH20 hooks and the cost is $20 for 4 hooks which is way too pricey for an old baby bed especially since we got the bed for free.

I am afraid that my husband will just have to get resourceful. He has experience working at a steel plant so I'm pretty sure he can handle it.

SH-20
by: Cheryl

Please let me know if you have found an answer to your problem cause I am having the same problem. My crib is 30 years old. My mother bought it for my daughter & now she wants to use it for her baby. I attempted to get that part from the same company but because I didn't have the name of who made the crib or any other such info they would not sell me what I needed. I mean after 30 years I am sorry the stickers are not still on the crib & you would think they would understand this. Anyways any help would be greatly appreciated.

Probably a machine shop could produce the parts I need but I don't have a sample part. As I mentioned, I need all four. The quote that I was
given for the replacement part $30. with shipping.
I've purchased metal parts in the past and I would guesstimate that the part would be under $2.
each at the most. When you have the market cornered, you charge whatever you can get.

Would it compromise the safety of the crib to take one of the other three hooks to a local metalworking or machine shop to see if someone there could duplicate it exactly?

Just curious, but how much did the resource you mentioned want for the part that you need?
