Jenny Lind Drop Side Crib Parts

by Nikki

Is there a resource online with Jenny Lind drop side crib parts for sale? Or does anyone have instructions for how I can fix the side of the crib so that it will stay up?

Instructions regarding drop side cribs

I have a Jenny Lind heirloom style crib that has the drop down side with the metal rods and springs.

I have gotten the bed assembled but I can't get the side to stay in place and I think that I may be missing the part that keeps it up.

If I could look see a picture of the assembly or understand how it's supposed to stay up I ight be able to fix the problem.

I bought the crib used and it didn't come with instructions.

From the webmaster of Unique Baby Gear Ideas:

Nikki, could you take a picture of the drop side of the crib from several angles and upload them to see if someone can tell you what's missing?

And if you could tell us the model number, brand or any other details regarding the crib someone may be able to scan a picture and and send it to you or tell you which (if any) Jenny Lind Drop Side Crib Parts that are missing and that you should be looking for.

We just bought Jenny Lind crib and we are missing the parts for the drop side rail to hold it up and allow it to slide up and down. Can you help on where to get these parts?

My daughter's crib is also a Jenny Lind drop style crib. It happens to be the same one I used 30 years ago. To precent the side from dropping, we used a clear tubing to hold the side up. So, when you are threading the metal rod from top to bottom, it goes through the top of the crib's side, next through the metal guide attached to the head/foot end, next through the bottom of the side panel, and it was at this point that we threaded a piece of clear plastic tubing onto the metal rod before threading the rod through the last metal guide attached to the head/foot end. We purchased the 16 inches (8 inches for each metal rod) at our local hardware store. This plastic tubing is rigid enough to keep the drop side from dropping, and its safe because that metal rod is screwed in and the plastic tubing is held in place by the wood and metal on either end of it. Hope this helps.
