Parts and Hardware for a 1974 Jenny Lind Baby Crib

I am looking for the missing parts and hardware for a 1974 Jenny Lind baby crib. The crib has been in storage for a very long time and some pieces have either been lost of misplaced over the years but what is left looks really good and I would like to use it in the nursery that I'm working on before the baby is delivered.

The frame and the hardware that is attached to the frame are all of the pieces that I currently have to work with on this crib.

How to Make a 1970s Drop Side Crib Safe
by: Anonymous

I have a Jenny Lind crib built in the 1970s I am trying to remodel too. I am not sure why people seem to be putting so much emphasis on a "ban" when we obviously want to make the Jenny Lind crib we have as safe as possible.

The whole drop side thing doesn't even make sense to me and it would be much better taken out, which I want to do.

The rolling wheels are coming off and I want to replace all parts with all brand-new hardware with no drop-down functionality and the bedding rack will be movable but much more sturdy than what it is now.

I am relatively sure someone more handy than myself has done all of the above and can help walk the rest of us through the procedure.

Please, if you are there and see this, please take a minute to let the rest of us know what you did and how you went about it!

Jenny Lind Drop Side Crib

If I reading this correctly what you have described is a drop side crib. I see that you mention that the year that the bed was manufactured was 1974 which means that the bed may not be up to code with current safety standards even if it were not a drop side. You don't mention what brand your crib is but it really doesn't make any difference since they were all banned. The drop side crib ban was announced in 2011 and all of them were included. They were all banned and deemed a safety hazard, every model and every brand, bar none.

I believe that some moms and dads have had some success in making these beds safe by buying parts that will fix the problem but I'm not sure where they got them or if the cribs are safe after they are installed.
