Help! I lost the screws to the baby crib. . .

Our 3rd child is on the way and I have misplaced the parts to my 2nd daughters crib. The manufacturer is from Italy and I do not have any info on them. It is a really nice crib so we want to use it. Just wondering if I can permanently put it together with screws and stuff.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

That's funny - I did the same exact thing. Luckily ours was from Canada and there was a phone number on the bottom of the crib, so we were able to order replacement parts. Otherwise I would have engineered some type of permanent fix using spare parts from the work room.

I bet you can get parts sent if you know the mfg's name and do some searches. It only cost us less than $10 to get a bunch of things shipped.

I helped my cousin move last weekend, he lost the allen-key to the crib screws.

What kind of parts did you lose?

Very possible they can be fabricated at a local machine shop. Some may even be able to be replaced by stock parts.

I'm actually a bit shocked that they charge for that sort of thing. It's in everyone's best interest that it be put together right, with the right parts and it costs them almost nothing. Heck, I broke a TV cart once and Bush sent me new pressed wood and new hardware.

No luck on the manufacturer, it's in Italian and the address is not coming up.

I'll try out Home Depot to see if they carry it. I can't even describe what the heck it is.

What is the brand of the crib? Is it a Pali or Ragazzi?

If so, contact one of the local baby/child furniture dealers that carry the brand. They may be able to help you, or refer you to the manufacturer.

Hopefully it's not the brand I first bought: MIBB. Very nice looking crib, generally good quality but one major flaw in contruction (the track for the rails). They stopped exporting to the U.S. and I was stuck. We made sure our next crib was a long-time exporter to the U.S. -- Pali.

Congratulations on the baby on the way!!

Just got back from Home Depot. . .

Cost me $20 in screws, some which I will return, but I was able to find parts similar to the originals!

Thanks for your help!
