We have a hand-me-down crib that has a drop side and I'd like to sell it but I'm wary of re-distributing a recalled crib. FWIW, We never used it because our first foster placement was much older than crib age and we're doing some purging as we get ready to move. I'm not prepared to move furniture for theoretical future children.
It definitely has drop sides. I'm guessing it is five or six years old. It's last tenant is four now, and I know it was given to her parents by another family. So it predates the drop-side ban. But I put my whole weight on the drop side and it didn't budge. So it seems sturdy to me. And the CPSC's poster about crib safety says "Prohibit traditional drop sides" but actually shows the exact mechanism that this crib uses:
Are there some drop-side cribs that are safe? Or should I be throwing this out/selling it only as a toddler bed?
PS. I did read What should I look for in a crib?
