Crib Safety Notifications


At AFG Baby Furniture, you and your family's safety is important to us. AFG Baby offers its customers high-quality products that meet reliability standards - all of our furniture is JPMA Certified.


CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) offers the following advice to consumers:

  • Check your crib periodically to ensure that all parts are secure and in good condition. Always check all sides and corners of the crib for disengagement. Any disengagement can create a gap and entrap a child.
    Please visit CPSC website for more details.

  • Do not attempt to repair any damages, flaws or problems with any piece of furniture intended for children; especially with tape, wire, rope or non-factory approved fastening methods.

  • Do not use any furniture, especially cribs with missing, broken, or loose parts.

  • CPSC recently released a new mandate that if you are missing or lose any screws to discontinue use of the crib immediately. Do not attempt to repair or fix cribs without approved manufacturer instructions. Please contact us by phone: (323) 722-6268 or email us: service@afgbabyfurniture.com immediately for assistance.

  • If you are experiencing any problems with assembly, please do not hesitate to contact us for simplified assembly instructions.

  • Repeated assembly and disassembly may cause the product's safety specifications to change.

  • AFG strongly recommends against using old cribs, second-hand cribs, or cribs purchased at a garage sale, as they may not meet current standards.

  • Make sure to tighten hardware to keep the furniture sturdy, and to periodically check the tightness of the connectors.

  • The mattress you choose should fit the dimensions of the crib exactly. If you can fit two fingers between the mattress and the crib frame, the mattress is too small, and therefore unsafe for baby.

  • When using a drop-side crib, parents should check and make sure the part operates smoothly.

  • Please contact AFG customer service by phone: (323) 722-6268, or by email at: service@afgbabyfurniture.com if you have any concerns. In order to expedite service and ensure your product is meeting the latest regulations, please have your receipt and/or order information ready.

  • Please note that despite all efforts to manufacture the product to meet and exceed government safety standards upon proper assembly, it is up to the end consumer to ensure that the product is working safely and within specifications with use of original manufacturer's equipment. Failure to do so may result in serious injury, bodily harm and/or death. AFG Baby Furniture, its subsidiaries, affiliates, retailers and/or sellers shall be held harmless in the event of any problems arising from improper assembly, makeshift repairs ("jury rigging"), unreported / unrepaired defects, damages caused by external forces, damage beyond normal wear-and-tear, natural disaster, environment within or outside of the house, or any incident that causes the piece of furniture to not operate within factory specifications and tolerances.

  • If you would like to request spring lock washers to increase the durability of your hardware or strength of the mattress support, please send an email to service@afgbabyfurniture.com with "Lock Washer Request" in the subject line.
