As of Tuesday June 28th, new federal safety requirements ban the sale or manufacture of drop-side cribs. All cribs manufactured in the US must now meet the most stringent safety standards in the world. In addition to fixed side gates, the new rules require that cribs must have stronger slats and mattress supports and higher quality hardware. Here at Newport Cottages, we take these changes very seriously. We pride ourselves in holding our custom-crafted USA-made furniture to the strictest safety standards. We build our cribs to be fully compliant with these new CPSC safety standards. If you have purchased a crib from us in the past two years with a fixed gate, please contact us for a compliance kit which will include lock washers, a warning label and updated assembly instructions. If you have a drop-side crib, purchased more than two years ago, a fixed gate conversion can be purchased for $150, including shipping.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Your baby’s safety is our number one concern.
