Product Details

Product name Stralighter cribs
Description The "Stralighter" crib is a non-full size baby crib made of plastic and has hinged fold-down side rails. 
Problem When the top half of the side rail is folded down, the lower half of the side rail presents a picket fence configuration in which the baby's neck may become entrapped resulting in asphyxiation. In addition to the entrapment hazard, the baby may fall out of the crib and sustain injury as a result of improper crib side height. The side rail in its lowest position is below the top of the mattress in its highest position, making it possible for the baby to fall out of the crib. 
Distribution Sold at retail stores nationwide.
