Product name Swyngomatic Converta Cradles
Description The Swyngomatic Converta Cradles are marketed as a 3 in 1 unit which can be used as a cradle, a swing or a carry cradle. The cradle consists of mesh sides with a steel tubular carrying handle which connects to the wind up mechanism. Those cradles which do not have two metal rods supporting the bottom board are affected by this repair program. The Converta Cradles were sold under the trade name "Swyngomatic", models 5900, 5905 and 5970. They were sold by Sears, Roebuck and Company in its catalogue under the "Swyngomatic" name, catalogue i/36361 and 36273; J.C. Penney Company in its catalogue under the trade name "Toddle Time", catalogue #5161, and Montgomery Ward in its catalogue under the trade name "Wynd-A-Matic", catalogue number 5339. 
Problem It has been alleged that there is insufficient support for the cradle's masonite bottom board which may allow infants to fall out of the cradle if the board is not positioned properly during assembly by the purchaser, resulting in injury to the child. 
Distribution Sold in retail stores nationwide, as well as through catalogue orders at Sears, Roebuck and Company, J.C. Penney Company, and Montgomery Ward.
