New Law for Drop-side Crib

Effective October 28th, 2010, NYS enacted a new law that bans the sale of all drop- side cribs. Drop-side cribs have plastic hardware that can break, deform, or parts can become missing. In addition, the drop-side can be installed upside-down, which can result in broken or disengaged plastic parts. All of these problems can cause the drop-side to detach in one or more corners.
