Hole in Pack 'N Play Mesh

Hole in Pack 'N Play Mesh

Postby Bubbles on Thu Aug 28, 2008 12:23 pm

What to do?

4yo dd was entertaining the baby while he was in the P 'N P and put a hole in the mesh. Just a small hole, about the diameter of a 4 year old's index finger. I have looked online and even emailed Graco, but have not found any solution to the problem. Here's the response I got from Daniela at Graco:

Unfortunately, the mesh on the pack n play is not repairable or
replaceable on any model.

Have a great day!


Thank you,

Daniela - Consumer Services


isn't it nice that she tells me to have a great day after she tells me there is no solution to my problem?

Anyway, has anyone done their own repair? Any ideas? I thought of getting strong thread (like carpet thread) and patching up the hole. I just don't want it to get bigger and for it to be a portal for escape or injury.

I would just sew it up too, but with regular thread. Thick string might call attention to it resulting in it becoming bigger or lose.

I do think that your carpet thread idea is a good one, though I admit I've never had to patch a mesh hole before. I have had to patch a net before, and i used heavy thread and it works fine.

Good Luck! Let me know if it works. Sorry I wasn't more help :(

I suggest building a sturdy crate instead.

my first thought is duct tape. :lol: then i thought about it and figured duct tape may not be too safe. I would just sandwich the mesh between 2 pieces of some kind of nontoxic tape.

I would use quilting thread. It is very sturdy and comes in all colors so you could match it to your mesh. You would want something stronger than regular thread. You could after you have mended the tear, get two symmetrical iron ons and disguise the mend--you know, one inside and one outside.

If those ideas don't work, let me know. I have two Graco Pack N Plays that my girls have recently outgrown. I'd be happy to share.

I would have flipped, its not like those things are cheap by any means!

Quilting thread works great for those repairs in need of something more heavy duty. Just dont sew it too tight for risk of making some of those other mesh holes bigger.

I'd put fray check on it and forget about it unless it starts to get bigger.
