View Full Version : Warning about Steelcraft portacot
I was at Target today returning something and the woman next to me was returning a Steelcraft portacot because it had collapsed on the baby while the baby was in it!!! :eek: :eek: :eek: The saleswoman was very helpful and said very calmly that this was the third one that they had had returned to them for the same reason. I butted in and commented on how outrageous this was and had they reported it and she said that they had heard nothing back from Steelcraft yet.
So - if you are looking at buying one, maybe rethink the decision and if you have one - be careful!
I bought a Steelcraft 4 wheeler pram when I had my daughter 2 years ago. The wheels kept falling off when I was pushing my daughter around so I brought it back to the shop where I bought it from and demanded a refund because it was not safe. The store gave me credit and I bought a Jeep 3 wheeler which is so much better.
I'll keep that in mind when I go to buy a portacot.
I was thinking of buying the steelcraft 3 in 1 portacot form target...I don't think I will now.
Thanks for the warning :)
what model was it? i recently bought a steelcraft 'arctic ice' portacot for my niece but now i'm worried that it could hurt her...
I have a 3 year old Steelcraft portacot and it had toughed it out through much jumping and effort from my DS.
Sounds like maybe it is a particular model?
Oh goodness, so far our portacot hasn't collapsed!!
I wonder what model it was :/
I have a really old portacot (probably five years older than JAck) and he definately tests it out ...
the only time it has ever even come close to collapsing - was cause I didn't click one of the arms properly (and JAck wasn't in it .. cause I thrash it around beofre I let him in it .. :laughing: )
it must have been a dodgy model - was it ever recalled???
Heavens - the original post on here by me was almost 2 years ago - I am sure that any cots people are buying now are fine and that it was a particular model problem at the time.
:laughing: I hadn't looked at the date of your original post.
