    I've never had a problem with them. Just pull the centre then do the sides.

    Agree. Putting it up - click all sides then push down the base. Putting it down - pull up the base, then click the sides. Do it the other way around and you're going to have problems!

    I am ok with them but DH cannot put them up for the life of him. He was a motor vehicle mechanic and can build lots of things, but portacots are his black bear.

    Don't you have to do the short ends first then the long sides?? There is a knack to it. My dh loses the plot!

    I just left mine half folded in the corner of the room one day and decided that it had to stay there forever as it was a freaking joke to fold back up! Impossible. The next day I found it neatly folded and back in it's box... I asked DH how and he just shrugged! But how did you....???!!! huh?

    I hate our portacot so much. I have never been able to transport it fully dismantled.
