Rails were delivered within two days and looks great. In some ways, I expected more for the price rather than two wooden side bars and bolts. I knew that the kit would come with no slats but it would have been nice if Kalani (MDB) had designed the crib so that it could accommodate a mid beam and include that with the the kit.
Fixing the rails is relatively straightforward. Requires a bit of dis-assembly but 30 mins or so and I had the crib converted to the full size bed frame. My wife and I read to our son before he goes to bed so it was imperative that we get some slats or a box spring to support our weight.
First stop was the local Ikea store to see if I could get slats for the frame but unfortunately all the full sized slats require a beam in the middle so it was a no go. I decided to get a little creative and went to Home depot and got 8 1x3" boards and had them cut it down to the exact width (52 1/4"). This leaves a 1/4" gap to the side rails. Next, I ordered ~10 yards of 1" white nylon ribbon from Amazon and used a staple gun to staple the wooden slats at 9" intervals on both sides. The idea was this will keep the slats from sliding outwards on the frame. For the first and last slats, I nailed in plastic spacers to prevent the slats/nylon ribbon from compressing towards the center. The whole assembly is now quite taut and hopefully work well. Total cost for the slats + nylon assembly ~$40. I have added a couple of images.
The hardware that came with it was EXACTLY what was needed and it went together in a few minutes! (note: they use the SAME bolts and barrel locks as the mini crib so if you lose something you already have it.
My 2yr old LOVES his new "big boy" bed!!
It is also VERY sturdy! I sat on his bed last night as he went to sleep in his new bed for the first time and there were no creaks etc.!
My only complaint is not with the rails, but with the total design of the bed. When it was a crib and then a toddler bed the parts linked up in different places. Now as a full bed these places are exposed and show some wear.
Granted that cost us only ~$20 but it was something that should have been included in this kit saving customers time,effort and additional charge considering that they are already paying quite a hefty sum for two rails.
After my son was born, I recommended the Da Vinci Kalani crib to two other friends but definitely will not be doing so in the future! And when looking to buy a second crib for new baby, I will definitely look at other convertible crib options which do include the complete kit and slats in the price of the crib itself!(Hint: check Costco)

Looks great with our Kalani 3-in-1 crib assembled into a full-size bed. Instructions were very limited, but anyone with a little ingenuity will figure it out. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Triggerfish024
The rail itself it good. But the screws that come with the rails are too short. I bought the rails for DaVinci Emily 4 in 1 Convertible Crib. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Ming
