  1. I cannot find anywhere on these beds the model number tag that is needed to talk to a representative. Is there any advice that anyone had as to what to do these beds are barely 6 months old and we have had the rail split. We assumed that it was the kids fault and put a thick piece of OSB board screwed down to the rails. Anyhow don’t know what to do to get the reimbursement or the “real” re-pair kit for the beds.
