Revision of F406-19 Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Non-Full-Size Baby Cribs/Play Yards

Keywords

None Provided

Rationale

Over the life of the ASTM F406 standard, the stability device drawing and schematic, currently represented as Figure A1.28 in the ASTM F406-19 standard, became ambiguous and as a result the device has been built differently from lab to lab. This ballot intends to clarify the original intent of the stability device apparatus, currently represented as Figure A1.28 in the ASTM F406-19 standard, based on when it first came into the ASTM F406 standard in the 1970s, to ensure this apparatus is built with more consistent precision from lab to lab. This proposed ballots stability device would also align with the device specified by Health Canada per the Playpens Regulations [SOR/2018-186, Schedule 7].
