    What make is your cotbed? I bet the manufacturers would sell spares.

    I tried getting some for mine and unsuccessful - I had to go and get another cot as i was told that cots and bits change all the time etc.

    Hope you find some though.

    Ours was missing some (it was my cousin's bed beforehand) so I emailed Mamas and Papas who do a pack of bits like that.

    However, we found just what we needed in B&Q in their bolt section.

    Oh if you do find them let me know also, as me and OH went on the hunt for them in B and Q and couldnt find them at all, and the staff there didnt have a clue.

    No i couldnt find them in b and q either, they said if they stocked all the bolts and nuts to cots etc they would have no room for their own products.

    Make sure that you take one of the bolts to match them up - they weren't the EXACT bolt but certainly fitted and did the job.
