Be warned -don't waste your time and money with this product
Heavy and not really "portable".
It was hard to assemble and even harder to disassemble. The instruction manual might has well been in Russian as it did not clearly show the steps to work this thing.
The mattress is difficult to attach through awkward-to-access slits in the base. The protective padding ripped on the first use.
Save your money and buy a better baby cot.
I need a wig as I have no hair left
We bought this cot as we have other items in the steelcraft range like our awesome pram. The cot is reasonably heavy when folded away, very deceiving. To set the cot up is a breeze but like others have mentioned packing it away is an absolute nightmare, hence the no hair business. The buttons are hidden behind the cot padding which make it impossible to see what you doing. The padding can't be removed so it's all done by feel. Very very frustrating! I ended up snipping a 1cm hole on all the button locations to make it easier to disassemble, cot...now comes down in 2 minutes flat but have to live with the little cuts. well priced and very sturdy cot. Wouldn't recommend to others for a portable coz as it's not user friendly but ok if set up and left.
Ok but would probably not buy again
This cot is nice and sturdy, easy to assemble but packing it away is another story. Drives me insane, I usually give up and it doesn't go back in the bag after use!!! My husband can after about fifteen minutes of readjusting things! Surely other portacots are easier than this!!!
Traditional portacot- heavy but works
Bought this from baby land $85. Read lotsa review was contemplating between the light phil&teds portacot and heavy traditional ones. The reason we chose a traditional one was bcos its elevated off the ground ESP when u go camping or wet moist ground. This cot is easy to set up and take apart, I had used a portacot before. Don't mind the weight cos we will only be using it few times a year- just chuck it on to the car or plane!

Not so Perfect
This steelcraft porta cot assembled really easily and is very sturdy, it looks nice. How ever it is a nightmare to pack up for travel and we have yet to discover how to put it back in to the carry bag. The price was really affordable. Bought a separate mattress as we felt the one supplied was not soft enough.
Easy to assemble and is very sturdy. Price is also very affordable
Hard to fold back in to the carrier bag.
