The VIP3 Accessory Option for the Kinesis Freestyle2 Keyboard easily attaches to the Freestyle2 Split Adjustable Keyboard, allowing the keyboard to tent at slope settings of 5, 10 and 15 degrees. The VIP3, like the original VIP accessory for the V1 Freestyle keyboard, can be used with or without the included pivot tether which connects the two halves of the split keyboard.

Professor Ergo's Thoughts:
A split keyboard like the Kinesis Freestyle2 is an improvement over a standard keyboard, but the VIP3 Accessory and its ability to tent your keyboard 5, 10 or 15 degrees will make your Freestyle2 truly ergonomic. Use your VIP3 accessory with the pivot tether that connects the two modules of your keyboard, or remove it to tent your keyboard with more separation. Also, please be aware that the VIP3 works exclusively with the Freestyle2.
Crime it's not included with the keyboard
June 20, 2012
I tried this and the V3 accessory. The VIP accessory is much better due to the included palm rests. This only has two settings vs. the V3's three settings and I did not miss the third setting. Honestly, I can't believe that they sell this keyboard without palm rests, I find it pretty awkward to use without palm rests and think Kinesis should should include it with all keyboards. These accessories are just molded plastic and cost almost nothing to manufacture but are a great way for Kinesis to pad their profits. I hate being forced to spend the extra money on these accessories but in my opinion the keyboard is a step backwards in terms of ergonomics without the palm rests.
Prefer the V3 better
September 24, 2010
I have ordered this for my second Kinesis Freestyle, thinking the palm rest may be a good addition. While the palm rest is not really necessary, the provided one is of good quality and has nice pads. But the V-lifters were disappointing. I bought this thinking it will be similar to the V3 kit with 3 configurations, but these have only 2 and they don't lock into a position like the V3. I pretty much put it away and just had my palm rest on.

The VIP Accessory Kit is a great addition to the Kinesis Freestyle keyboard. In fact, I would be very uncomfortable without it. I do wish the kit could be angled a notch or two greater, and wish it did not slant downward toward the table. This downward slope causes my wrists to sit a little bit bent, adding discomfort and stress. So I lay my regular wrist rest across the top of the kit to create a "neutral" wrist position, adequately eliminating the downward slope. It is a little awkward and would be far better if Kinesis remedied the situation by making the angle adjustable or offering a thick enough stick-on pad to correct it. For the $40 price tag, there could be some improvements, but it is still a good product and I definitely recommend it.
VIP Accessory Kit
March 19, 2010
I found this accessory kit very useful, especially after having purchased the Kinesis Freestyle keyboard following a wrist injury. The wrist rests are well positioned, and the multiple tilt options allow for real comfort without making the keyboard be so unusual that no one else can use it. The pieces simply snap on to the keyboard and you are ready to go.
Props up the keyboard at a nice angle.
October 10, 2009
The VIP option tilts the keyboard at a nice angle, and it was easy to set up. It can sometimes tilt a little if you accidentally push the keyboard laterally, then settle back into the previous place, which can get a little annoying at first when you're trying to decide how far apart to put the halves of your keyboard.
