      When you're in need of a larger workspace, the UPLIFT 950 3-Leg Height-Adjustable Standing Desk Base is here to help you handle even the heaviest desk setups. It's designed to accommodate our largest L-shaped corner desks, supporting up to 530 pounds easily.

      Smooth transitions from sitting to standing allow for more movement and varied postures at work, giving you health benefits like better circulation and increased focus just by switching up your desk.

      Two legs on the C-shaped base and one upright support leg ensure that you've always got the support you need on bottom to support a larger desktop. Each steel leg has its own motor, giving you quick adjustments when you need them.

      Raise or lower your station with our two button up/down keypad, or upgrade to our advanced digital memory keypad for an even more efficient way to change your stance.

      Once you have your ideal desktop matched with its corresponding base, accessorize with a wide selection of ergo-friendly tools to keep you working comfortably. This includes accessories like mounted CPU holders, keyboard trays, and even monitor arms.

      Height-adjustable desk bases are the foundation of an ergonomic workstation, so start from the ground up and build your ideal desk with a 3-Leg base that works to enhance your work style, bringing you closer to your ideal ergonomic desk setup with a few basic components.


      • Standing desk frame delivers 25.75" of height adjustment
      • Heavy-duty steel base with telescoping crossbar provides stability for any size desktop
      • Reliable base lifts up to 530 lbs
      • Soft start/stop motor allows for smooth adjustments
      • Upgrade to advanced digital memory keypad with LED display
      • Desk base is assembled in Austin, Texas, and parts are sourced both globally and within the USA


      Height range 24.5'' - 50.25'' without desktop
      Travel speed 1.5"/second (varies - slowest with maximum load) with soft start/stop actuator motors
      Sound level 45 decibels during motion
      Weight capacity 530 lbs
      Keypad Advanced digital keypad with 4 memory positions is available *
      2-button up/down keypad comes standard
      Adjustable foot leveling studs 3/8" adjustment for uneven flooring
      Environmental certifications ISO 14001, RoHS & CE compliant
      Warranty 7-year warranty on the entire desk base, which includes the motor, frame, controller, keypad, electronics and mechanisms. Optional extended warranty available when selecting desk options

      * Using the advanced 1-touch digital memory keypad is as simple as the push of a button. Four programmable buttons let you choose and set the best sitting and standing heights for you, even for multiple users. Or simply use the up/down buttons to get to that sit-to-stand sweet spot.


      1. I have the advanced keypad with memory presets, and when I touch one of the presets my desk only moves a fraction of an inch. Is there something wrong with my keypad?

        Your memory presets are probably working just fine! The 3-leg UPLIFT Desk Base just doesn't have one-touch capability with the Advanced Memory Keypad. To recall your preset heights, you have to press-and-hold the memory setting until your desk reaches standing height. This is for safety, since the UPLIFT 3-Leg Base does not have the ability to sense an obstruction and stop.

      2. Does this frame have to be arranged in an "L" shape?

        It does not! The UPLIFT Desk 3-Leg Base can work on a large rectangular desk as well. Contact our Sales Pros for custom configurations or to ask if the setup you have in mind will work.

      3. Can I build my old frame to be like the new frame?

        Yes, you will just need to purchase some additional pieces for your current standing desk frame. Contact our Sales Team so they can help you order exactly what you need and walk you through the reinstallation of your desk.

      4. Can I install my desk's legs in a different configuration than I see in the installation manual?

        You may, but we have included the sturdiest leg configurations in the assembly manual. If you place your legs in a different configuration you may experience more wobble.

      5. Can I use this on a rectangular top?

        Yes, the UPLIFT Desk 3-Leg Desk Base can be used with a rectangular table top. Just push the 3rd leg toward the back center of your desk for additional support.

      6. My desk frame doesn't seem to be responding when I try to adjust the height. Is there something wrong?

        If your desk isn't moving at all, the most likely culprit is that one of the legs isn't connected all the way. For safety, the desk can only function when all three legs are connected. Check your wires and if you are still experiencing issues, please give our support team a call.

      7. What do you mean by C-Frame?

        We refer to our legs as "C-Frame" legs because the shape of the leg and foot form a C. This design makes for a very stable height-adjustable desk base.

      8. Is the 3-leg frame as quiet as the 2-leg frame?

        Yes! UPLIFT Height Adjustable Desk Frames fall somewhere along the decibel spectrum between the noise put off by your computer and your refrigerator. That is pretty quiet if you ask us!

      9. How many pounds can this hold?

        The UPLIFT Desk 3-Leg Desk Base can hold up to 530 lbs, including your desktop.

      10. How many people will I need to assemble the 3-leg desk?

        You should be able to attach the frame to the desktop by yourself. However, lifting your new standing desk and setting it right-side up is definitely a two person job.

      11. I own one of your 2-leg desks and want to expand it to a 3-leg frame. Is that possible?

        Yes! Our 2-leg to 3-leg Conversion Kit makes it easy for you to switch the configuration of your desk. With three legs, you can get add extra stability or create an L-shaped desk without having to buy a whole new frame.

      12. Can the frame be painted?

        No, paint would interfere with the mechanism as the height-adjustable legs retract.


      Frame Color

      Choose from three frame color options: black, gray, or white. The frame has a generous height range of 24.5'' - 50.25'' (not including desktop thickness) and lifts up to 530 lbs.

      Black and gray frames come with both a zero crossbar bracket and a crossbar bracket option for the third leg. White frames include only the zero crossbar bracket for the third leg. The zero crossbar bracket allows more flexibility in the placement of the third leg.

      UPLIFT Frame options

      Frame Style

      The UPLIFT 3-Leg Height-Adjustable Standing Desk Base is offered with a cast-molded aluminum foot for extra stability. Typically, the legs are centered on the feet of a traditional desk, but our legs are offset to the rear of the feet on the C-frame, allowing 3.5'' of extra mounting space underneath the front of the desk for installation of a longer keyboard tray track or other accessories. The C-frame foot gives you a slightly more stable desk than other frames do because it is built to be very stiff with its cast-molded aluminum construction to allow for its advanced design.

      Finding the right height preferences for you at your new adjustable height desk can be revitalizing. Another benefit of using a standing desk is the ability to sit in a more ergo-friendly position for your body, ideally with your keyboard and mouse on your lap or within your Neutral Reach Zone. This is different for everyone, but UPLIFT's height range of 24.5'' - 50.25'' means that it will work for 99% of the population!

      Most height adjustable desks on the market are stabilized with a two-stage frame, which has lower minimum and maximum heights, limiting your ability to adjust to your perfect height if you're taller or shorter than average. UPLIFT's three-stage frame goes both lower and higher, giving you the ability to adjust your desk height even more so you can keep working comfortably whether sitting or standing.

      Our competitors offer height extensions at a premium, while ours comes standard when you choose an UPLIFT adjustable height desk. Invest in a desk that will uplift your office for years to come, helping you and your coworkers to reach the highest peaks of productivity.

      UPLIFT Desk Reach Zone

      Keypad Options


      UPLIFT Desks come standard with a basic Push and Hold Two Button Up/Down Keypad, or you can upgrade to the Advanced Keypad with 4 Memory Positions and Digital Height Display. Its digital readout allows you to make precision adjustments to get your desk to exactly the height you need, then auto-dims to save power. Once you find the perfect sitting and standing heights, four programmable memory presets allow you to save those and then return to them by simply pressing and holding one button.

      Wire Management Options


      Advanced Wire Management Kit

      The Advanced Wire Management Kit is a complete cable organization system for your height-adjustable desk. We developed this kit after years of desk installations. Our main goal was to help you wrangle your cords to ensure that they don’t get in the way of your desk moving up and down. It's a proven way to easily manage all computer and electric desk cords, while also tidying up the space underneath your desk.

      UPLIFT Wire Managment Kit

      Advanced Wire Management Kit contents:

      Wire Management Tray Attaches to the underside of your desk to discreetly house the 6-outlet surge protector power strip, wrangle your cords, or hold small accessories
      Cable Coil Organizer Consolidates your cords using the included wire funnel, bundling them in one neat package from desk to wall
      Adhesive Cable Ties Allow you to easily add and remove cords or components through re-adjustable straps that can be attached to the underside of your desk
      6-Outlet Surge Protector Power Strip Provides protective features and flexibility, with 180J of surge protection, an integrated 15-amp circuit breaker switch, ABS-resistant housing, ten feet of 14AWG heavy duty power cord and a flat plug
      Under Desk Hook Offers a place to guide or hang cords on the underside of your desk

      UPLIFT Clamp-on Surge Protector

      Locking Casters


      The UPLIFT Desk can be ordered with optional casters. The casters come in a set of five. They can be locked to keep the desk stationary, but are easily unlocked when you need to roll the desk.

      Please note: the casters will add approximately 1.5'' of height to your desk.

      For more caster details & photos, download PDF


      CPU Holder


      When using a sit-stand desk, we recommend mounting your computer beneath your desktop to prevent cables from being stretched and pulled out of their ports when moving the desk from sitting to standing positions. An UPLIFT CPU Holder allows you to securely attach your computer tower to the bottom of your desktop to free up desk space.

      Please note: mounting options are limited when pairing this with a 48" wide desktop. Please refer to our blog article, which shows the possible configurations. If you still have questions, please give us a call and we would be happy to discuss it with you!

      Keyboard Tray


      UPLIFT Large Keyboard Tray

      An ergonomic keyboard tray gives you the freedom to adjust the height and tilt of your keyboard independently from the desk and also relieves the strain caused by over-reaching to type. The UPLIFT Large Keyboard Tray comes with one, 27'' wide surface for your keyboard and mouse to sit side-by-side.

      UPLIFT Large Keyboard Tray

      UPLIFT Switch Keyboard Tray

It is available in different lengths to correspond to your desktop.

      Write Review

      1. Unbelievably Good 5 Star Review

        Posted by on Mar 11th 2017

        I built a custom corner desk top for my day trading workstation. I really needed a sit/stand solution because I spend many hours at the keyboard. I looked at all the other options and cost the Uplift 950 based on other reviews and the fact that my wife uses this same system at Google. Ordering was easy, and the base arrived a day earlier than the shipping estimate. Installation was very easy. There are a number of ways you can configure the legs, and the kit comes with lots of hardware to allow custom setup. I ended up not using the cross bracing as my work top is EXTREMELY rigid, but I'll store the extra parts away for future use. (The base will be useable on just a bout any future desktop I might want!!)
        Installation took less than an hour. My new desk is incredibly solid and stable. The base can lift 750 lbs or so. I sat on it and it didn't even strain to lift my 180 lbs. Setting up the programable keypad was super easy works great.
        Overall, I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER!!

        Pros: Super solid construction, simple install and setup.
        Cons: NONE!

      2. Love it so far, Uplift 900 - 3 legs 5 Star Review

        Posted by on Jun 25th 2014

        So far I love this product. All works great and is sturdy. I am sure my installation was not recommended as I did not have the room in my tight area to flip my L-shaped desk upside down to install the legs. I rather had to assemble the legs and then place them under the desk first. Then utilizing the three legs (unsecured) I lifted the desk and removed all panels that supported the desk. After that it was simple, I lowered the legs all the way down and unplugged everything. Then climbing under the desk I positioned the legs where I wanted and screwed them into place. Reconnected everything and I was off and standing in front of my old business desk.
        Thank you,
