The UPLIFT 970 Height-Adjustable Pedestal Standing Desk Base (Black) allows you to access the many benefits of an adjustable height workstation, including better posture, increased energy and focus plus more calories burned throughout the work day. This slim electric height-adjusting desk base easily moves from a sitting to a standing height and allows you to add your own top. We suggest pairing a 48'' W x' 30'' D desktop with this desk base. The DC motor can lift up to 165 lbs. with the push of a button. The UPLIFT 970 Height-Adjustable Pedestal Standing Desk Base (Black) can be used in the office or anywhere to create a sit-stand ergonomic setup.
Please note: While a pedestal, or single column desk, has a smaller footprint, making it ideal for limited space areas, stability is increased greatly with the addition of a second leg. For our most affordable and stable two-leg desk, check out the UPLIFT 900!

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. It's a proven way to easily manage all computer and electric desk cords. The kit includes the following:
Click the video below to get some helpful tips on making the most of your UPLIFT Advanced Wire Management Kit:
The included cable organization tray forms the crux of your wire management solution with a sleek, black design that seamlessly blends with your desk's design and mounts securely to the desktop with two self-tapping wood screws or a strip of included double-sided tape. At 3.6'' wide, this tray is wide enough to accommodate cords, power supplies and the included power strip, minimizing below-desk clutter. While we recommend adding the entire advanced wire management kit for a full cable management solution with the most customization, this wire management tray portion of the kit can also be added to your desk order on its own.
10 self-adhesive wire mounts and 100 single-use cable ties allow for cables to be bundled and pulled taut against the bottom of the desk, eliminating hanging wires.
As your workstation develops over the years, it's likely that you'll need to re-bundle wires for routing or storage inside the wire management tray. A set of 10 reusable cable ties is also included, allowing for modification of cable bundling as needed without needing to replace individual cable ties.
Additionally, the Advanced Wire Management Kit provides a desk-to-wall cable organizer to organize wires running from an outlet or equipment to your desk in a single bundle. The desk-to-wall cable organizer's heavy-duty "spiral" design protects the cables inside from wear and tear, while also allowing cables to be integrated into the organizer or removed from it easily. An included quick wire add/remove tool rapidly and efficiently routes cables into the organizer.
Finally, if you need more power outlets close at hand, or just need an all-in-one power solution, a clamp-on surge protector with USB charger can be added to the Advanced Wire Management Kit or ordered as a standalone product. This unique surge protector features six power outlets with space for two large AC adapters as well as a pair of ports for charging USB devices. Capable of clamping onto any surface up to 1 3/8'' thick, this surge protector can placed nearly anywhere on your desk for convenient outlet access. Please note that this surge protector will not fit inside of the wire management tray and must be mounted on the desk edge.
The UPLIFT 970 Standing Desk can be ordered with optional casters. The casters come in a set of four, and can be locked to keep the desk stationary, but easily unlocked when you want to roll the desk.
Please note: the casters will add approximately 1.5 inches of height to your desk.
Monitor arms allow you to easily move your monitor in and out, side-to-side, and up and down, while allowing you to make use of your desktop surface. Monitor arms help you keep good posture as you look at your screen, while avoiding eye strain. Monitor stands that typically come with a new monitor are not ergonomic, and most people end up pushing their monitor too far back on their desks. Monitor arms give you more control, encourage comfortable posture, and save desk space. Most people that purchase a monitor arm come back and say they should have gone with a monitor arm years ago.
The Innovative EVO II Monitor Arm is a stylish, heavy-duty monitor arm that provides complete fingertip adjustment for height, depth and lateral movement. These arms support monitors weighing up to 20 lbs., feature an adjustable vertical counterbalance system that allows for fingertip vertical monitor adjustment, and are available in black, silver or chrome. If you are looking for a dual monitor solution, there is our own UPLIFT Dual Monitor Arm, with independent pneumatic gas cylinder adjustment for two monitors up to 17.5 lbs. each.
Add an UPLIFT Sit-Stand desk mat to your desk base order, and receive an additional discount off the regular mat price. Our UPLIFT Sit-Stand anti-fatigue desk mats are extremely durable and comfortable. The padding is an inch thick and the surface is puncture-proof to withstand high heels or even the wheels of your chair. Choose from a 2' x 3' size or a 3' x 5' size.
Note: If you wish to use your UPLIFT Sit-Stand desk mat as a chair mat as well, you will need the 3' x 5' size.
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. We don't recommend leaving your CPU on the floor, as most cords aren't long enough to stretch from a computer placed on the floor to the standing height of your desk. While one option is to place your CPU on top of your desk, a CPU holder allows you to securely attach your computer tower to the bottom of your desktop to free up desk space. For an adjustable CPU holder at a discounted price when bundled with this desk, our own UPLIFT CPU Holder features a 360° swivel mount and a gliding track mechanism for easy access to your computer.
Click the video below to see the many features and benefits of the UPLIFT CPU Holder:
An ergonomic keyboard tray is an excellent accessory for your UPLIFT Desk, and the Humanscale Keyboard Tray with 11'' Track has been specifically designed for use with a desk with a limited depth for mounting. This system comes with a shorter 11" track to mount the keyboard tray without interference from your desk's support beam underneath, as well as a shorter 5GSM mechanism that gives you 4" of height adjustment and 15° of tilt, and allows for four more inches of storage under the desk than a standard mechanism. While the 11'' track length will not allow you to fully store your tray under your desk (please note in the images below that the tray retracts to 7.75'' from the edge), we find that most users never fully retract their tray even if they have that capability.
For a little bit of extra storage, this half-circle-shaped, swiveling drawer easily attaches to the underside of your desktop via a central mount and pivots in either direction, rotating out to give you quick and easy access to smaller accessories that you don't want cluttering up your desktop. Featuring pen and pencil trays, a notepad slot, a tape dispenser, and storage compartments, the 13.6'' W x 7.4'' D x 1.3'' thick UPLIFT accessories drawer will help keep your height adjustable desk cleaner and more organized.
The Raynor Evo Chair is an extra-comfortable executive task chair. Covered in soft foam and upholstered in stain-resistant fabric, this chair is available at a significant discount when purchased with your UPLIFT Desk. You won't be sitting as often anymore, but it's still nice to have an attractive and functional chair.
The Muvman Sit-Stand Stool is virtually the perfect accessory for your standing desk. With this ''active seating'' solution, you can take short breaks with your desk at standing height, giving you a third option somewhere between sitting and standing. The Muvman Sit-Stand Stool offers a height adjustable seat, a built-in handle for portability, and a non-slip base for the maximum range of motion with exceptional stability.
Please note: The Muvman ''factory'' model is only available with a black vinyl seat and black base. Red microfiber seat cushion is only available with black base.
We also have a variety of other ergonomic stools that make a great accessory for your UPLIFT Standing Desk.
We are so confident in our product that we back each UPLIFT desk base we ship with a 5-year, all-inclusive warranty, which covers the frame, motor, controller, switch, electronics and mechanisms. You also have the option of upgrading to our 12-year, all-inclusive extended warranty to more than double the length of your warranty period. If you have any issues with your desk base within the warranty period, just give us a call, and we will ship you the necessary replacement parts free of charge. The warranty does not cover normal wear and tear of the desktop surface. Free shipping only available for United States addresses. You can read more details about our industry-leading warranty coverage on our UPLIFT Desk Warranty page.
