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!

Advanced Wire Management Kit - UPLIFT 970 Height-Adjustable Pedestal Desk Base

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:

  • Wire management tray - a large tray (3.6'' wide x 24'' long) attached to the bottom surface of your desktop that holds the included power strip along with any AC adapters or cord bundles. It is easy to add or remove items. (Note: While we recommend the full kit, this tray is also available on its own.)
  • 6-outlet power strip - fits in the wire management tray and allows your monitor, computer, phone, desk lamp or other corded accessories to ride up/down with the desktop so you never run out of cord length when the desk is fully raised.
  • 10 self-adhesive cable mounts
  • 100 single use cable ties
  • 10 reusable cable ties
  • Desk-to-wall cable organizer - conceals the power strip and Ethernet cords going to your wall outlet in a single attractive wire management tube. It's very easy to add/remove wires from the tube with the included wire funnel tool.


Click the video below to get some helpful tips on making the most of your UPLIFT Advanced Wire Management Kit:

The Advanced Wire Management kit includes everything you need to organize your desk's cable clutter.


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.

The Advanced Wire Management kit includes a wire management tray.

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.

Wire mounts and cable ties allow for a clean, custom wire management solution.

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.

Reusable cable ties allow for on-the-fly modification of your cable management system.

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.

The desk-to-wall cable organizer neatly organizes and protects exposed cords running between your desk and the power outlet.

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 clamp=on surge protector with USB charger offers an extra-convenient way to power your devices.

Locking Casters - UPLIFT 970 Height-Adjustable Pedestal Desk Base

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 Arm - UPLIFT 970 Height-Adjustable Pedestal Desk Base

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.

UPLIFT desks go great with an UPLIFT monitor arm.

UPLIFT Desk Mat - UPLIFT 970 Height-Adjustable Pedestal Desk Base

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.

CPU Holder - UPLIFT 970 Height-Adjustable Pedestal Desk Base

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.

A CPU holder is an important consideration when buying a sit-stand desk.

Keyboard Tray - UPLIFT 970 Height-Adjustable Pedestal Desk Base

An ergonomic keyboard tray is an excellent accessory for your UPLIFT desk, giving you the freedom to adjust the height and tilt of your keyboard independently from the desk. A keyboard tray will also relieve the strain caused by over-reaching to type and is an excellent way to manage repetitive stress issues. An UPLIFT Desk is available with your choice of two keyboard trays. The UPLIFT Large Keyboard Tray comes with one, 27'' wide surface for your keyboard and mouse to sit side-by-side. For those who prefer more flexibility, the UPLIFT Switch Keyboard Tray comes with two surfaces: a 19.75'' wide platform for the keyboard and a separate 9'' diameter surface for the mouse. The mouse platform can easily move to the left or right side for ambidextrous mousing, and is also depth adjustable, allowing you to position your mouse closer to your body or farther away without adjusting the rest of the keyboard tray.

Though they have different platforms, both keyboard trays offer the same intuitive adjustability, wide range of ergonomic features and simple installation. With their easy lift-and-release, knob-free locking height adjustment that adjusts a full 8'', wheel tilt adjustment, and easy-to-read height and tilt indicators, both UPLIFT Keyboard Trays allow you to position your keyboard and mouse in a healthy, comfortable spot, whether seated or standing. The 0.25'' thick phenolic keyboard trays both feature a removable foam palm rest, a foam mouse pad and a cord manager for easy routing of your cables. Either of the low-profile, heavy-duty platforms will get your keyboard and mouse even closer to your lap, allow for compact storage and comfortably fit most keyboard and mouse combinations. These high-quality keyboard tray systems are available at a discounted price when bundled together with your UPLIFT Desk.

All necessary mounting hardware is included, including an 11'' track that allows your keyboard tray system to be mounted without interference from the desk's support beam underneath, and a 21'' track that you can use if the crosspiece is removed from the desk. While the 11'' track length will not allow you to fully store your tray along the track under your desk, we find that most users never fully retract their tray even if they have that capability. For users with a 60'' or wider desktop, you can take advantage of the 360° of rear swivel at the mechanism to rotate your platform around underneath the desktop for storage, or achieve a fully-retractable keyboard tray along the track by removing the crosspieces to form an UPLIFT 920 Desk with no crossbar interference and mounting the full 21'' track under the desk.

Arrived via UPS truck in 2 days. They shipped it the same day I ordered. Packaging was great. The installation instructions are clear and there were no missing parts. Assembly took less than hour. I followed the starting instruction and it worked! This desk is great!Quality, Quality, Quality!



Professor Ergo's Thoughts:

Burn more calories while you work and promote better posture and circulation by standing for at least 15 minutes every hour (during an average 8 hour work day) with this affordable and adjustable standing desk base. The UPLIFT 970 Height-Adjustable Pedestal Standing Desk Base is a base only model, so you'll need to attach your own top to make a full workstation.
