Monitor Arm

The attached stands that typically come with a new monitor are not ergonomic or adjustable; using a monitor arm will allow you to maintain good posture, avoid eye strain, control monitor position and save desktop space. Most people who purchase a monitor arm say they should have done so years ago.

The UPLIFT Monitor Arm is a stylish, pneumatic monitor arm that provides complete fingertip adjustment for height, depth and lateral movement with an adjustable counterbalance system that allows for easy movement. If you are looking for a dual monitor solution, you have the option of choosing two single UPLIFT Monitor Arms, or an UPLIFT Dual Monitor Arm, with the same great intuitive adjustment. Add an UPLIFT Laptop Mount to raise your laptop to a more comfortable viewing height.


  • Single UPLIFT arm for monitors 4.5 - 17.5 lbs. or laptops 0.5 - 13.5 lbs.
  • Single UPLIFT arm for monitors 17.5 - 35 lbs.
  • Two single UPLIFT arms for dual monitors 4.5 - 17.5 lbs. each
  • Dual UPLIFT arm for monitors 4.5 - 17.5 lbs. or with a laptop 0.5 - 13.5 lbs
  • Dual UPLIFT arm for monitors 17.5 - 35 lbs. each

*PLEASE NOTE: Your monitor must fall within the weight range of the model you choose. If your monitor is lighter than the weight range shown, the arm will not be remain at any position lower than highest point. If your monitor is heavier than the weight range shown, the arm will not remain at any position higher than the lowest point. If you are unsure of the weight of your monitor, contact us, and one of our experts will help determine the correct monitor arm for you.

UPLIFT desks go great with an UPLIFT monitor arm.

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. 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.

Please note that mounting options are limited when pairing this with the UPLIFT 975's desktop. If you have questions, please give us a call and we would be happy to discuss it with you!

Keyboard Tray

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 side by side. For more flexibility, the UPLIFT Switch Keyboard Tray comes with 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. 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 underneath. 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.

4 Stars based on 10 Review(s)

Very disappointed in lack of proper disclosure on this desk and poor customer service
July 2, 2015
In standing position, this desk is unacceptably bouncy. This "bounce" is acknowledge upon questioning to the company, but not adequately disclosed (actually, not disclosed at all) on the website that I read prior to ordering. There is a sentence buried on the site (good luck finding it) that essentially says that desks with 2 and 4 legs are more stable than desks with 1 (obviously). There was zero indication that in standing position (the whole reason I bought the desk) the desk would have a substantial bounce.
Materials seem sturdy and good quality.
Does NOT deliver on the core reason for being - not stable / unacceptable bounce. I had a few friends / family members try it out in case I was crazy, and all said they couldn't work on it. Impolite customer service person until I mentioned that I wanted to talk to the owner. Then he got very polite.

Horrible user experience
June 29, 2015
I ordered and paid to have this desk set up and in the standing position. It has a tremendous "bounce". I literally feel seasick. When I called the company, I was told that there is a warning about this on the website, but it requires quite a treasure hunt to find. Given the degree of the bounce / lack of stability, I believe the company violated good consumer practice by not making this warning more obvious. The company representative on spoke to on the phone today was flip. I requested that the company cover the costs to disassemble and ship back the desk which is completely unusable for me. He made me feel like my head was on backwards and like I was asking for something outrageous. I just don't want to be out any money for a desk which I feel I bought based on lack of full information because of the way the instability warning showed up (or didn't),

I purchased this desk and it was delivered with a small piece of the wire grommet hole plastic cover broken on the the desk. I put everything together anyway. Every time I would stare at the cracked cover. One call to Customer Support and they quickly shipped out the small plastic replacement piece. Excellent customer service! I love the desk and use it every day!

Pleased with product selection
November 1, 2013
I chose this product over the Ergo Kangaroo Desktop. Unlike the Kangaroo desktop, its large surface area provides the ability to adjust the viewing depth of the monitor, a key consideration given many widescreen monitors are large and need to be placed far enough away from the eyes to obtain a proper field of view.
