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. 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.

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 come back and 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, we also offer the UPLIFT Dual Monitor Arm, with the same great intuitive adjustment.

Models available:

  • Single UPLIFT arm for monitors 4.5 - 17.5 lbs.
  • Single UPLIFT arm for monitors 17.5 - 35 lbs.
  • Dual UPLIFT arm for monitors 4.5 - 17.5 lbs. each

UPLIFT desks go great with an UPLIFT monitor arm.

Standing Desk Mat

Our 18'' x 30'' desk mat is an excellent choice for comfortable standing. It has a textured surface to prevent slipping, and the gel foam interior provides relief to legs and feet. It's light and small enough to easily move back and forth as you go from sitting to standing.

Nick's shoes look spectacular on the UPLIFT Standing Desk Mat.

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.

Keyboard Tray

An ergonomic keyboard tray is an excellent accessory for your Conset 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. Your 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 this 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. 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.

Great desk
April 10, 2013
Everything I wanted and expected. It is beautiful, and it was pretty easy to put together.

terrific desk!
February 6, 2013
I bought a Tread Desk (it's just tread part of a treadmill) and needed a desk that could go up and down, and this desk is fantastic! Although, I rarely ever move it from the high-up position, as I'm always standing and using the Tread; even so, I love my desk! I do worry though, what happens if the motors dies and I can get it to go down, or back up?

The instructions and build were a little hairy at first, but it's a great desk and has made my daily work so much better!

Adjustable Height desk 445
April 30, 2012
I LOVE this desk! The motor works smoothly when lifting/lowering the desk, and it is great to be able to stand or walk on a treadmill for periods during the day. As others commented, the directions are not very good - a diagram is all you get, but a little common sense goes a long way here. I have the center cut desk and have attached the keyboard shelf from my old desk. It doesn't interfere with the motor and gives me the entire surface to work on, which is much deeper than it looks in the pictures.

Great Desk
January 27, 2012
I looked around for a lot of height adjustable desks and ended up getting this one. I got the 63 inch center cut. I personally really like the center cut, especially when I'm standing. That was a deal breaker for many of the other desks I looked at. The price is also very good compared to other electric desks. There are adjusters on the feet so you can always level your desk. I actually like mine facing down a little. Some desks offer memory presets, but I glad I didn't pay more for a desk like that. It's very easy to remember what position I like and quick to get it there. Things I would have liked: I would have liked an option for a black desk. There is no instructions on where to drill the holes on the wooden desk part to the frame. You just pick where you think you want it. (Maybe that's better?). I would have also liked better instructions on metal holder that holds the power supply. It's a little tricky to figure out exactly how it works, but it's a really good design.
