Keyboard Tray System Builder by UPLIFT Desk

Big Standard Keyboard Tray with the Economy Mechanism attached

Only when your keyboard is positioned at the correct height, depth, and tilt, can you type/mouse with your arms at a 90-degree elbow angle and your wrists perfectly straight. Introducing a height-adjustable desk into your workspace is the ideal way to enjoy a healthier, happier, and more productive work life. If you aren't able to adjust your keyboard and mouse to the optimal seated/standing position for your height, you can't practice ergonomics to its full extent. The Keyboard Tray System Builder by UPLIFT Desk is the solution to your typing/mousing ergonomic needs.

With the Big Standard and Big Ultra-Thin Keyboards spanning 27", you can keep your keyboard and mouse closer together for less reaching. This convenient positioning of your most used desk tools results in less upper body strain throughout the day. But we let you choose from three multi-faceted and dynamic keyboard tray options. The Big Standard Keyboard Tray is the thickest of all the options, the Big Ultra-Thin Keyboard Tray allows you to lower your keyboard even closer to your lap due to its slim thickness. And the Switch Keyboard Tray is equally thin and has a built-in mouse platform that you can move from the right side of the tray to the left for ambidextrous use.

The Keyboard Tray System Builder by UPLIFT Desk also allows you to choose which mechanism you want to use to attach the keyboard tray to your desk. The Quick-Adjust Mechanism features a simple lift-and-release function that allows you to quickly and easily adjust the height, depth, and tilt of your keyboard tray by simply grabbing the front edge of your tray surface and lifting it. Its tilt range spans from 20-degrees negative to 10-degrees positive (we recommend working with a slightly negative tilt for straighter wrists). The Quick-Adjust Mechanism is compatible with most desktops, but designers recommend pairing it with the V2 Standing Desk by UPLIFT Desk due to its 30" depth.

You also have the option to select the Economy Mechanism, which features a twist-and-lock knob that allows you to adjust the height and tilt of your keyboard tray until you find a comfortable position. Whether you have a standing desk or a more traditional desk, both mechanisms come with both an 11" and a 21" under desk mounting track. So simply choose the longest track length that will fit under your desktop. The shorter track is included if space is limited under your desktop. Both mechanisms also include 360-degree swivel capabilities, which allows for added space and an optional way to store the tray flipped 180 degrees and pushed all the way back under the desktop.

The Keyboard Tray System Builder allows you to design the ideal accessory for your workspace. Take your typing/mousing health to the next level and build the perfect keyboard tray system today!

Keyboard Tray System Builder FAQs

  1. What is the track length for the Economy Mechanism and the Quick-Adjust Mechanism?

    You have the option to choose between the two included 11" and 21" tracks. When deciding which track option suits your desk best, you'll want to try to mount the 21” track and if that won’t fit under your desktop you can go with the 11” track. If your desk has crossbars mounted under the desk, a lip edge, or other impediments, our optional track spacer can help. NOTE: The front storage cubby that is included with the optional Track Spacer is not compatible with UPLIFT 4-leg desks so you’ll leave that cubby off (it still works fine!) if you mount this to our 4-leg desk.

  2. What are the dimensions of the mouse pad?

    8" in diameter.

  3. What is the Economy Mechanism's height adjustment range?

    6" with spring assistance (1.75" above track to 4.25" below).

  4. What is the Quick-Adjustment Mechanism's height adjustment range?

    8" total (3" above track to 5" below).

  5. What are the main differences between the Economy Mechanism and the Quick-Adjust Mechanism?

    The Economy Mechanism features a twist-and-lock knob that allows for up to 6" of height adjustments. It also gives you options for tilt changes. The Quick-Adjust Mechanism features a dial for tilt angle modifications and 8" of easy, knob-free height adjustment.

  6. What are the main differences between the choices for keyboard platforms?

    The Big Ultra-Thin and Big Standard all feature platforms that span 27" wide, which gives you enough space to fit your keyboard and your mouse with ease. The Switch, however, features an ambidextrous mouse platform that you can shift to the left or right of your keyboard (depending on which hand you are dominantly using). Of all the platforms, the Big Standard is the thickest. It comes in both medium-density fiberboard (MDF) and bamboo options.

  7. How do I determine my optimal position for ergonomic typing?

    Great question! Put our ergonomic calculator to work to find your ideal heights/posture dimensions.
