UPLIFT Desk Troubleshooting Tips and Tricks

Need help with a desk error code, a monitor arm that won't stay in the place you want it to, or a keyboard tray that won't raise or lower? Luckily, we've found that these issues can usually be fixed with the simple tips below.

Programming your UPLIFT Desk - UPLIFT Height Adjustable Desks

The control box is the "brain" of your desk, and has many customizable functions. Our Programming Your UPLIFT Desk PDF includes instructions on locking the keypad, changing the memory presets from one-touch to press-and-hold, and setting new lower or upper height limits. Please note that this only works on control boxes with programming codes (2-leg), (3-leg), or (4-leg) printed on the sticker located near the power socket. If you have an older control box, you can purchase a programmable UPLIFT Desk control box.

Counterbalance Instructions - UPLIFT Monitor Arm

If your monitor arm isn't maintaining its position once you've raised or lowered it, it may need to be counterbalanced. Watch our quick demonstration on correctly counterbalancing your UPLIFT Monitor Arm.

Shipping Pin Removal - UPLIFT Large or Switch Keyboard Tray

If your keyboard tray mechanism will not raise or lower, you may need to remove the shipping pin. To locate the shipping pin, see the image below. Simply lift up on the front of the tray & lower the back to relieve pressure on the shipping pin and remove it.

If an item looks damaged or parts are missing, please notify us immediately. We will make every effort to help you obtain the necessary replacements as quickly as possible at no extra cost to you. Please hold onto any and all packaging materials until you have assembled and installed the item(s) in your order. This will help if you notice any damages upon receiving your item(s) or if you decide to return anything within the return period window. If your order is shipping by truck freight or white glove, please note the important instructions below. 

  • Even if the package appears only slightly damaged, write "Package Damaged" when you sign for delivery. This is very important. If the package looks significantly damaged, you may refuse delivery of the package. The damaged package will be returned to us and we will send you a new one. If you refuse delivery, please notify us so that we can expect the return shipment.
  • If you have already accepted the package and find that parts are missing or damaged, please contact us right away and we will ship you the replacement parts free of charge. Speed matters since most carriers only let us file freight claims within 48 hours of delivery. We will ask for photos of the damaged item(s) and packaging. If we cannot replace the parts, we will have the carrier pick up the package and we will send you a replacement. All returned products should be in the original packaging.
