Petite Division

It’s great to have a place for everything and everything in its place. Enter the UPLIFT Switch Keyboard Tray—featuring a separate mouse pad area that can go from left to right with just a push and the will to change. It’s never a bad time to Switch things up.

Finding the Right Angle

Working in an L-shaped desk doesn’t mean you need to feel wedged in all the time. Our convenient UPLIFT Corner Sleeve steps in to take the edge off for everyone that likes to work right in the middle of all the desk action. As soon as you’ve taken in the hardy metal structure and the added space the sleeve adds to your work surface, trust us—you’re going to learn to love feeling cornered.

Hitting the Spacebar

Why choose between installing our supportive crossbars and getting the full under-desk retraction our UPLIFT keyboard trays offer? Get the best of both worlds with the UPLIFT Track Spacer, and expand your accessories’ reach to the stars, or at least the back of your desk.

Keying in Comfort

Ready to step your typing game? The highly adjustable, effortlessly ergonomic Goldtouch Adjustable Keyboard is a perfect complement to our UPLIFT trays—raising, lowering, and splitting to suit any individual need, and cushioning everything from your casework to your commentary with curves on every key. Mavis Beacon would be proud.

While supplies last, add a brand-new keyboard to complement your keyboard tray at a special low price of just $20.

  1. Do more people prefer the Large Keyboard Tray or the Switch?

    It really comes down to personal preference. Some people really enjoy having a separate mousing platform, and will therefore be happier with the Switch. Other people are quite content with the single, large surface provided by the Large Keyboard Tray.

  2. What are the benefits of the Switch over the Large Keyboard Tray?

    The UPLIFT Desk Switch Keyboard Tray has a more compact footprint, thanks to the separate mouse platform. It also features a cable organizer to keep your mouse cord in line.

  3. What is the track spacer and do I really need one?

    The crossbar of the UPLIFT frame is mounted to the underside of the desktop, and may get in the way of your keyboard tray when you try to push it all the way under the desktop. That is where the Track Spacer comes into play. The Track Spacer goes over the crossbar and allows you to install the keyboard tray directly to it, instead of your desk. This means that you will be able to fully stow your keyboard tray under your desk without hitting the crossbar. We highly recommend the Track Spacer!

  4. Can I tilt the mousing platform independently of the keyboard platform?

    No, the keyboard tray and mousing platform tilt in unison.

  5. Why is it called a "switch" keyboard tray?

    The UPLIFT Switch Keyboard Tray allows you to easily "switch" the mousing platform from left to right, depending on which hand you prefer to use for mousing.

  6. Are there one or two mouse platforms that slide out from underneath the keyboard tray?

    There is one mousing platform that slides from side-to-side underneath the keyboard platform. Only one side of the mouse platform can be used at a time.

  7. I just installed my keyboard tray but now it won't lower, help!

    Stay calm, you may have simply forgotten to remove the shipping pin. Refer to step four of the installation guide for how to remove the shipping pin and you'll be enjoying your keyboard tray in no time.

  8. How big is the keyboard platform?

    The keyboard platform measures 19.75" wide by 12.25" deep by 0.25" thick.

  1. Great Keyboard 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Dec 3rd 2016

    I bought the Uplift Switch keyboard tray because of limited mounting space at my work desk. Using the short track mount, the tray is absolutely rock solid and doesn't move at all when typing. I have been suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome and find that this tray has been of immense benefit in reducing CTS symptoms once I was properly adjusted it.

  2. The perfect keyboard tray for me 5 Star Review

    Posted by on May 8th 2015

    I love this keyboard tray. I had a cheap tray before and thankfully this Uplift Switch Tray is a really high end upgrade for me. It has a easy to use finger dial with degree markings so I can achieve the perfect angle for my keyboard and even modify it slightly as my hands/wrists need a different position. I've only ever seen this high end dial feature on much more expensive Humanscale keyboard trays. The tray moves up/down very easily and is rock solid steady while I type. I like the fact that it came with both a short and long track for mounting it below my desk, I ended up using the short track and it works very well. The included mouse pad and cord keeper on the mouse tray are really great little touches that make this affordable keyboard tray nicer than any other keyboard tray I've seen. Make sure you install the tray on the mechanism before trying to make the mechanism go up/down. You need the mechanism to get leverage on the tray so you can use the easy up/down feature on this tray. I jumped the gun and didn't follow the assembly instructions and I thought my up/down didn't work. A quick call to the very helpful customer service set me straight!
