    2-Leg Height-Adjustable Desk Frame

    Our frame boasts a hefty carrying capacity of over 350 pounds thanks to cast aluminum construction and support legs that are offset towards the rear in a C-shaped design. Telescoping crossbars are compatible with desks 26 - 96 inches wide, so if you decide to upgrade your desktop further down the line you can still keep the same great frame.

    Three-stage frames adjust 33% faster thanks to using three spindles instead of just two found in most desk designs. Your frame comes with leveling glides to support and stabilize your desk, so setting up shop on less-than-even flooring isn't a deal breaker. Or throw on some casters to create a mobile work station that works well for shared workspaces.

    Memory Keypad

    Upgrade to the advanced keypad to access your frame's memory functionality with the push of a button. With enough space for four height adjustments, feel free to share your new desk with a coworker. Or keep all of those presets to yourself when you want to save your seated, perched, standing, and treadmill heights. A handy digital readout displays height adjustment to the tenth of an inch.

    The Advanced 1-Touch Digital Keypad gives your standing desk a memory in which to store your preferrred heights.

    • Weight capacity for UPLIFT frames assumes that weight is evenly distributed.
    • Improperly distributing weight will diminish lifting capacity, create a tipping hazard and may damage leg actuators.
    • Damage arising from any non-recommended use is not covered by warranty, nor will we be held liable from any damage or injury arising as a result.
    • Please observe all warnings, notices, and advisories in the provided user's manual.


    • Maximum desktop width depends on the material, thickness, and construction of the top you are providing.
    • Maximum recommended width tops of 96" may sag or bend if placed on our width-adjustable desk base without installing the crossbar.
    • The maximum recommended depth of your desktop is 40" (desk will overhang the feet of the base by about 5" in the front and rear).
    • A 40" deep desk will be slightly less stable, and we recommend a 3-leg base for those who require no desk movement. A 3-leg base supports a 50" deep desktop.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. What kind of top can I attach to this frame?

      We recommend attaching a desktop that is at least 3/4" to 1" thick and 36" to 80" wide. Your desktop will also need to be compatible with wood screws, which are used to connect the frame to the desktop. Wooden, laminate, or other sturdy composite materials make for great desktops.

    2. What kind of top can I attach to this frame?

      We recommend attaching a desktop that is at least 3/4" to 1" thick and 36" to 80" wide. Your desktop will also need to be compatible with wood screws, which are used to connect the frame to the desktop. Wooden, laminate, or other sturdy composite materials make for great desktops.

    3. Can I switch my UPLIFT Desk frame to a larger or smaller desk in the future?

      The adjustable UPLIFT Desk frame easily adapts to various desktop widths. Just loosen up a few bolts and then push the lifting columns closer together for a smaller desk or pull them further apart for a larger desk. Check out our installation video to see how easy it is to adjust the frame.

    4. Is a 2-leg frame sturdy?

      When properly installed, the UPLIFT Desk frame should not noticeably shake or wobble even when you are standing. Although, any sit-stand desk is susceptible to a small amount of wobble when fully extended, UPLIFT Desk frames rate as some of the sturdiest on the market as compared to our competitors.

    5. What's a dual-motor design?

      UPLIFT Desks 2-leg frames feature a dual-motor design, which means each leg gets its own motor. This makes UPLIFT Desks quieter to adjust, stronger, more reliable, and safer than desks with a single motor. Rest assured that your UPLIFT Desk is the most technologically advanced height adjustable desk you can buy today.

    6. What kind of motor is used?

      The UPLIFT Frame uses a direct-drive spindle motor.

    7. Can I use this on a circular top?

      Go for it! Just make sure your top is at least 3/4" - 1" thick and is centered on the frame.

    8. How big of a top can I put on this frame?

      Ideally your top should be between 36 - 80" wide. However, the frame will support a top that is no more than 96" long and 34" deep. If you try to install a larger top you will be compromising the stability of the UPLIFT Desk frame.

    9. What tools do I need to assemble the frame?

      All you will need to have on hand is a Phillips screwdriver or power drill. The frame will come with the necessary Allen wrench.

    10. Can I put a glass top on this?

      We do not recommend installing a glass top on the UPLIFT Desk frame as you will not be able to adequately secure the glass top to the frame.

    11. How difficult is assembly?

      Assembling the UPLIFT Desk frame is easier than assembling a bookcase, but check out our assembly video to see for yourself.

    12. Why is a three-stage frame superior to a two-stage frame?

      That has to do with many reasons, starting with the 3 spindles we have in each of our frame legs versus the standard 2 you find on cheaper height adjustable frames on the market. Because we have an extra spindle, our desks 33% quicker to adjust! Also, three-stage frames offer users a higher range of height adjustability, so they fit a wider range of people, from petite people to the very tall, even kids! If you plan on adding a standing desk treadmill to your workstation, a three-stage frame is a must-have to give you the extra height you need to raise it high enough to use the machine.

    13. What is the voltage input/output?

      The frame has an input of 110V and an output of 31V.

    14. Are the screws to attach the frame to my desktop included?

      Yes, the frame will include the wood screws needed to attach it to your desktop. Just make sure you double check that the wood screws are not longer than the thickness of your desktop.

    15. Can the frame be painted?

      No, painting the frame would compromise the leg as it retracts.

      Got one for Home!

      Posted by Bruce on Feb 8th 2017

      I had work buy me an Uplift sit to stand desk because of a herniated disc in my back. I liked it so much I bought the legs by themselves for home. I refinished an old table-top that was easy to put onto these legs. Love it.

      Great Solution

      Posted by Paula on Jan 27th 2017

      I previously had a keyboard/monitor arm solution and it was horrible. i purchased this a month ago and am so glad I did. I can't imagine what would be better. Smooth, easy operation and I still have all my desktop work space since this lifts and lowers the whole desktop. I put it together by myself, using a solid wood ikea desktop. instructions were easy to follow. I've extremely happy with my purchase. The real test will be to see how long this holds up. I go up and down with it a few times each workday.

      Great product

      Posted by Ivan on Dec 28th 2016

      I installed under my current desk which is 68 inches in length and 24 inches deep. Install took me around 20 mins, it attached really quite nicely. The operation of the lift works great very stable, love that it has overloading function where if anything is blocking the operation it will stop and not put barely any pressure on the objects that are obstructing it operation.

      Awesome Desk Legs

      Posted by Matt B on Dec 20th 2016

      This desk is amazing. I installed a maple top to the legs and it came out wonderful. Having the preset heights are very cool. I actually have found myself adjusting the height very frequently to get more comfortable as I sit (sometimes 12 hours at a time). This desk lifts with hardly any noise and super smooth when going up and down.

      Well Engineered

      Posted by James N. Smith A.I.A. on Dec 20th 2016

      My Uplift desk exceeded my expectations. As an Architect, I was looking for a well designed and well built desk and it appeared that Uplift would work well. The system is very solidly constructed, well designed and simple to assemble. The large desk surface is also very stable. My back is already doing much better after only a few days of use.

      Thanks for a great product!

      Far better than the hacked desk I've been using for four years

      Posted by Unknown on Nov 15th 2016

      Four years ago I picked up a large IKEA FREDRIK desk for $25 on Craigslist and "lifted it" by placing 7hx5wx18l" wood planter boxes from Millstores underneath its feet. I also added a two-arm monitor/laptop holder to get good eye level height. It worked! But my home office looked less than stellar.

      So when my company offered to offset costs of making home office worker spaces more comfortable, I jumped on the chance to get a real lifty desk.

      UpLift was super easy to assemble (< 1 hour) and I just used my old IKEA desktop so I didn't spend a lot plus got to keep the same desk space I had before. I used a power drill to add new holes for the power supply and lift controls, and a few holes for the desk frame (some of the IKEA holes match up). I assembled everything myself but asked for help turning it over after assembly, as recommended in the instructions.

      Even with the additional weight of the monitor/laptop holder, the desk goes up and down nicely, and quietly. The stand/sit pre-set options are perfect - I always sit or stand comfortably (so glad I got that option).

      Nice base, accessories could use some basic improvement.

      Posted by MIke S on Oct 27th 2016

      I bought the standing base a couple of weeks ago and built a top for it ( Meranti and Maple ).

      I think it is an excellent base. I bought one for home because I use a standing desk at work ( and like it ).

      Very sturdy and very little movement in any direction.

      I would buy again. Now if you want the negatives ( all minor nits )
      read on.

      1: The power brick does not naturally sit flush to the bottom of the desktop. The screw holes stick out below the brick. There is also some kind of clip area in the center under the brick. I fixed this by using a one sided padded tap in two strips under the brick. Alternatively you could route out the top slightly for where the screw holes go.

      2: The up/down control is nice, but the screws fit into a very narrow space between to plastic flanges. This could be better planned.

      3: The CPU Holder mounts directly to the desktop. It would be
      nice it the holder mounted onto the frame directly. Honestly it
      would be really nice if the frame had places to mount the Power brick and the CPU holder.

      4: I built my own top which ended up costing me around 300 dollars including clamps and glue. I would have just ordered a solid top but the delivery time ( 7-8 weeks ) was too long ).

      5: The feet are fairly hard and the entire setup slides fairly easily
      if you push against it ( like to push a chair back when you are
      going to get up ). A softer better gripping foot would be nice.
      The desk sits on a bare hardwood floor.

      Ok, enough complaining, If I had to pick out a desk frame all over
      again I would pick this product. It is a very good value for the money.

      Seriously The Best. Buy This.

      Posted by Brian on Oct 13th 2016

      I have a custom live edge desk that I love dearly. The only problem was that after using it for a year I was starting to cramp and feel stiff after long work days. I'm a software developer who works from home 4 days a week and has a standing desk at the non-home office. Based on the 1-day-a-week I spent with my standing desk I knew I had to get one for home. This was PERFECT because I was able to keep my desk and just replace the legs.

      I should note that I am not handy... at all. When it comes to anything house related I balk and am fearful. I was able to get these installed in about two hours from opening the box to having the wires tucked away. There's a review in here from another developer and that was the review that sold me on these legs. I'm so glad I bought them and installed them... never going back.

      These are the best.

      Super stoked on my new stand-up desk. I put these parts on my old, non-stand-up desk and worked like a charm. Motors are nice and quiet, installation was a snap.
