Patent-Pending UPLIFT V2 Frame Design
Our UPLIFT V2 Desk frame design exclusively features discreet built-in mounting holes (patent-pending). These points enable you to attach accessories such as desk extensions, CPU holders, and power strips directly to your frame. This new way of mounting is so robust, you can even hang a hammock from it! We have many frame attachments planned for release, so you can continue your desk's evolution as your needs change.
Please note: The Under-Desk Hammock is compatible with the UPLIFT V2 Frame; it is not compatible with the UPLIFT V2 Commercial frame due to interference with the crossbar.
Unlock All of the Features with the Advanced Keypad
You can stop wasting valuable work time holding the up or down arrow—at least to change your desk height.
With one-touch adjustments available across four programmable memory keys, you can shift your desk into stand, sit, or perch mode, just by pressing a button. Your desk will quickly rise or lower to your chosen level by the time you relocate your chair; it's a graceful synchronicity of movement.
Enjoy working with assurance that your desk will only raise and lower when you tell it to, thanks to the keypad lock (child lock) feature. And the advanced anti-collision sensitivity feature means that if your desk ever does come into contact with a person or an object, it will stop and reverse slightly, for safety.
Not only does the desk's internal memory save your sitting, standing, perching, and guest height preferences, but you'll also be able to adjust your desk's upper and lower limits.You can prevent your desk from ever bumping into shelves above or file cabinets below.
To improve focus and reduce distractions, the auto-dark function dims the keypad's LED display 10 seconds after use.

Frequently Asked Questions
Click here for FAQs for our UPLIFT V2 Frame and UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame.
- Does this frame have to be arranged in an "L" shape?
Certainly not! You can install the third leg towards the back of a rectangular desktop for additional support. Contact our Sales Pros for more custom configurations.
- Can I install my desk's legs in a different configuration than I see in the installation manual?
We recommend following the guidelines in our assembly manual so that you will have the sturdiest desk possible. If you have any other configurations in mind, contact our Sales Pros, and they will be able to go over custom configurations that offer adequate support.
- I just installed my frame but it won't change heights. What is wrong?
The most likely scenario is that one of the legs has not been properly connected. The desk will only move if all three of the legs are connected. Double-check the connections and then give us a call for further support.
- Can I put the third leg anywhere?
The third leg is separate and can be placed anywhere. That being said, you will want to make sure that the load of your desktop is evenly dispersed between the three legs—or your desk will not be stable.
- How many pounds can this frame hold?
This frame can handle up to 535 pounds.
- How many people will I need in order to assemble the 3-leg desk?
You should be able to attach the frame to the desk by yourself. However, setting the desk right-side up after installation is definitely a two-person job.
- What are the maximum dimensions for any desktop I put on this frame?
For maximum support, we suggest installing a desktop between 36" and 84" wide.
- What kind of material should I use for my desktop?
Make sure you are using a solid desktop that is at least 3/4" to 1" thick. The frame will be attached with wood screws, so make sure your desktop can support those as well.
