When not in use, most keyboard trays can be slipped fully under the desk. There are a number of mechanical styles, but the majority resemble the illustration.

Final Verdict

This keyboard tray is designed to last. The arm swivels right and left and can be adjusted up and down. The tray even tilts, offering it a lot of versatility. There’s enough depth to add a wrist rest. We like how the mouse tray can be adjusted independently. Two levers are present: one for extension and the other for tilting. Both are designed to last and are well-made.

Sliding in and out from under the desk is a little “stiff.” It’s possible, but it’ll take some work. If you attach the front edge of the frame at the front edge of the desk, the tray can extend at least 6 inches beyond the desk, so we’d suggest putting it all together for balance before separating the frame as directed, to ensure you understand where it can line up.

We’d definitely recommend this product for anyone looking for an affordable yet quality keyboard tray.
