Keyboard Arms and Trays


Keyboard arms, that attach to a desk, are an effective ergonomic accommodation. Different arms offer different degrees of adjustment, including in/out (from the desk), sit/stand, and pivot. Arms are a far cheaper way of giving keyboard adjustability when compared to replacing your desk with a desk that is adjustable in height, either electronically or hand-crank adjustable.


However, when considering a keyboard arm it is crucial to know if the desk can accommodate the tray. Please check the following before ordering a keyboard arm:

  • The arm is attached to the undersurface of the desk's desktop (using screws). Is the desktop made of material that can accept the keyboard arm screws?
  • The track in which the keyboard arm moves has a fixed length. This length is frequently 23", but in some cases can be as long as 28" or as short as 17". The depth of the undersurface of your desk's desktop must be deep enough to accommodate this length.
  • Is there any strapping or on the desk's desktop undersurface that will interfere with mounting the keyboard arm track? A clear run from the front edge to the back of the desk is ideal.
  • Keyboard arms are heavy. To install it helps to have an assistant who can hold the arm from above while you attach it to the underside of the desktop. The easiest way to install the arm is to turn the desk upside down.
  • If you have pedestals on either side of your desk, ensure there is adequate clearance between the pedestals to allow the keyboard tray to be stored under the desk.

See measurements and considerations for attaching keyboard arms and trays to desks for more information.


When estimating the cost of a keyboard arm ensure that you include the cost of a keyboard tray. Trays are usually sold separate from the arm.
