Guide to Keyboard Trays

Keyboard Tray : What is it?

Keyboard Trays

Keyboard trays support computer keyboards in a separate tray from the computer desk. They usually attach to the side of the desk using clamps or mounting arms. They can be adjusted to different heights and angles to suit different users. Some models are extended to accommodate a mouse and mouse pad, while others have a separate mouse tray attached to the side. They may also have wrist rests to reduce hand strain during extended use.

Choosing Keyboard Trays (Buying tips)

Weight capacity: Choose a keyboard tray that can hold the entire weight of your keyboard and mouse without bending or bouncing to prevent damage to the devices or injury to your body.

Slip-proof: Choose a keyboard tray with a ribbed or textured surface to keep the keyboard from slipping off.
