What is a Keyboard Wall Mount?
Every home these days has a desktop with all its accessories. Most of the time accommodating them becomes difficult. Wall mounts, therefore, have definitely made the situation much easier. Keyboard wall mount is designed particularly to mount keyboard and mouse mainly. They are really useful because normally these two parts to a computer are the ones most mismanaged, most of the time they just end up on the floor and therefore break after every few months.
You can fix this stand next to your computer station and comfortably use afterwards. The arm’s adjustability feature is what further adds to the benefits. The arm can be moved to certain distance by either bringing it forward or pushing it back against the wall. Both the ways, user can work easily according to his/her requirement.
Keyboard Wall Mount is Very Easy to Assemble as Well
You don’t have to deal with those nails and hammer. All you have to do is unpack the box and read the instruction manual which explains everything in easy steps. It comes with all the necessary tools and screws that would be needed to fix it and therefore installation becomes easier than ever.
Another interesting feature is the mouse tray that is fixed inside of it. The mouse tray can be slided out to right or to left depending on which side is preferred by the user. This means that the left handed users can now easily use the computer without having to make any self adjustments to it. Arm rest is also is there to give more comfort to the users. Such features show us that brands are now becoming more empathetic and they know if they care about their customers, their products will sell more.
Selecting the Best Keyboard Wall Mount
Keyboard wall mounts are all good; it is very unlikely that one will find something bad or wrong with it. Still, if we look closely into the specifications then there is one that needs to be focused on. The whole reliability of the mount will depend on the material that is being used in building these mounts.
If brands use cheap quality steel or wood or metal then chances are that after few weeks or so the stand will come off, causing a monetary loss to the user. Apart from the material, the design should also be classy so that it looks good everywhere, even if it is in a kitchen.
LX Wall Mount Keyboard Arm
Dimensions: 20.1 x 6.8 x 10.9 inches
Price Scale: 8/10
Ergotron has definitely done a good job with their keyboard wall mount. The arm of course is flexible so that the user can change it as per the position that suits him/her the most. Ergotron allows the arm to extend up to 35 inches which is pretty good.
The vertical height can also be adjusted; this means that an adult or a child both can easily work on it by adjusting it to their particular levels. The vertical height can therefore be adjusted by 13 inches. The keyboard tray is broad enough to fit even the maximum size of a keyboard. Mouse tray isn’t fixed and can be slided to the right or left, depending on what the user wants. This acts as a favor to left handed users who normally find it difficult to use computers since mouse is usually placed on the right side.
A padded arm rest ensures that users get full comfort when they have to work for longer periods and therefore don’t face any type of injury or pain. Overall the design is good and won’t look bad when attached somewhere. Customers, however, weren’t pleased with the quality.
They said that the tray was made of cheap plastic and therefore whenever they placed slightly more weight over it the tray bents and bounces a little as well. If Ergotron made it from metal the design would have definitely ended up with a better response from users.
Some customers were happy and some were not, and so amongst them all about 59 percent gave a full 5 star review. Ergotron, in my opinion, could have done much better.

High quality materials have been used, mainly to steel to make sure it can easily mount the weight and not collapse after some time. Customers on the other hand had mixed views regarding this particular product.
They were happy that the stand was easy to install and use afterwards. Mouse pad was also comfortable and the overall built was strong. The things they had complaints against were mainly with the keyboard tray. The tray is small and it is not even that adjustable in terms of height.
The wrist pad isn’t padded thick and thus user had to put an extra base on it to give full comfort and lastly the tray is bouncy, so even if there is slight fast typing the tray would start to bounce making it really irritating for the user. The brand has given some commendable products which is why they expected more and only 41 percent of them gave it a full 5 star review.

There is a mouse extension tray that makes space for a mouse, and then there is a utility pocket that can be used for multi purposes like either placing in stationery or just a drink while you’re using it. In addition to these there is a utility tray as well that can be fixed beneath the keyboard tray. That tray will be of great use as extra stuff can be put onto it. These added accessories are beneficial but they have to be bought separately from the stand, although the total cost would still fall in somewhat the same range.
The whole structure is very compact and can easily fit even in tight places. The stand will be perfect for places like small work stations and small office cabins. Customers were really satisfied with the whole product. They liked how it was easily manageable and still a very strong design.
