Can you identify with one or more of these statements?
If so, it's time to rethink how you rest. Instead of a gallon-a-day coffee habit, you could be catching some z's whenever you please. The Under Desk Hammock clips in right under your UPLIFT V2 Standing Desk, providing you with a quiet little cocoon in the shade of your desktop.
And you don't have to sleep in the hammock, necessarily. Your coworkers and friends will want to know more when they see you catching up on email from the comfort of your hanging hideaway. Be sure to show them how it works—and tell them where they can get their own!
Please note: the hammock is not compatible with UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frames, due to interference with the stability crossbar.
We're proud to offer the Under Desk Hammock as the first accessory that attaches to your desk using our patent-pending mounting point system—no need to drill any holes. Simply use a hex wrench to install the anchor plates that came with your desk (if they aren't already installed). Once those are in place, you're ready to clip the carabiners in, spread out the hammock, and lie back. If you need to put the hammock away, it's as simple as unclipping either side and folding it into the storage bag.
The Under Desk Hammock is designed to work with desks 72" wide (or wider) attached to the UPLIFT V2 Frame or the UPLIFT V2 L-Shaped Frame. That gives you a wide selection of workspaces to choose from when you want some added R and R.
Please note: there is a 200 lb weight limit when using the hammock underneath your desk. Outdoor usage can support heavier weights (up to 400 lb).
If you already take advantage of the functionality added by the UPLIFT Desk Connect Dongle and the Connect mobile app, you know that you can change the height of your desk from your smartphone or tablet. Our product designers thought this might also be the perfect way to get in and out of the Under Desk Hammock.
Just lower the desk, so that the hammock rests on the ground, get in, and use the Connect app to raise the hammock up. Reverse this procedure when you're ready to get out.
If you're looking for a place to store your phone or empty your pockets while you're lying down, simply use the hammock's storage bag. It stays attached (so it won't get lost) and hangs down at your side. When it's time to put the hammock away, roll it up and stow it in its matching storage bag.

When mounted to the desk, the hammock has a body weight capacity of 200 lb. Our product team determined this limit by comparing the lifting capacity of the desk frame to the weight of the desktop and any accompanying items on top of it.
When the hammock is tied to other supports, such as trees or poles, the weight limit of the hammock is 400 lb (assuming those supports are strong enough).
The Under Desk Hammock is compatible with all of our UPLIFT V2 Desks/Frames and UPLIFT V2 L-Shaped Desks/Frames, so long as the desktop installed is 72" or wider. UPLIFT V1 Frames (shipped before February 2019) are not compatible with the hammock.
Unfortunately, because of interference with the lower stability crossbar, our UPLIFT V2 Commercial Desks/Frames and UPLIFT V2 Commercial L-Shaped Desks/Frames are not compatible with the Under Desk Hammock.
Take your pick of either blue or gray.
Your UPLIFT V2 Desk came with two anchor plates, which should be installed using the patent-pending mounting point system (see instructions). Once these anchor plates are secured, simply clip the hammock onto each one using the carabiners on either end.
Please note that If you have an UPLIFT V1 Desk (shipped before February 2019), the hammock is not currently compatible.
You can store other items in the hammock (snacks, anyone?), so long as they don't exceed the weight capacity of 200 lb.
The Connect mobile app (when paired with the Connect dongle) enables you to change the height of your desk from your smartphone or tablet. We recommend using this functionality (or adding it) to make getting in and out of the hammock more convenient.
The hammock does come with two 6.5' lengths of rope, which you can use to tie the hammock up to trees or support poles—but the Under Desk Hammock should not be tie-mounted to any desk.
