What’s the minimum size of desk required to successfully install the Lotus™ Sit-Stand Workstation?

A: Under normal use, the platform is stable. If you want to maximize the durability of the product, please do not lean or apply excessive force to the keyboard platform.

A: Ensure your workstation is raised to the highest position and all of your items are placed on it. As per the image below, turn the knob clockwise (toward the + sign) for heavier weights and counter clockwise (towards the – sign) for lighter weights. Lotus™ is shipped at the lowest setting which is 4.5kg to get to the highest setting 15.8kg is 27 full rotations. For example, if you have two monitors that weigh 4.5kgs each and a keyboard and mouse that combined weigh 1.4kgs, you would turn the knob clockwise approximately 14 full rotations. The exact number of rotations depends on your personal comfort raising and lowering the platform. This is just a guideline.
