Lost the little feet that elevate your keyboard? Those little plastic squares provided big boost to ergonomics in the workplace. Experts say your keyboard should tilt down & away from the body, a position impossible to accomplish without the aid of those little feet. If yours have snapped off, you can replace them with a binder clip:

  • Step One
    Remove the two metal wings from your binder clip.
  • Step Two
    Slip one metal wing into each of the foot wells.

Voila! You’ve repaired your ergonomic keyboard and improved the ergonomics of your workplace. Happy keyboarding!
