Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this keyboard drawer after trying (and bustin') the Fellowes similar product.

The Exponent keyboard drawer comes in a large flat box. The assembly instructions are on the outside.
Inside is the gizmo itself. A bag of brackets. A bag of screws, nuts and bolts. And a bag with wrist-rest pads. Haven't tried those yet. They cover pencil and paper-clip compartments in the drawer's front edge. Not sure I want paper clips near my keyboard, so I might install the pads.

Anyway, You have to assemble this thing before you can mount it under a table. Once assembled it screws into wood.

Assembling the brackets and then the drawer sliders was a bit heavy going for me.

The drawer sliders seem to be symmetric - but are not. So there is a way to get things put together back-to-front, and I did that on one side. You fasten the adjustable brackets on the slider thing while the slider thing is off the drawer itself. Putting the sliders back on I found that one side bound a bit, so I though 'it wants pushing a bit'.

In life there are moments when your strength and you intelligence need to balance. This was one of them.

While putting the slider back on the receptors fixed to the drawer there is a fair amount of 'push and press down tab while sliding slider A onto slider B'. It will click into place in a satisfying way. Under no circumstances assume that if it binds it is because it wants pushing.

I got the parts jammed together and they would not come apart without some use of force. I was able to bend the parts, that got bent, back in place. Some ball-bearings popped out of the 'races' that sit inside the sliders. Well you can pop the ball bearings back in with a bit of a push and a pair of pliers.

The way to tell what is the right way forward on the sliders is to notice that the one non-symmetric part of it is a bent-in tab across the short end of the slider- The other end has no such tab. This tab wants to be at the back as seen from the front, when the drawer is in use.

Some of these drawer things come with a cut-out paper plan you can glue on the underside of the table which shows where to drill the holes to fix the brackets under the table. This one does not. I will undo the brackets later and get the thing sitting straight.

The REASON i still think this is a good unit is that it has those METAL BRACKETS. The Fellowes one doesn't - they are plastic and you will not be pleased with service.

Oh, The F one has a slide out tray for the mouse. This one doesn't.

Interesting book - the Burning Man thing was new to me, and I never saw the Pumpkin throwing canons even though I lived in Delaware for 8 years! Book does not go too deep into the technology - so it is fine for skimming and getting an impression of what people do - but no detailed plans or lists of manufacturers or where to buy materials.
