Klippig handles to store away my Keyboard

Materials: Kipplig handles, added screws, screw driver

Description: I have a tiny working space within my bedroom and I need to exploit the space as good as I can. I recently bought a Keyboard to my Laptop in order to be able to type more comfortably. I have a Vika Amon desk top with the Ekby Östen+Töre Top for some extra space.

Inspired from this hack I simply screwed the Klippig handles in the desired distance under the Ekby-Top and ready is the hide-away for my Keyboard.

    I am thinking of getting the same desktop shelf. How much clearance does it have underneath? I have a speaker that is 6 1/2″ inches in height that I would like to fit under there.

    Vielen, vielen Dank dafür!
    Nach so etwas suche ich schon ewig (Ikeas hauseigene Variante ist zu teuer und viel zu klapprig).

    Do you know the Klippig in less high? If you would have it over your knees you can get against it with your knees.

    Very nice and clever! Great idea and I may pinch it for our new house! If you are anything like me I use my desk for multiple purposes and are forever shoving my keyboard out of the way. Great solution
