Square Grove Sit-Stand Desk Converters Recalled

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on June 6, 2016

In recent years, it has become increasingly documented that sitting for long periods of time can be detrimental to your health. For this reason, many desk creators have started manufacturing many desks that can be used either while sitting or by standing. Another recent invention is a desk converter that attaches to your desk and acts as a second surface on which you can place your computer. Using a winch or other such device, you can raise or lower your computer at will, effectively transforming any standard “sit” desk into a safer “stand” desk. Unfortunately, one of the makers of these sit/stand converter tools has just issued a recall.

The converters were sold between January 2016 and March 2016 online at and The unit retailed at around 220 dollars, which is a fairly standard price for such a device. According to the recall information, the converters were labeled as Square Grove’s Stand-Sit Converters and were all manufactured in Taiwan.

The recall details how the pneumatic lifting mechanism that is the primary function of the machine has a tendency to malfunction during either the assembly of the Stand-Sit converter or during its use. As of right now, there have been two reported incidents where such a malfunction occurred. In one, the result was a bruised finger, and in the other, a finger was broken.

This is clearly a safety hazard for both the individuals who purchased the converter and anyone who might happen to use the converter. It is important that if you believe you may have purchased one of the recalled devices that you contact Square Grove immediately. Customers who alert Square Grove will be provided with a repair kit, at no cost to the consumer.

If you believe that you may have purchased a Square Grove Stand-Sit Converter, it is easy to check your device so that you know for certain. The model affected by the recall is the UPL147, and it includes both the “freestand” and the “clamp” versions of this product. If confusion still exists as to whether or not your unit is affected by the recall, simply look for the words “Uplift Desk” that are printed boldly on the device.
