Understated, rugged. This finish selection will blend well with most color schemes.
Like wood versions, this finish also provides a good background for logo addition.

These models are designed to instantly convert to standard desk-height versions of their core units on demand. The LS-512P model is shown below, sans its lectern crown and base.

Lift & Roll mechanisms can be seen at base. Lecterns can be relocated in-house without the need to remove computer equipment. The lectern rests normally on the floor until mobility is desired. Insert the keyjack and with a flick of the wrist and just 8 pounds of pressure, the Lift & Roll mechanisms are engaged and the unit is up on wheels, ready to roll.

Note diagram below:

Insert the keyjack, push the Lift & Roll (jacking caster) keyjack to the "down" position to elevate the unit. Always push the handle towards the center of the unit when you want to elevate it.

Insert the keyjack in the "straight-up" position. Push DOWN until casters LOCK in place.


To RAISE the unit, putting it up on its wheels, insert the keyjack into the Lift & Roll opening. The keyjack opening may be concealed from view, behind a removable black or wood cover.

Regardless of WHICH Lift & Roll you are about to elevate, Left, or Right ALWAYS press downward with the handle going towards the CENTER of the unit.

Press down until you feel it the jacking caster mechanism LOCK IN PLACE. If it seems to require more than 8 pounds of pressure, you may be trying to press downward in the wrong direction.

Once the unit has been permanently positioned, you will want to retract the casters so that The OFFICE is lowered into place and the wheels are invisible.

When lowering the unit into place, insert the handle of the keyjack so that it is facing the center of the unit. You are going to return it to the straight up, or 12 o'clock position.

Exercise caution once casters are unlocked to lower the unit, since the keyjack bar (provided) will move rapidly in the direction that it is being pulled.
