    Not all keyboards come with wrist-rests, your first defense against carpal tunnel syndrome, and the ones that do, feature rigid plastic ones, which are extensions of the keyboards' bodies. Tt eSports announced a compelling alternative to users of keyboards that either lack wrist-rests, or feature detachable plastic ones, soft rubber foam ones, made from the same material as mousepads. Measuring 470 mm x 70 mm x 15 mm, these wrist-rests come in all-black, and Tt eSports sponsored TeamDK themed styles. The company didn't announce pricing or availability.

    I wonder how long it'll be before they remember that these things used to be popular with mice too...well, technically still are if you count boob mousepads in Japan.

    For those that dont know.... a company called Grifiti makes the same products - Ive tried 2 of theirs and Im very happy with them.

    Material wise they shouldnt be any different then the ones that TT are trying to market/sell

    Grifiti are available in both the UK & US either by the site directly or Amazon which is where i bought mine. They maybe available in other countries.

    Glad to see someone else uses Grifiti wrist rests! I have one for work and one for home and I love them. They're the perfect height for most mechanical keyboards and have a few options for length and width depending on your keyboard size and desk space. Plus they don't have the giant red Thermaltake logo printed under your left wrist that will wear off after a few months.

    werent really perfect height for me.... the wrist rests that came with the Corsair K70 was perfect but mine kept sliding around as i was trying to use it with my ducky shine III. I bought a grafiti Fat wrist rest - that sat a little too high, then i got the slim one which was too low. So what i did was cut off part of the slim and superglued it on to the other part so its got that slanted feel going on just like the K70 wrist rests - Only then was it perfect for my use.

    That sucks. I have a Das Keyboard Model S and a CODE keyboard from WASD and the thicker Grifiti wrist rest lines up perfect with both of them. I actually learned about Grifiti from the WASD folks when I ordered the CODE keyboard. They sold a 17" wrist rest for the full-size keyboards but I wanted a 14" wrist rest for the 87-key I bought and they pointed me to Grifiti.
