My keyboard tray broke from leaning on it. It wouldn't have broken if they included two screws. But staples forgot.

Things you need to fix this stupid desk:
1. Glue (I chose Gorilla because its strong and it bonds metal to wood.)
2. Clamp (I didn't have a large enough clamp so i supported it from below.)
3. Stupid broken desk (But thats a given)

Step 2: Assemble Clamp

Stack objects until they reach required hight.

Apply small amount of glue. The glue expands as it dries.

Step 4: Clamp It!!

Remove and dissemble clamp. Then install the piece of wood that holds up. Finally test by putting the keyboard back and using.
