Can I use this cable to extend the USB on my apple keyboard to my MAC?

My USB connection from my keyboard to my MAC is just a bit too short for my desk setup. I would like to add about 2+ feet to enable pulling out my keyboard tray within the desk. Currently I have to type with the tray closed which is AWKWARD at best.

I was told by the Apple Store in town to purchase a USB extension cable; but I've been unable to find one in town. Will this work; or do I need a different option. Going wireless for the keyboard is not a good option for us.

Thanks.

    No, this is specific for iPads, iPhones or iPods (anything with a dock connector).
